Default New Style gun cases latches fall off REAL Easy

Thank you for the two Winchester Garands, but I wanted to give you a heads up on the new black cases. The latches fall off real easily on both of them. The Green ones I got back in 2019 don't do this. Now these cases are much nicer, but you may want to contact the supplier about the design of the latches.

They will snap back on, but opening the case on a hard floor one or two will fall off again.

Thank You.

I was happy when they showed up not cracked from the op rod handle.

I have another brand of hard case that does this. I learn to live with it but; before I got my head right, I lost one of the latches. It is replaced now. This post is a good heads up. Too bad, but; it should not be a deal breaker to get some good use. Obviously for shipping, stronger is better and you got that.

I am one who was surprised how nice the old brown cases were. I was expecting foam and cardboard. I am now kinda surprised squared, in a good way. I will watch out for the latches.
