I had been looking for something inexpensive to use as a lockable transport container for long guns and as much as I would like a Pelican case, they're a little steep for me right now.

I found this on Amazon for $45.

I figured for $45, how bad can it be, right? So I ordered it and was very pleasantly surprised. It's plenty long enough for anything I own at 52 inches overall length. It can hold 2 long guns easily. It has interchangeable "cradles" that you can custom configure to hold what you need and some pretty stout velcro straps to secure everything in place. It has a chintzy tubular lock on one of the latches, but has two separate "tabs" for a padlock. Carry handle seems stout enough and overall it looks like it can take a beating. I will probably purchase a couple more.

what is the maximum inside height from top to bottom (ignoring the cradles)?

It looks to be about 10 inches top to bottom.

Wow, that is a great find.
What is your opinion of the case material? It is thick and strong? Base on the pictures, it look very sturdy.

Case is made of structural foam. It appears to be very sturdy. Along the lines of a truck bed tool box.
