Default Shipping crates for Garands

I had some time on my hands so I made some shipping crates for my Garands. I made 4 different kinds, the grey one I tried to make look like an older one that had been used. I put on rusty hinges and lock (after the picture was taken), and beat up the box a bit, rounded the edges. After I stained it I wasn't pleased with the outcome, it didn't look distressed enough. So I'm doing another one and this time I'll beat the crap out of it. Did one where the rifle lies flat, the other 2 where fashioned after the British sniper rifle case. One is a bit wider, the other one I made so it was only as wide as the rifle itself, worked out great!

On the one where its lying on its side orient the rifle in the other direction, so its not upside down, and it would make a better display.

I did it that way on purpose, when you open the lid your right hand will go on the pistol grip, lifting it up your left hand goes on the forearm and you can shoulder the rifle without switching hands or moving the rifle cross body. Great, if your a right handed person, not so great if your a lefty.
