    Review: Seahorse SE710 4-pistol travel case

    I got this at (the horror, I know) Gander Mountain on closeout for only about a dollar more than Amazon. A dollar well spent, IMO to get to feel and compare in person to the various other cases that they have there, particularly to the Pelican brand Cases. I found this Seahorse brand case to be of better quality than the house brand "Mil-Spec" cases, but not on the same level as the Pelican cases. In my opinion, the Price to Quality ratio makes this Seahorse a better deal than the Pelican.

    Pros:
    • Ease of separating the gridded foam insert
    • Aforementioned price point
    • Overall size - this thing is huge.
    • Locking points for padlocks outside of the latches. (For some reason, this seems sturdier to me.)
    • Pressurization and waterproof
    • Apparent quality of foam - very sturdy and bounces back. Time will tell its durability.
    • Made in Murricuh
    • Warranty - "Unconditional Lifetime Guarantee"


    Cons:
    • This is branded as a "4-gun" case. It is a "4-gun" case. It is only about a "3-gun, 4 mags each, and 3 boxes of ammo" case. Maybe with some creative foam work, you could stack guns 2 deep and slip 6 into there,
    • Gridded foam is only stepped once for depth. It is either on the x plane or on the x-2in. plane. If you want to recess something to it's own depth, you have to go all the way down and then build it back up (see below). This resulted in a .5 star loss.


    Bottom Line: Great case for the money. Easy to configure, rugged, and weather proof. 4.5/5 stars overall.





    Take a look at the Magazine wells I made and their depth: The left one has 2x Walther P99 mags, the right one has 1x.


    To build up the ammo box area and the gun area, I used the following technique: Be very careful to pull out the foam insert as a single block, lay the object in the bottom, replace foam that was removed, and trim flush. This will give you roughly a 2/3 1/3 split depth wise. one block will raise the object to the surface, the other will protrude the object by roughly a third. See flush gun and raised ammo box.

    worth noting that I posted this review to the company's facebook page and got a response from Jennifer in their customer service dept thanking me for the review.

    LOL...I monitor my company's FB pages myself. When people post a comment on a business page normally there is some "intern" in the Marketing department who is instructed to thank people who say nice things and delete comments that are bad. Some companies don't even pay attention to their FB pages anymore. Feel good that you at least got a response from them.
