    You said "hard" case, My 85TSS sounds as if it is set up like yours / adj butt plate and extended choke tube. My SKB fits nicely in a Warwick aluminum single barrell case with a little room to spare. This case does require you to break down the gun. Hope this helps. Jess

    ??? ARE yuo looking for a "break" down case ? My SKB 85TSS is 34" plus my comp-N-choke.Got it at Jaquas. If you want a "break down case ...I'll look up the manufacturer.

    P.S. #2 .....I see no name on my case. But it is a very nice case. Jaquas.com or 419-422-0912. Tell them your problem. They are a SKB dealer. If I remember right.....they were a "generic" or "bulk" hard case that they "threw in with the deal. mine is Black exterior with a blue felt linning, 3 combonation locks. If you want I'll send PICS

    Paul,
    I was mistaken, It isn't a generis case and it wasn't "thrown in the deal".
    It will be a bit before I can post a PICS. Perhaps Thurday. I took the pics but posting to photobucket requires time for me to do. I did find my original invoice from Jaquas. I paid $150 for the case. It is made in Italy and the company is NEGRINI. I looked online and they must still be in buisiness. It's molded ABS and suitable for airline travel. Good luck finding one in the States....but as I said earlier....try Jaquais 1st

    The Pelican 1700 Long Case has a 35.75" long interior dimension. Check one out...nothing better or tougher IMHO.

    85TTR:

    Just wondering if you had ever found a hard case for your gun. I'd told you I'd check with Warwick and see if they have any for over 34 inch bbls. Hadn"t been able to get any answers until today. Paul had some long cases made up at one time , I'd thought I'd remembered this . We found one and it has an inside barrel chanel length of 36 and 3/4 inches. This would accept your bbls. And the recceiver would fit also. They are Aluminum Single case, and priced at $165.00 plus shipping. Let me know if I can help out in any way. Mick McGinley. E-Mail at Twixter@verizon.net, or call me at 608=444=6233. Thanks

    (Paul) Warwick Cases can make a custom hard case. With the newer tall stocks and ribs, this is going to be an ongoing problem,,,,but Warwicks are there right now. BOL

    hi paul, we can build you a case that will fit your high rib skb. our mach-1 might be just the ticket for you. the barrel channel is 36" so your 35"bbl with the extended choke should work just fine. also on all mach series case we have extra area in the reciever are for large or unusal stock dimentions.

    <a href="http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/ii166/jd28hd/?action=view&current=Picture006.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    interior of the mach-1. we also make the mach-2 for combo guns. the mach-2 has 2 barrel channels.

    <a href="http://s264.photobucket.com/albums/ii166/jd28hd/?action=view&current=Picture004.jpg" target="_blank">[​IMG]</a>

    exterior of the mach-1

    these cases can be made a little longer if 36" is not long enough for your barrel with the extended choke tube.

    interior colors are red, blue, or black.

    exterior colors are blue or black.

    mach-1 regular retail price is $300.00 plus shipping. the mach-1 is on sale now for $275.00 delivered to the lower 48 states. this is a limited time offer subject to change at any time without notice. thanks. doug hubbart, colorado custom cases. (573)286-9905 jd28hd@aol.com

    Hello,
    I am looking for a case for an 85TSS combo as well that would accomodate a 34" unsingle barrel. While I would love a Colorado case (beautiful and great quality), i'm looking in the $150 price range.

    Thanks,
    Angel
