Ive got an email out to drake to see if i can get a replacement.
Sometimes the front corners of a vent rib can be pretty sharp and rip hell out of the inside of gun cases. I've had a couple of guns that did this in the past.
I have had my drake cases for three years now and haven't seen this.
So I was wondering why it happened to apex.
As I was putting my gun away the other day I realized how tight the drake case is , and I like that,
But because of that I always squeeze in on the top and bottom to make the opening bigger so the barrel doesn't rub hard all the way down
I had not even noticed I was doing that , but having a mechanical back ground I was always taught if something doesn't go smooth and easy don't force it so I automatically started doing this.
There is a Velcro strip that would allow you to adjust the interior clearance for your gun.
Sense I like my guns not to slide around in the case I never used it.
Also apex they make a patch tape for textiles like moms iron on to the knees of their kids jeans I would patch the inside of my case with that and then insert the gun more carefully.
