Moisture control for a sealed gun case.
« on: September 13, 2017, 08:58:43 PM »
I am putting together a weather proof case for my Scorpion, and I have just about everything right for it. However, I don't want to open it up to find rust if I have to store it for extended periods. Is there a good decassent option that wont liquify, gel, or melt, but draw moisture even in a molded foam sealed case that might see temperature extremes?

A silicone gun stock might give you that peace of mind.

you just need a good desiccant pack, one of the re-usable kind you put in your oven to dry out once the blue beads turn pink. I have a couple starlight cases I keep things sealed in with those and I've been through hurricanes and 200% humidity  :-X

You might consider the music industry, especially the violin family. The need to regulate moisture around a fragile, wooden instrument has surely produced something that would also work well for your purpose.

Interesting thought. Looking it up, it seems like a lot of that industry have humidifier products to add moisture too.

Looks like blue Packs or zerust will work fine. Ill go that route.

Thank you all.

This is what I use in Florida works great.
