With the rising need of enhanced precision rifle on modern battlefields, the SOF community is looking closely at the possible implementation of precision cartridges, like 6.5 Creedmoor and .260 Remington, within an AR10 frame.
The need for precise fire from these platform requires and inherent higher degree of precision within the entire package, from the sniper rifle itself to optics and mounting systems.
To achieve reliability and consistency in precision the proper care and maintenance of these platform is key; the use of high quality and durable cases, for storage and transportation solution, aids the operators in successfully fulfilling the mission with confidence in their equipment.
The 13513 case is able to protect a fully assembled AR-10 platform (or variant) with a barrel up to 18″ with its accessories (suppressor, thermal/IR clip-on optics, laser devices and additional magazines).
The internal dimensions are (L,W,D): 1350mm, 350mm, 135mm [53 1/8 in, 13 3/4 in, 5 5/16 in].

Dual Independent Night Vision Mount
This mount allows to use two independent devices with features that are usually present in dual night vision devices. The mount allows to fold upwards each device independently, also creating a much lower profile when stowed on top of the helmet system. The use of quick disconnect attachment points allows to have great versatility and flexibility allowing the temporary use of one single device (for example for aiming a primary weapon sight in passive night vision applications) or for utilizing a different unit on one side (for example a thermal device).
LAMG (Light Assault Machine Gun)
This belt features a retractable 4000 lbs Kevlar lanyard with Dyneema stitching. The thin profile of the belt allows the belt to be worn through the belt loops of most combat pants, for a safe use even when leg harnesses are not worn.

At 6.5 feet long, the stretcher is long enough to accommodate all operators and has a maximum carrying capacity of 400 lbs for both the operator and his/her gear. The stretcher has 5 handles per side to give each team a multitude of configurations for carrying a downed man. When paired with the Combat Carbon Poles (sold separately), you get the lightest semi-rigid expedient medical litter / stretcher available at only 3.5 lbs total weight. Combat Carbon Poles found here
Additionally, the litter collapses and zips together to form an essential multipurpose lightweight bag for operators to collect items such as Sensitive Site Exploitation (SSE) Material or gear from a downed man. The bag is augmented with a single adjustable strap for easy carry when loaded, a drawstring to secure the bag contents, and is small enough to fold up and be stored in a cargo pocket.

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.
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.
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.

Explorer Cases 15416
With an internal length of 1540 mm (60 5/8 in) this is case is able to store an protect a fully assembled .50 BMG, while still offering the same functionalities of a high-end gun case.
MUB (Multi Utility Box)
This weather resistant case is designed to be a logistically practical and efficient solution for transporting and storing equipment that can better withstand exposure to the elements: therefore it doesn’t offer the same degree of protection from weather or impacts and it comes at a very interesting price. The MUB is offered in two sizes and features multiple carrying methods, including wheels and drag-handle. In our opinion this case is ideal for soft goods and any type of equipment that is voluminous and less fragile that precision instruments or optics. This would be a perfect storing / transporting solution for plate carriers, helmets and gun belts.
Explorer Cases 3005 (Pistol Case)
In the past few months we have received many private inquiries on tactical bump helmets with protective mandibles for first responders. In some instances, especially outside of the United States, transporting and storing ballistic helmets requires special documentation and further bureaucracy; this could therefore be a sufficient solution for those activities that require a certain amount of protection, modularity of accessory and op flexibility.
