First Look: Plano AW2 Pistol Cases

posted on April 29, 2021

If you need to safely transport multiple pistols, Plano has you covered. The interior of their AW2 line of cases has sufficient room for large frame revolvers, full size pistols, cameras, video equipment, or any sort of gear you can dream for. Chances are, there is an AW2 case that is the right size to meet your needs.

As with all Plano products, the cases in the AW2 line are made in the U.S. and feature the Plano exclusive Dri-Loc seal to keep dirt, dust, debris, and moisture out The interior features pluckable foam for a secure fit to your equipment, and a lockable, airline-approved over-molded handle allows for easy transport. In addition to this, a change in altitudes won't affect any sensitive contents inside of your case thanks to the incorporated pressure release valve.

The cases in the Plano AW2 line come in four pistol, two pistol and one pistol sizes. They all feature dual-stage lockable latches and are grey in color with red latches. The size of capacity of each case varies.

Review: Maxim PDX Pistol

The Maxim PDX line is, in many ways, the ultimate expression of the PDW concept. It’s a small, easy to handle AR-pattern firearm that uses either Maxim’s superb PDW brace in the pistol model or a collapsible stock when sold as a short barrelled rifle.
