Longer cases for long guns?

Is there a inexpensive soft or hard gun case for guns that won't fit a standard 52 inch (external) case? I have a Remington 870 with a 30" inch barrel that measures 50.5 inches, it hangs out of a 52" soft gun case far enough that I can't zip the case up.

The case doesn't have to be incredibly cheap, I just don't want to buy a $200+ pelican case that weighs as much as I do.

I would just get a hard case and transport the shotgun disassembled.

No personal knowledge here, but a quick search turned up these two options. I have little doubt about the quality and reliability of Beretta and Amazon. The other one...I have no idea.

How about a soft case with separate compartments.
One for the barrel and the other for the rest of the gun.
I have one and it works just fine and didn't cost much more than a regular ole' soft case.
It's only slightly longer than the barrel.

Breaking down the gun & using a hard case is definitely a option. But I'm also intrigued by the link jmhyer provided. Did a fast Google search, American made, they also make gear for wildland firefighters. Found this blog review:

No personal experience ofc, but enough for me to gamble $34, on the standard grade case.

I've never seen a two piece soft case, but I did just order the Battle Lake case, hopefully I'll have it soon

I use several of the musket cases from Unique Cases. They are very well padded, durable and reasonably priced. Great folks.
