With the development and expansion of industries and activities which involve the use, transportation or
storage of valuable and expensive equipment there has been a growing need for an effective and reliable
system that could provide this degree of protection.
When it comes to the firearms industry there is also a fourth factor that corroborates the need of a hard
case: the security. Whether it is for travel for a match or tactical training away from home, for staying
overnight in a hotel, or simply for raising the level of security of a truck gun the implementation of a tool
such as a hard case could mean the difference between a gun in the hands of a good guy and a gun in the
hands of a bad guy.
This contemporary firearm training [nomad] lifestyle that involves a much more dynamic and mobile
approach to tactical training, in which users often times move domestically in the US requires a high degree
of protection, security and practicality. A tool such as a high quality hard case becomes almost as a "mobile
Because of the extremely high quality standards, Explorer cases are able to sustain the shift of action from
an everyday urbanistic approach of protection from iniquitous acts to the conventional protective purpose
from the elements out in the field; which is the actual origin of this type of case.
Depending on type of use, time of exposure and other key climatic factors, the field can be an extremely
demanding environment to which only very few quality-focused cases can withstand.
The gasket's design is usually a noticeable failure point for water-tightness; in order to overcome this
possible issue, Explorer, has focused on the manufacturing process rather than the design itself. Instead of
utilizing the ubiquitous rubber-polymer tube of which the connection point could potentially be the weakest
point, they have implemented a system that extrudes a foam-like material directly into the gasket housing.
This innovative manufacturing process has proven to be effective and reliable.
The IP67 waterproofness rating and the fact that it is retained without compromise throughout the lifespan
of the case is directly related to the ruggedness of this gasket design, compared also to the weaker hollowtube
Temperatures play a key role in the longevity of a gasket or sealant and Explorer does not utilize rubberized
material O-ring or glue. As the temperature is decreased the rubber passes from a soft (easily deformed) and
elastic state to a more rigid state and finally to a brittle glasslike condition. On the other hand glues tend to
a detachment process when reaching higher temperatures, as well as freeze towards glaciation.
The water tightness is achieved also through an intrinsically mechanical strength of the closure design. The
latches are sized to obtain a strong, secure and constant pressure along the perimeter between the case and
the lid. Despite this the opening and closing process are facilitated mainly by two factors: the double-action
of the mechanism (with two pivotal points) and the relatively large surface of the latch.
The hinges mechanism is reliable and the action is smooth and repeatable.
The hinges are designed to optimize the efficiency on the field by opening up to 90Deg and by staying open
without the necessity of two-hand manipulation. Unlike other products on the market, the Explorer case
does not tip over when opened empty...
Differently from similar products on the market, once closed, the Explorer cases latches do not make any
[annoying] noise, which (even though it is not carried into direct combat action) is still, in our opinion,
inappropriate in a "Tactical" weapons case.
One aspect in which we really wanted to focus was the tolerances between the parts of the assembly. The
very high grade of precision in the dimensions of the lid, main case and metal rod protects the mechanism
from any external agent, even after prolonged use in dusty and sandy environments.
The smoothness of the hinge mechanism is usually a substantial differentiation between high quality cases
and less quality after some use in the field.
The case is provided with three handles, a primary, larger, and two secondary smaller. The handles are well
built and very durable, the injection-molded polymer is tough and does not bend under the heavy load of
firearms. Explorer produces all hinges with extreme accuracy; even after prolonged field use, with the case
exposed to the elements, the movement of the handle is solid and repeatable, and the metal rod does not
show weak points or corrosion. Even after the testing and evaluation process the handles stay in position,
which is an explicit indication of quality.
The two secondary handles locate at the exact opposite side from each other provide a very comfortable
two-men carrying solution, especially with heavier weapon systems. Of course with the 9413 one could only
fit enough items, but with the larger models this feature could be vital.
In the central portion of the case, between the primary-handle attaching points, are located the air valve
and the luggage nametag. The manual pressure release valve is a key component for operation with variable
barometric excursion. The valve is designed with an internal stop ring, for preventing the user from
overrunning it and completely extract it.
The nametag is protected by a translucent polymer shield and is only accessible when the case is open.
