I found this box with a glass top at Michaels for 10 bucks. It's just big enough for a colt navy or army.
It comes as plain basswood, and it's just an empty box inside. There's no latch for the lid, but it is hinged at the back. You just lift it up by the front edge.
You need to stain it, put in a piece of foam rubber (or similar) and cover with some kind of material. I used a piece of ivory satin that I bought at Walmart.
So for 20 bucks you have a decent little box. Traditions makes one that you can get online for about 50 dollars, but the only liner color they offer is red, which I did not want.
