honestly i like the second case better but i have a feeling the first case will be more of a collector's item later one. the second issue is a shorter version of the mr556/mr762 tactical soft case...that's why i like that more.
Yes, it’s been pointed out that they swapped cases a while ago, maybe starting this year in the 2000 range? Tony would know when. The cases are a matter of personal taste. Some like the older case better because it’s smaller and lighter, some like the newer case because it has more pockets and other places to hold mags, ammo, and accessories. The older case would only be worth a premium to someone who really wanted it.
It's certainly no foam case, but you could definitely fit all that if you didn't mind them rattling around. There is a second zippered compartment with nearly the same amount of area. Then 3 gigantic cargo pockets on top. I wish it had a little more padding on the outer compartments but I suppose you could supplement some tool liner.
Not to sound snarky but, I'd like to see this 3rd case people speak of. I have a 2400 SN, a 2500 SN, and a 3900 SN... First 2 are the small case and last is current case. All others I have seen below 2400 are then small and current started somewhere between my 25xx and 39xx. Could someone please show me a picture of the only case that is NOT posted in this thread? It would be nice to see what it looks like.