Four latches are located relatively to the four hinges of the case. Next to the four latches are positioned four
padlock-able points, and with two of them being metal plated there is the possibility to safely lock the case
with either standard padlocks or TSA approved ones. Explorer offers three different padlocks, a combination,
a heavy-duty brass with key and TSA-approved.
The combination padlock is designed with the chamfering of the edge inherently constructed in the
dimensions, covering the entire pin (for enhanced security from tools such as bolt cutters) as well as tightly
securing it and preventing it from swinging, which may be causing noise.
The case is provided with ball bearing wheels that enable a more comfortable and effective transportation
of heavier items. The wheels are exposed enough to allow the case to be pulled from a wide range of angles,
but the overall dimensional extremities still allow the case to stand in the upright position very solidly, even
when loaded with firearms. The wheels are designed to be utilized also for pulling the case from a horizontal
surface with an extremely low angle; this provides a high level of mobility when loading or unloading
weapons from trucks of vehicles.
Even after carrying the case in all types of terrains for several months, the wheels spin smoothly and freely,
do not show any stress point or failure points, and are still very silent.
The foam insert set consist of a convoluted panel for the lid, two pre-cubed sections and a thin stabilizing
layer for the body. The pre-cubed foam allows for a high degree of customizability by the user and seems to
withstand weight and time.
As for the material utilized the main case sections are manufactured from an injection molded copolymer
Polypropylene compound, which seems to have a good balance between rigidity and elasticity, for maximum
toughness and protection. Throughout the heat of the summertime, the case has not shown any brittleness
from the extensive direct sunlight exposure.
On the bottom side of the case are located six rubberized feet for better stability both on surfaces and for
The Explorer Cases 15416 is the longest rifle hard case available on the market and is able to carry an assembled .50 caliber sniper rifle. Due to the construction process and the due to the properties of the copolymer polypropylene, the case is rigid and provides protection
along all axis of the content, despite the very generous dimensions.
Mechanical strength is one of the most important aspects with such a long case. In order to protect and maintain zero and POA/POI during transportation the case has to keep its rigidity without compromising transportability with excessive weight. The balance between ribbing and the polymer compound delivers a great result even with these dimensions.
The protective hard case is a vital element in equipment transportation, protection and storage. The very close relationship between hard cases and firearms revolves around the key concept of having the firearms stored and protected in order to be combat-effective when taken out and utilized, even with minimal preparation.
One of the advantages of these protective solutions is that environmental effects do not alter the status of firearm during transport or storage. In the past, due to technological limitations, the ability to stored assembled rifles was compromised in some instances; for
example, .50 BMG precision rifles or even sniper rifles with suppressors already attached (direct thread for example).
Wider Latches with Safe Button
The larger dimensions require a more secure locking and sealing system, hence the wider latches with the addition of a safe button. To ensure the maximum protection and sealing consistency the case features six latches, four on the longer edge and 1 per each side.
The four hinges are heavily reinforce and, despite the large dimension of the case, provide a smooth and unimpeded opening, even after being exposed to dusty or sandy environments. The case, when opened while empty, does not tip.
The 15416 case was designed specifically for platforms that are most likely going to be heavier; consequently, the carrying method needs to be effective for the user without
obstructing the operating procedures of the case. The dimension, position and build quality of the handles featured by Explorer Cases are functional and comfortable.
The inherent nature of this case is to efficiently carry weapon platforms that usually require disassembly or two man operation. The wheels of the 15416 are oversize and provide, in conjunction with the rigidity of the case, a very effective carrying solution on all sorts of terrain, despite the heavy load.
With the rising need of enhanced precision rifle on modern battlefields, the SOF community
is looking closely at the possible implementation of precision cartridges, like 6.5 Creedmoor
and .260 Remington, within an AR10 frame.
The need for precise fire from these platform requires and inherent higher degree of
precision within the entire package, from the sniper rifle itself to optics and mounting
To achieve reliability and consistency in precision the proper care and maintenance of these
platforms is key; the use of high quality and durable cases, for storage and transportation
solution, aids the operators in successfully fulfilling the mission with confidence in their equipment.
The 13513 case is able to protect a fully assembled AR-10 platform (or variant) with a barrel
up to 18″ with its accessories (suppressor, thermal/IR clip-on optics, laser devices and
