Good question, I've been hoping some one had some "how to" pics they would post on getting the pattern on the foam and cutting it.

The next question applies to mine, "Where can you get new foam to replace the not so neatly cut stuff?".

I used a very sharp knife and it cut it but it's hard to keep it perfectly straight and neat..................................DJ

Sako TRG 22/42 and Pelican goes really really great with it. I do not have a Pelican case, but got a drag bag (due to my budget). I saw a picture with pelican at sniperhide. I will link it.

I think sharp long razor is another good way to do it

Believe it or not, the BEST thing at cutting smooth lines on that stuff is an electric knife. Works GREAT.

If you dont have one, I like to use a knife that has a sharpe cutting edge like on some steak knives where the edge is not smooth, but very sharp. You can use a sawing motion and it works very well.

I flip the foam over and draw on the BACK side, then cut. That way the ugly marker line doesn't show when in the case.

Thanx NutFinn. All I can say is "wow".

The home made cutter is cool, but those toys make me green with envy.

Oh, that is not my setup :-D
I pasted someone's TRG-42 w/ pelican from sniperhide for the poster to see. However, i do have 22 model without pelican. :(

Here's mine
