The discussion of the Alien series of films and the props used in them is the aim, but if it's got Big Bugs and Big Guns, then they are welcome too!

Found this online:

Would such a box be a bad idea for the mg56a smart gun?

Not sure the USCM have that big a connection to the Nazis but if it works it works ;) ;)

I think someone has made a crate for their smarty but I can’t remember who it was.

My own M56 ended up several inches longer than the stock MG42, so I am pretty sure (mine anyway) would not fit. I ended up using a snow board carry bag for transporting it.

I have a Matsuo M56, which breaks down into two pieces. I bought one of these and use it for transport:

There is enough room in there for the gun and stabilizer arm. I have a separate container I carry the armor in.

Second that! Both size vise and for the used label I would not reccomand using this box.
Using a wodden box with the right dimensions as such (apart from the weight) would work.

It's Matt [Crashdown] I beleive the crate is custom made with mounts inside to support the smartgun, and UKCM markings on the outside. It even has wheels at one end!

US/UKCM markings on a similar case would be fine, but yeah... I'd have issues if anyone showed up to a con with Nazi insignia anywhere on their gear!
We take great pride in being an inclusive group; and homophobia, transphobia, racism and bigotry are emphatically not welcome; display of nazi iconography could very easily give the wrong idea, even if there's no deliberate ill-intent.

Shape-wise, that crate design would be fine, assuming your muzzle and stock were removable - My smartgun being built on a de-ac, both unscrew just as with the original gun.
I usually just use a bass-case to carry mine though. ( With straps round it, because I don't fully trust even 4 little clasps to keep it shut, given how bloody heavy it is! )

I've a Pelican 1770 for mine. It's a beast, but it is long enough, and has wheels too.
Bought it cheap without foam, which in hindsight was a mistake as sourcing foam is painful (and expensive).

I once made a custom foam insert for my pulse rifle; I misted the inside of the peli case ( knockoff ) with water, made a cardboard blank in the shape of my rifle and covered it in cling-film, sprayed some expanding foam into the dead space around it, and topped the lot off with a piece of weighted plywood.

Looked a bit rough but did the job well!
