Sig OEM Grey pistol box Question
I have some OEM Boxes that the fitted foam is disintegrating. I called Sig C/S and they had no solution. Does anybody have this problem? How do you replace the foam? Thanks

I have used Pelican Foam when the factory stuff turns to dust. I use pelican cases, totes, and crates for shipping electronic equipment and their foam is strong, durable, and easy to customize with a jig saw and razor knife. Here is site where we get new foam to convert a case for a different piece of equipment.

hi-power man
I purchased foam sheet from JoAnn Fabric. They had a couple different densities. Go for the highest. I chose 1" thick, easy to put one layer in cut the next and lay it in. The lady at the measuring table pointed out some spray adhesive that allegedly worked well to glue the foam sheets together. I didn't glue anything, might want to change it later.

JoAnn's uses an electric food carving knife, which gave very good cuts. I used one for the big squares but used a steel rule and razor knife for the cut outs.

High capacity is not an acceptable substitute for good marksmanship.

Thanks, Dave. I've looked at Pelican and I had hoped to buy something premade. It seems like I can't be the only one that has this problem.

Thanks, P35 I'll look into that.
