It's a Pelican 1450

Really pretty easy to work with. Having a couple clean sharp razor blades to make the horizontal cuts is pretty crucial. It won't come out perfect but it works really well.

I still have an opportunity to make the slide area "modular" and fit another 2 grip modules beneath the slides. Not sure I want to commit to that just yet.

I laid the pattern out well before I purchased it and knew how much I had to work with to the inch. I did not anticipate the grip areas to need some extra width.

That's pretty clean. Nice job.
I've seen some cases with pluck foam, maybe I'll grab one up for the kid's pistols.

This site will custom custom cut foam for you; they provide an online, custom design tool. And for a small fee, you can get "insurance" in case your first try does not work out. The can provide just the insert, or the insert and case. They are not cheap, but I don't think they are unreasonable.

looks very nice .... not sure I understand why you keep the frames sans slides -- it seems to me that there would be an increased opportunity for **** to find its way into the actions?

The foam is still pretty new but in my experience, it holds up pretty well unless you really pick at it (which stippled grips and rubber grips can do a little.) worse case is I spend another $20 and get the Kaizen foam option and do it again.

I have a 1500 Pelican and a SKB case.
The SKB is for my AR (actually Ruger SR 556)
The Pelican is for the 4 or so weapons I take to the range. Usually each in a Rug inside the padded case.
Both are secure and Cop Proof. (Officer, why do you want to look in the luggage? What is your probable cause?)
