    Posted: September/12/2019 at 13:33
I have the back skin of a cape buffalo I shot several years ago. It is already tanned and stained the color I want.

I need a recommendation on a fantastic firm that makes high quality custom soft rifle cases. Google provides me with companies that will do the work, but their designs are garbage.

Anyone have a good experience doing this?

Many thanks.

Try this organization.  I have a friend who had a custom rifle case made and was able to define parameters.

I have another buddy who is an outfitter, currently in Africa hunting, I have queried.  He has great contacts.  Should hear from him in a day or two.

You can try Negrini, I just spoke to customer service and was told that that this is a possibility and the foreseen issue is probably shipping cost. The hide would need to be shipped to Italy, custom made and the sent back to the USA.

My friend responded.  American company:  http://www.whittenguncases.com

Said he is fantastic, depending on time of year may have some lead time.

If his customers choose to not have their custom leather goods made in Africa (says the work there is superior) this is his recommendation.

I appreciate the links. I'm not seeing exactly what I want. I'll keep pecking around.

What exactly are you looking for and what is your budget? I may be able to help. I do quality  leathercraft routinely and am an avid hunter. I probably wouldn’t want to take the project on until after the New Years though. Hunting season opens up this weekend and to be honest it would just be shelved until the freezer is full.
