In keeping with the canvas look, I decided to go with the this soft case instead of the previously reviewed one. The way I saw it, if it failed to work with the Mosin Nagant M44, then it would be a new home for the Mossberg 590A1…
So, does it fit?
Does a grossly overweight trucker fit in a Speedo?
This case is snug over the bayonet hinge. Doable, and perhaps the lack of wiggle room would work well when it comes to performing the “get inna woods” part of the readers’ emergency plan, but stripping off the case in a jiffy would be akin to, as George Carlin once put it, “getting wet leather leggings off of someone who is kicking.”
Even for the 590A1, it would be much easier to rack a hasty shell and panic perforate the end of the case than to tug the snag-hazard of a bayonet lug clear of the very nicely quilted interior.
All in all, very good case, terrific customer service (broken zipper was covered by the lifetime warranty and the whole process for replacement/repair was quick), and definitely a keeper. For the fans of M44’s, heed the warning and go with the larger case… which, four years later, has worked extremely well.

I use the 52 inch for my 32 inch bbl Beretta O/E shotgun. It is a really well made and attractive storage and carry case. It is padded nicely and has a really robust brass zipper that seems to be the fail point for many shotgun cases that I have owned in the past. I feel the pouch if a bit tight when new, but have an external bag for chokes and such so no big. deal. I highly recommend.

I’ve had a lot of gun cases over the years, most purchased from sporting good retail stores. All have been of reasonably decent quality….EXCEPT, for the zippers. Nylon self healing zippers only self heal for just so long before they don’t. My two oldest cases, one, a Kolpin I purchased over 50 years ago is still going strong. Another, a Weathershield, I purchased over 30 years ago….still going strong. I realized the thing they both have in common is…brass zippers. I hate our throw away society. I was determined to purchase a quality gun case with a brass zipper. I looked at Orvis. Over the years I’ve purchased a lot of stuff from them. Quality stuff, but their case is $198, with a nylon zipper. Scratched off my list. LL Bean also has good quality, but again, their case for $129 has a nylon zipper.
Fortunately I remembered Boyt because I have one of their hunting vests from 20 years ago and a belt cargo hunting utility bag (I forget exactly what it’s called) Both are well built for a reasonable price. So here I am with my Alaskan shotgun case. Built very nice with seemingly very good materials and…..a BRASS zipper, for less cost than either the Orvis or the LLBean. Now I know nothing lasts forever and perhaps I’ll be disappointed if/when the brass zipper fails, but the case has a lifetime warranty that hopefully I won’t need to use.
This is a preliminary review since I just got the case today (a Christmas present to myself :-)), but my inspection reveals to me a high quality case, well built with good materials. I’m delighted with what I see and am optimistic that it will provide me with many,many years of reliable service.

I recently bought the Alaskan Series shotgun case and I’m amazed at the quality of this case. Its like the older canvas cases I have that are approaching 30 years old. I love the case and the protection it gives my Browning Citori. The pocket and choke holders are an added bonus. Great product!!
