Dear community,

 

I look for a plan of foam’s layout for pistol-pack 715.

 

I got my pack in the original case, with the original case in decay – it is gone by now.

I have the late MONSON, Mass production pack – with the blue-greenish foam, no yellow inlay and the black case (see below)

 

Therefor I ask if anyone has prints (digital, .pdf or paper) so I can get the foam cut

Yellow Fabric stock is posted here in the forum.    I think I still have the cardboard pattern trace of the factory American Tourister 44mag Pistol Pac case which is a bigger case than the Small frame 15-2 or 715 Brown Case.  Sound's like you already have the replacement foam?

Hi Scout728,

 

thanks for your reply. Unfortunately I have no foam yet. I need to order it and get it cut. And as everything today is digitalised, I need to send them prints of the cut outs, with dimensions.

 

My foam looked unfortunately disintegrateing (hope pictures uploaded this time).

As far as I my research is correct, my PistolPack 715, black case, must be one of the last before Monson-Facility closure - with all ins imperfections included.

I thik that the cases were all from American Tourister, but only the cutouts were "bit" different

Need pic of latches to determine case Mnfctr; Samosonite or AT

Why not DIY?   Order new (either cut down to size or precut size)   Layout pistol parts arrangement, trace with sharpie, and cut with either razorblade on electric knife.   Take cutouts, cut to 1/2-3/4 thickness and re-insert into hole.   turn foam over and glue modified cutouts back onto foam insert. 

FOAM:   Take interior measurements of case.   Go to Pelican case website...(they have best foam) find case with identical measurements, and order replacement foam.

I use Harbor Freight replacement foam, although it has drawbacks:   It's pick-n-pull, but that's okay because I cover it with fabric.

Here's one of my DIY on a1983 Hunter Pac that had the same Blue Foam in Factory AT case:

Very nice. That blue foam turns to goo eventually. Nasty stuff but the AT case with the swivel latches is my favorite.
