    I wish to buy or even develop a dealorship selling Perazzi, Beretta, and CG style ABS cases without the gun names. Can anyone tell me who makes these cases and shorten my search time? Admittedly, I have yet to take an afternoon to find these, but perhaps one of you knows where I can go to get some made or buy "lots".

    Thanks. Jack

    A Google search for "gun cases" will get you closer. Also look for SKB cases.

    All the Perazzi, Beratta ,etc. cases are made by Negrini in Italy. They have a website.

    You can also search for US Companies featuring "injected molding plastics". Depending on your budget, you could have cases custom made to your specs. The only problem would be that you have to purchase "x" amount.

    This would help cover the cost of the molds, etc.

    Just a thought.

    Dear Jack,
    The plastic molded style cases are unique to Perazzi. I am sure that the sub-contractor in Italy or whatever country has the mold/tooling. I am sure that he would be severely punished by P..... if he made other sales outside his contract requirements. Then selling them in the US with copyrighted logos & font will bring you lots of grief. I wish you luck with your quest!
    Besides, the All American design cases with the forearm in its own recess instead of attached to the barrel removes excess wear on the forearm iron and barrel lug. Think how many times a day you have to remove the forearm and re-attach during a day of shooting! Scratches and damage occur frequently that the owner introduces! I do not like the heavy weight of the All-American cases, but that is neccessary in order to survive 5 ft drops to the tarmac during airline travel....been there and watched my two gun AA case come off the conveyor!! The case and guns survived with no damage!
    Those plastic cases are pretty but my common sense will not let me succumb to the pretty stuff!
    Respectfully submitted,
    Jet Boat Bill

    Jack, I don't see much of a market for those cases. About the first thing the buyer of new Beretta combo does is replace the plastic case with a metal or at least more sturdy one that the 34" single barrel will fit into while wearing an extended choke tube and without having the forend attached to a barrel.

    But who knows - you might become the Joe Kuhn of gun cases!

    Remington used to offer a poly case with some of their guns...

    regards,

    Let me try this one more time.... The cases you wish are made by NEGRINI. Click on the above website and look. They make all the plastic cases for P, B and CG etc. They sell the same cases without the logos. They are great cases although I would not personally trust them on the airlines I know people who do quite successfully. They are great house to car type cases....

    Several years ago I had a brief discussion with a gentleman that had something to do with the original SKB case co. He had left the company over creative differences and started up his own case company, again. He gave one of my companions an excellent sample case for expensive camera gear right on the spot. I'll find out the name of the company for you.

    You should also look into the Pelican Co. cases I have listed. We do a lot of rugged traveling with expensive equipment, and it is all stored in Pelican cases. My guns travel in SKB, but only because I haven't been able to justify new cases in 20 years. When I can, they will go into Pelican's.

    I have had guns damaged by the rubber foam lined cases. That is one big problem with the plastic cases that are available. I believe the cases you are looking for have cloth glued in them. Good Luck

    If you speak Italian, you might get something out of their website!

    For an injected molded case the John Hall case is pretty hard to beat. Great case to go back and forth to the club or traveling to a shoot by vehicle. Will not hold up to airline baggage handling. Hasting had the tooling and molds for the case and were auctioned off when they went out of business. It went cheap. There was a guy in Las Vegas who is in the injecting molding business and does lot of casino items and tried to buy the molds from Hastings a couple years ago and start mfrg. the cases again, but Hastings thought they were gold. Was no return on the investment at the price they wanted.

    Mick McGinley of Mar-Mic Cases (877)962-6233 makes a great house to car to club case. It holds my Beretta 34" bottomsingle with a Wright's choke tube on the end with room to spare. It was a nice upgrade over the blue piece of crap it came in.

    These guys make the best cases on the planet at a great price. I first ran into them at the Pomona gun show when it still existed and still do biz with them. Nice folks and great products. Buddy of mine took his guns to S Africa in one of their cases. By the time it got back to NorCal it looked like it had been to Mars and the guns were in perfect condition.

    I pulled the handle off my John Hall four times and decided that was enough of that and offed it. Plastic cases are fine for home->club and back I would never trust one traveling. Not to mention the Steal Me notice the logos on the case provides.

    works for me
