Tl;Dr, Pelican cases are the BEST. Reasonable customization is possible with the interiors of most of the cases. They look good, protect your gear very well from multiple/combination hazards, can be easily secured shut/down with cables/chains. Generally the best in AIO storage!I love all of my Pelican cases. They're just, AWESOME! For this specific purchase, I bought a second 1550, it's the grey one in my picture. I have a black one too, they're physically identical aside from the polymer dye. Pelican cases are what I choose when I need to move/store something that's mission critical, extremely fragile, or just plain important. Pelican cases are the best level of protection for you gear within a reasonable price range, period. Use extra care when measuring your storage volume/dimensional-basis needs. The posted dimensions are notably tight and may even be restricted to the largest section of a compound curved side (I haven't checked). Personally, with the pick and pluck foam, I bind the foam together with a silicone, and bind the foam to the case walls too. A simple silicone RTV will work well. I have found Permatex Ultra Black LOOKS the BEST with GOOD adhesive characteristics, and Permatex clear ADHERES the BEST but looks BAD. The larger pick and pluck designs, especially when you take out a lot of volume, the foam has a tendency to distort and pull free, generally just not hos its shape at all. ''Gluing'' everything down and together addresses this issue very well and permanently. Adhering the foam together is simple, but adhering the foam to the case body is difficult, rather, the silicone will break bond with a small bit of force unless you rough up the case surface with low-numerical grit sandpaper a bit. Doing this whole room-temp vulcanizing work on these cases and their foam is a bit of an art and a science. It's really easy to make it look like total crap inside if you don't know what you're doing, don't have the proper tools, or don't take considerable time and care with it. If you're not skilled with caulk/RTV/putty or otherwise any type of non-Newtonian material application, ask someone for help. The foam is NOT cheap to replace, at any size case!I know it may seem like the price point is a bit high, but this is one of the situations in life where you really do get what you pay for. I have not personally had to call the company yet, but from what I understand, if something simple is wrong, like the valve is missing/broken, o-ring breaks, that kind of stuff, the company will just ship whatever you need to you at no cost if you're polite and a good customer. I honestly have not heard anyone ever say a single bad thing about these cases, nor have I had a single negative experience with any of them. In the future, I intend to purchase a good deal more, but these really are expensive (especially the tier I am looking to acquire!) when you get into the larger models. I do need two more, but I want to get the larger two-rifle case for my two rifles. My point is, this is my no-questions-asked go-to case solution, and I am a very, very picky and observant engineer. Pick and pluck foam is. hit or miss size wise. I almost always end up custom cutting beyond the pluck boundary, cutting the sections in half horizontally/parallel to ground. Height variations are a pain, but that's where the kitchen knife comes in to play. I much prefer using a blade with this foam over hot-wire. Hot wire tends to sink too much heat into the foam, and it just keeps melting without a ton of cooling. I know there are companies and Pelican offer custom foam, but I'm not entirely sure it's ''worth'' it dollar for dollar. If you need a perfect fit, anti-static foam, or just love the look, then by all means, who am I to define your opinion for you?
