The only Browning cases I have are for shotguns, they're gathering dust in the garage. I hate selling and shipping, so my son will probably throw them out someday.

The above "stitch handle" Airways case is circa 1969-72.

The first scope that I had on my 1968 was also a little Bushnell. Mine was a 3-8 Scopechief. Eventually, the adjustments went bad. Not a great scope-heavy crosshairs, which didn't stay centered when adjusted.
I did like the integral mount.
In the last 53 years, it's worn quite a few different scopes. I think the current one suits it best: a Leupold gloss VX-I 2-7rf special.

Ok, I thought it was hartmann, not an expert on these but it is good to know. Thanks for the info. The bushnell scope was on it when I got it. I think it was on it since new. The optics on it are nice and clear, but will see if it holds zero. If it works good I will keep it on there cause its compact and looks decent on the rifle. . I have yet to shoot it but plan on taking it to the range as soon as it cools down a little around here.

The only Tolex case I have seen for sale was $900, and that was 20 yrs ago.

Check if they're gathering mold or mildew as well. Better to sell than just throw out. When I sold off my hard cases, I just bought a few Boyt cases to use, and had enough left over to buy a nice gun.

I like selling and shipping. Probably like it too much, as perhaps I should have held onto a few special items, No matter, anything sold wasn't going to be used again, and I don't need stuff that just becomes decor or space taker uppers.
However, getting or making a box for a hard case, could be a bit of a pain.

Thanks Camster, this thread had motivated me to bring them inside. They interiors still look great. One's leather (or pleather?) and the one I like best has a dark green canvas (?) exterior with leather trim and brass corners.

Here's a case for my Browning SA-22 that I've had for many years. Don't remember where I got it, but I think in a trade somewhere. Can anybody help with a possible manufacturer for this case and any other interesting details...? I'm including a few photos and one is of a magnified "goat on a mountaintop" emblem on the top part of the lock plate (inside the red circle). This is the only identifying marks that I can fine on the case. Any help is appreciated..!

Kinda think it's a musical instrument case that's been refitted.

I've never seen a case where the lid overlaps the bottom section like that one.

I think it's an English gun case.

I emailed your pictures to my friend who is very knowledgeable about English gun cases. He thinks yours is European but is unfamiliar with the maker, he think the logo might be an ibex or chamois on the mountain top.

It's a very nice case and he said he wished he owned it.

Thanks everyone for the comments on my case...especially to Lawrence for taking the time to pass the photos on..! It is a nice old case, even though with my aging eyes, both of my Brownings have scopes mounted. Didn't know they made cases for rifles with scopes. I'll have to keep my eye out for one of those...appreciate everyone's time...this site is a hoot..!!!

Yes, The new issue auto 22 cases available from Browning now are made to take the rifle with the barrel mounted scope. Again, nice case you have there and may be worth some $$$. Looks like a high quality case . As they say,"Dont make em like that anymore"!!
