Help!! My older 3 gun pistol box is no MORE!!!

I need to buy a 3 gun pistol box that is not that expensive but is of good quality for my bulls eye league I shoot in.. I have the Spotting scope mount that I can transfer to the new box and good shoulder straps. I see some boxes that are just about complete and others that need everything. I am a little short on cash. I did not expect this to go and I just finished paying off my lifetime NRA membership. I bought 3 new Wolff magazines for my Les Baer 45ACP bulls Eye 1911 with the optics mount. The magazines that I had were not strong enough that the spring would not hold the slide stop up to keep the slide back after the last shot. It was a PITA. I Always count my shots but during the timed and rapid fire it was not a big deal as you have time to pull the slide back and lock it open for the load command. Les did not put a rear sight cut out so you could put a racker on it. So you have to work around the sight mount. I also just bought an extra magazine for my Kimber 1911 in a commander size.
So I dropped about $650 on Magazines NRA Membership plus 2000 rounds of Precision Delta JHP 124 grain 9MM that's another $158.00 and I got two replacement polarized filters for my two Ultradot Red Dot sites and I am sure of a few other things I forgot today. If I do not find out any good information from you fine shooters I will probably drop $213.00 for the 3 gun Strong Case SRC-2008 Aluminum 3 Gun Pistol Box from Bullseye Pistol Gear. I have purchased from them before and have had good luck.
Thanks for any help you can provide
Proud Lifetime member of the NRA.

Check out Gun Ho pistol boxes

They run about $130 and up. Once you open the link below, look on the left column tabs for Storage Box and clikc on Gun Ho....

I went shopping hard for a bullseye case 5 months ago;

I went to Champion Shooters where I buy ammo and other bullseye supplies, here at;

Gun Ho is out of business now

Gil Hebard also went out of business a few years ago--all he makes now are the spotting scope holders.

Pachmyer stopped making them years ago,

Champions has the Sport Lock (low end) and the high end alum. cases by Competitor.

I bought the Sport Lock--it's lighter even though it doesn't look so on the specs (maybe a typo)

At first I thought it was too cheap, but decided to keep it. I added some clear tube over the alum. rod the guns rest on in the foam holder, and a small bungee over it, and am very happy now

I have a never-used 4-gun strong box that is a bit too big for me. I would trade it for a 3-gun regular sized box if you are interested.
