Topic tags/keywords: question

Ive been commissioned to build this box but cant talk my wife into letting me buy one so I can fit it precisely. So Im reaching out to see if anyone can point me to a site that has this information, or has built one or something similar. Thanks!

Probably the best way would be to go to a gunshop and ask to be able to measure or trace one. You can probably buy a pretty realistic toy one also that matches a real one pretty closely.

John, I am working on one right now. The guy gave me a trace pattern of his gun and I basically have made a box around it. Inside dimensions are 8 1/2 X 11. It’s not finished yet. He plans on using foam and laying a nice piece a material down. Will post it as soon as I’m done.
