Hi all,
I consider myself still a newbie, although being involved with shooting for a number of years.
I have 2 cabinets, approved, 5 footer for rifles and smaller one for BP pistols and ammo.
I have a need for an extra tall, say 70", cabinet, to keep BP rifles, they are sometimes really long.
What I found on internet is 1500mm tall or less.
Any ideas?
Your help would be appreciated.

Brattonsound would probably make one for you

These are slightly taller than Brattonsound. I have the II-6. The top shelf is removable.

Drill a hole in the roof of your cabinet and let the barrel poke though.
Of buy some sheet metal and make one yourself. 70' is huge!

I like the one with bayonet :)

I have an Parker Hale 3 band Enfield which is 54" and a bit, I have to take all out to be able to wiggle that one diagonally out, pain in the .....
And some others are longer, Brown Bess at 58", Springfield and Pennsylvania at 56".
Why ask for 70", I saw one some time ago, one with removable shelves, should had a go at it. I was hoping somebody might know the maker.
Modern stuff is so much easier to handle.
Brattonsound have nothing longer than 5' in catalogue.
Westlanders are 1" taller, probably not enough.
Thanks for replies.
Ayosha
