Need a 54" soft gun case

I've been searching with no luck for a good quality 54" soft gun case for my 50 cal.Sharps express. I know when I had my gun shop we sold them as some of the early model T/C Hawkens required them. I've been using a blanket for the last 20 years and while removing it from the blanket I almost dropped it on the ground. Not good. Any ideas?

check eBay or Amazon.com - Midway etc. I just did a quick check on eBay and there are a number of 54" cases listed.

At Christmas time last year, I ran across some decent ones at Menard's - they had a section of hunting stuff for Christmas and I picked up a half dozen rifle/shotgun cases for very little. I even picked up a dozen zippered padded handgun cases. I just waited until they went on sale.

I suppose you could order a custom made one for a small additional cost. As far as I knowing of a manufacture selling that 54" size in stores. Can't help yaw.

These are extremely well made, padded, etc. See the section for musket cases where there is a listing for a 58" case.

Boyt makes great, high quality gun cases. Check out www.boytharness.com They make cases 54" long. I have used them for my own single shot rifles and have been very satisfied. Affordable, but not cheap.

Nice looking case Hawg . . . if my wife saw that, she'd be using it for a runner on the table!

Dixie Gun Works - SA5610. I use the shorter SA3300s and they are great! Can't beat the price either.

I bought a nice case at Walmart for my Sharps Long Range; 34" barrel on it. Fits good, and is well padded plus has a large ammo pouch. Paid $25.00.

Also, Marstar in Canada sells a buckskin fringed case; I have my .54 flintlock in it, with lots of room to spare.

Regards,

I think I'll go for the Boyt. It even has a compartment for shells. I found one online for $75. My Sharps is the long range version with a 36" barrel. It's heavy so I want a heavy duty case for it.

My Sharps is the long range model as well; the one I bought from Walmart is heavy duty, ammunition compartment, well padded, and was around$25-$27.00
and the Sharps fits well without being a sloppy fit. Camo pattern, but oh well.
