I can't imagine why they quit making cases. The fellow who made the Aries cases here in MD used a work table the size of a snooker table for every operation neccesary to make a case. A sheet metal brake and a band saw were his only tools other than a riveter. The overhead couldn't have been overwhelming for Nasco. You could run the whole business out of a two car garage. The Nasco and the Aries are very similar except that the Aries used the superior Sessions latches which can't be sheared off at the airport the way the Nasco latches can be. The Anvil cases are also equipped with the Sessions latches. If you have been to a music show or concert, you have seen Anvil rolling cases. Anvil used to make gun cases also, but they also quit. There is nothing made today that is as good as an Aries case for competition shooters. I would not go on an airplane with an Americase unless I covered all locks and latches with a couple of wraps of duct tape, a real pain when the airline people want to see the gun.
