The Explorer Cases 15416 is the longest rifle hard case available on the market and is able to carry an assembled .50 caliber sniper rifle. Due to the construction process and the due to the properties of the copolymer polypropylene, the case is rigid and provides protection along all axis of the content, despite the very generous dimensions.

Mechanical strength is one of the most important aspects with such a long case. In order to protect and maintain zero and POA/POI during transportation the case has to keep its rigidity without compromising transportability with excessive weight. The balance between ribbing and the polymer compound delivers a great result even with these dimensions.

The protective hard case is a vital element in equipment transportation, protection and storage. The very close relationship between hard cases and firearms revolves around the key concept of having the firearms stored and protected in order to be combat-effective when taken out and utilized, even with minimal preparation.
One of the advantages of these protective solutions is that environmental effects do not alter the status of firearm during transport or storage. In the past, due to technological limitations, the ability to stored assembled rifles was compromised in some instances; for example, .50 BMG precision rifles or even sniper rifles with suppressors already attached (direct thread for example).

Wider Latches with Safe Button

The larger dimensions require a more secure locking and sealing system, hence the wider latches with the addition of a safe button. To ensure the maximum protection and sealing consistency the case features 6 latches, 4 on the longer edge and 1 per each side.

Reinforced Hinges

The four hinges are heavily reinforce and, despite the large dimension of the case, provide a smooth and unimpeded opening, even after being exposed to dusty or sandy environments. The case, when opened  while empty, does not tip.

Carrying Handles 

 

The 15416 case was designed specifically for platforms that are most likely going to be heavier; consequently the carrying method needs to be effective for the user without obstructing the operating procedures of the case. The dimension, position and build quality of the handles featured by Explorer Cases are functional and comfortable.

The inherent nature of this case is to efficiently carry weapon platforms that usually require disassembly or two man operation. The wheels of the 15416 are oversize and provide, in conjunction with the rigidity of the case, a very effective carrying solution on all sorts of terrain, despite the heavy load.
