With an ever-increasing sea of new products available in the greater tactical market, Plano is doubling down to offer consumers more specialized tactical storage cases for firearms, ammunition and accessories than ever before. Man grabbing a Plano Gun Case Building on the release of their premium line of Field Locker Mil-Spec Cases in 2015, which now includes three long gun cases, three pistol cases and a compound bow case, Plano announces the 2017 release of their all-new Tactical Series Gun Cases, consisting of three all-new Tactical Long Gun Cases and a Tactical Pistol Case. A Tactical Ammo Crate is also available in the series.

Filling the need for uncompromising yet more moderately-priced hard-sided firearms and accessory cases, Plano’s tough new Tactical Series Cases combine heavy-duty materials and hardware with a variety of tactical features that suck it up and drive on. Long-gun cases, for example, feature numerous internal and external lash-down and strapping points for maximum versatility. Standard long-gun models come in either 38.75” or 44.25” lengths, while an additional MOLLE (Modular Lightweight Load-Carrying Equipment) version is also available. The new Tactical Pistol Case shares the same striking aesthetics and is large enough to accommodate one large, scoped pistol or two large-frame pistols. All new Tactical Series Gun Cases include molded-in padlock tabs.

“These all-new Tactical cases have an almost sinister look and offer extreme protection and enhanced utility at a great price,” says Plano Brand Manager, Scott Borto​, who is particularly enthusiastic about the new Tactical MOLLE Gun Case, which features a removable ballistic nylon wrap with storage pocket and practical MOLLE webbing over the center section of the case’s exterior.

“Our highly successful X-2 Range Bag Series taught us that we can add a tremendous amount of value and utility to our molded tactical cases by incorporating snug-fitting and durable wraps on their exteriors,” Borto continues. “It’s a feature that our customers like and have really spoken up about.” Plano Model 1074200 Tactical Gun Case Heavy-duty material High-density foam-padded interior Durable snap-down latches Padlock tabs Molded-in, heavy-duty handle Versatile internal lash-down mounts Accessory lash-down mounts External tactical strapping points Interior dimensions: 42” x 13” x 3.5” Exterior dimensions: 42.25” x 17.88” x 5.31” Made in the USA UPC 0-24099-74200-9 MSRP: $69.99

  1. The grooves in the sides create rigidity in the outer surface. If the surface was smooth, or even curved, without the grooves it’s far more likely to collapse under weight, bend and flex. Any time you can add grooves or ribs to a large flat surface, it will increase it’s overall strength a great deal.

  2. What is the purpose of the deep grooves in the sides? They look cool but mainly just look like dirt traps. If they don’t serve a purpose, it looks like form over function.
