Customer wanted stability and portability. From carrying case to finished assembly takes 4 minutes. Pic #6 shows happy customer. So happy that he ordered another one of these AND 3 other types. Maybe I’ll post the others after they’re built. I understand all these displays will be at the November 2011 Tulsa Gun Show.

Carrying case is 33 1/2” x 15 1/2” and assembled display is 32” wide x 19 1/2” deep x 24” high.
Shelves are 1/2” ply with 3/4” banding. The 1/4” extra hangs below shelf and fits over the ends of the left-to-right cross braces to prevent side-to-side play. The front banding locks over the front faces and the rear banding drops into notches cut into the front-to-back cross braces preventing front-to-back play. The faces are 1/4” Birch which is actually 3/16”. All other parts are 1/4” ply notched and slotted.

Customer wanted unfinished as he hasn’t decided what would look good; clear, stain, paint or fabric.

Had fun figuring out the engineering for this. LOL

Nice display and beautiful pistols.

Nice display stand. Love the ease to put together / take down and the portability.
