I sort of wish i didn't click on the link,says they are in stock locally......

Those look like they are built similar to a pelican case, i wonder if they are as good or close enough? For less than half the price they look just as nice in the picture.

In truth, Harbor Freight is famous for NON-high quality goods.

The guys on the car forum call it Hazard Fraught Tools. 🤣

Those cases are decent. We have a couple technicians at work that use them for toolboxes.
They're decent but definitely not Pelican quality,
I'm also firmly in the "Harbor Freight sells junk" camp. I don't shop there.

I agree they mostly sell junk but if you look around you can find a few decent things there. I was hoping this might be one of them.

Speed they use gun cases as tool boxes?

I have a whole bunch of these cases for my pistols. They are pretty tough. The only catch is sometimes they only have one thick pluck foam inside instead of two layers. Better go in the store and look to make sure which one you get. I have Gen I and Gen II Plano All Weather Tactical cases for my rifles and these are every bit as tough as those.

If you do get one that just has the one thick insert, it’s not the end of the world. Pluck out for your rifle and pull it out in one piece and split it down the middle long ways with a razor knife and put the top half back in the hole to pad the bottom of the case.

An electric carving knife will work much better than a razor knife.

Ruger Precision 6.5 with a 24” barrel and strike Eagle 5-25x56 with sun shade. Fits perfectly without having to screw with my stock setup. The padding in the lid is deep so it closes without bulging with the bolt in it. Good thing too because the turrets on the side of the scope stick out a bit as well.
