MTM Molded Products has been making products for the shooting enthusiast since 1968 under the name MTM Case-Gard. This family owned company out of Dayton, Ohio may be known to some of you reading this if you are an ammo reloader in addition to being an airgun aficionado. MTM is known for their line of ammo storage and carrying boxes but that is only part of what they do. Case-in-point is this nifty Shooting Range Box that can hold all the accoutrements you might carry around in your range bag as well as doubling as a range maintenance center. The polypropylene box measures 25”x11.5”x8.75” and breaks apart into a shallow upper tray having a sturdy translucent lid and a beefy fold-down handle, and a deep lower box that converts into the long gun stand for the maintenance chores. Inside the top portion are 2 small removable trays, plus a total of 18 compartments for holding everything you might need to clean your gun or for basic field maintenance. Another nice touch in this kit is a removable Jag and Brush Gauge so the user can make certain they are using exactly the correct size jag or brush when preparing to clean a barrel. For airgunners shooting the most common calibers of .177 & .22 the gauge may not necessarily get a lot of use, but if you are also involved with powder-actuated firearms across multiple calibers, this little gauge could come in very handy.
The bottom portion stores two support arms/forks and has recesses molded into each end that the forks are inserted into. These forks have over-molded soft rubber inserts that securely hold a long gun or shotgun to facilitate maintenance procedures without danger of marring the finish. There is plenty of room for carrying bottles or cans of your cleaning products as well as larger items. The support forks sport several “branches” which come in handy for keeping the long cleaning rods up off the bench top when they aren’t actually being used inside a barrel. The length of the base is adequate to provide a stable platform for just about any long gun. You can see from the accompanying photos that it worked quite well for cleaning a break-barrel air rifle by situating the unit near the edge of the table.
It’s an American made product that is a good value at an MSRP of $49.95. MTM Case-Gard products come with a 5 year guarantee and the Shooting Range Box is available in Forest Green or Red.
Speaking earlier about ammo carrying boxes, the company makes small cases they refer to as “ammo pouches” that clip to the belt. These molded pouches are perfect for dumping a tin of pellets into before heading out on a shooting session with your favorite airgun.
