I am looking for a mp5a4 hardshell case but can't find any. They are all too small or too large. Academy has some but they are 46" minimum. I don't mind buying online but I don't want to spend $150. What do you suggest?

Try looking at Home Depot. Seriously, they have some hard-side tool-cases that might work.

I'd suggest buying the cheap, big one from Academy so that you will have room for a second AEG or GBB when you get one.

I'd also check Harbor Freight on Lamar & 290W down south. They have quite a few aluminum cases that look like you could cut up the foam to fit pistols/submachineguns etc.

They tend to be cheaper than Home Depot, which doesn't hurt...

Ah, good additional resource. What about cases to fit larger weapons? Or would conventional gun cases be cheaper?

Okay that's cool I think I will try Home depot and the other store, but will probably get the 46" at academy in the end if you guys think it will be ok :). Thanks for the input everyone, any other suggestions will be appreciated.

I think Harbor Freight only has the smaller cases...nothing big enough for rifles I can remember seeing.

well, i've been looking for a case myself for my MP5J and my SR16, but found another solution to my problem... but thats my problem. a good one i found was on amazon.com.--

it was 20 bucks for a 52". there was also another for 35 bucks that was 53". although they are double gun cases, you still can use them with one, then if you get another, you don't have to buy another.

Yeah that is very similar to the one that I got. Only thing is I don't like putting 2 guns in it, it gets full quickly :).

eh, yeah your kind of right. i had made a paper replica of the inside dimensions, my guns barely fit.

A site i know of has some new specials that include the gun, some stuff, and a hard shell case. Maybe you can figure out what type it is.

EDIT: It's with all their ICS guns (which includes an A4), but i think that TM is the same size as ICS. :)

EDIT#2: well, they came out with the case: http://www.kapowwe.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Product_Code=1-2-800&Category_Code=Latest
