    Very cool! That's the exact same case as mine. It works perfectly.

    I ordered the same case from EBAY. Not as cheap as Walmart, but our stores don't carry them and they're out of stock on-line. I'm going to try to fit the original white foam from the Latrax box. Might have to trim an edge a little, but I bet it fits.

    Egg zactly. Drop in, or some fussing required? And that's a Plano Protector 4-Pistol, right?

    Removed middle insert and dropped it right in. Got it from Amazon (it was 11.99US at the time, but is now 14.99US there).

    Wow, I got my Alias about a week ago just as I going back on the road. Took it with me and flew it around the truck stop for a while for the first time yesterday. I was thinking about trying to find a case for it and here it is. Thank you.

    Nice case but you kinda missed on the convenience portion.
    Not to mention you now have to open 2 cases to get to your alias

    I would say take the alias and the Styrofoam out of the original box and put them both in your new box. Saves time, and gives you space for more stuff.

    My understanding is that the photo is displaying a starting point, not a finished product.
    Alt-248 on the number pad =
