Just a Quick Update on my PLANO Case (With the Pluck Foam). I returned the 42", and just got in the 36" version of this case today. It has a Yellow Handle and Looks Cool.

The 36" is SO MUCH better in terms of size. The 42" was bulky and those 6 inches really made a difference (That's what SHE said!)

I haven't mapped out the location or done the plucking yet, but it's basically just like plucking a chicken. If you've plucked one chicken, you've plucked them all!

The 36" cost me MORE than the 42" Case, but for storage and packing up your M&P Sport II, this is so much better. For the money ($57.98 + tax), I can't see you getting any better of a case than this one, and the nice feature is it ends up being custom exactly how you like it.

Here is the Link, and I also saw you can buy this from SAM'S Club if you're a member, but I am not.

I sincerely implore you to not store your rifle in that case. That case is made for transporting your rifle. Not storage.

Storing Guns in a Case with "Open Cell" Foam can lead to Rust/Corrosion [Archive] - Maryland Shooters

There are a lot more of these. Take the advice of someone that's been around firearms for over 55 years. Foam rubber cases hold moisture against your gun and it will make anything rust that can rust.

If you didn't see in this thread he has a brand new safe that was just professionally installed. I believe the case is for transport.

Thumbs up

I see a post of mine has disappeared.
TMPB, do as CJ suggests and don't store your rifle in that case. Unless, you do as I had done once before. I had a case similar to that one that I would store one of my RUGER 10/22's in. But, I would spray a light coat of WD-40 on the foam about once a month. It did two things; prevented rust, and kept a light oil residue on the rifle. That was one of those tips that my German grandfather taught me.

Yes I know about the safe. Hopefully he keeps the rifle in there for storage. My reason for posting was what he said about the case. He said, "The 36" cost me MORE than the 42" Case, but for storage and packing up your M&P Sport II." Of course packing up your rifle is the reason for cases like the Plano but not storage as he suggested. I'm just trying to do the guy a favor and help him understand how fast rust can attack a gun stored in a foam rubber case.

I would not use wd-40 on any gun, with all do respect to your Grandfather. Look at the MSDS for WD-40 and you will see that WD-40 does not contain a lot of oil. It is only about 25% petro oil IIRC.

https://wd40.com/files/pdf/msds-wd482671453.pdf

It might be ok for some cleaning. It would be ok as a lubricant if nothing else was available but it is not good for long term storage because it evaporates and gums up when left on or in something. It is a water disperser, WD, and it will dry sometimed leaving a film or build up on guns.

There are better products for long-term protection and storage of firearms and there are certainly better cleaners and lubricants so there is no need to ever use it IMHO.

I've seen guns so gummed up from WD-40 the bolt wouldn't slide. I've seen people spray a can of that stuff in their gun when they went shooting. Their gun would get sticky and not function right so they would spray some more WD. Meanwhile, my totally dry rifle never missed a beat. I never even lubed my SKS for years. I considered it a throwaway gun because of the price I paid for it. But the thing just wouldn't die. I've since had it apart and there are no signs of metal on metal wear anyplace. Of course it was built with sloppy tolerances which makes me wonder if the parts ever actually touch each other.

I run all of my guns with minimal oil. Unless there is a problem I won't put oil in an action except for maybe a single drop worked over the entire action. Oil catches gun powder residue and creates more problems than it solves at times. And WD is by far the worst I've seen for this. I learned that lesson long ago on my bicycle. The gears had so much gunk built up in them they wouldn't shift. I cleaned them out (finally) and used a different lube and never had another problem.
