The Crusaders did not come with original boxes. I found these on Amazon $59 is a great deal for a locking wood glass case for handguns. The problem, green felt over foam that does not secure the gun. Pluck foam to the rescue! Add some spray glue, red felt, and a $10 brass name plate and you have a custom case that I think looks better than the original (second & 3rd pics) I think it looks pretty good!IMG_1951.JPGImage Enlarger

A member messaged me to ask exactly what kind of pluck foam I use. Guess I should have been specific. Here is a pic. It's Kaizen fast cap 57 MM thick. You can also buy it in 57mm, 30mm, 20mm depending on what you're using it for. This stuff is different from other pluck foam. IMG_1952.JPGImage Enlarger

You can order the name plates on amazon. THey were around $10 each. When you order them you enter what you want the name plate to say. Very easy you pic a type of lettering, you get three lines to fill in. You also pick different backings (sticky tape, screw, ect) It takes about 2 weeks to be delivered. This is the same place I git the name tags for the wall of fame. The plastic ones are only $4 each!
