The big green is announcing a partnership with Pelican Products for branded cases and other accessories. Unfortunately at the time of the press release, there are no photos of examples. But they are slated for release by Q4 this year. It would appear that the cases will also feature pre-cut foam for specific products.
I have always been a fan of Pelican cases. I travel with firearms quite a lot and rely on them to protect my investments from disgruntled baggage handlers and the inevitable drops and spills that things are bound to take.
I also like them because I can lock all four of the lock grommets and know that without a sawz-all or explosives the contents will be protected from someone opening the case to steal something. The only downside to Pelican cases is storing them while not in use, they are big cases and take up a lot of room.
Madison, NC – Remington Outdoor Company (“ROC”), America’s oldest firearms and ammunition manufacturer with brands including Remington, AAC, Bushmaster and DPMS, among others, today announced a strategic partnership with Pelican Products, Inc., the global leader in high performance case solutions and advanced portable lighting systems.
