Specialized Historical Long Gun Storage
A museum dedicated to collecting, preserving, and showcasing the history and culture of their county found their collection growing quickly. With the move to a new and larger facility, museum staff wanted to make sure to use their space most efficiently to accommodate their collections and preservation efforts. A unique challenge was their historic rifle collection, for which they installed a specialized museum cabinet and air tight weapons storage system for storing long guns. Specially engineered museum cabinets and other solutions for storage challenges like this one are also available in Billings, Missoula, Great Falls, Bozeman, Butte, and throughout the state of Montana.

Air Tight Weapons Cabinet Pull-Out Racks
The museum was able to meet most of their storage needs with standard museum cabinets, exhibit cases, and shelving, but their rifle collection required something new. Staff needed to store their 22 rifles in a locking cabinet that would serve multiple uses by protecting the rifles while conserving space in the collections area, all while remaining within budget constraints. With these constraints, it was imperative that the system was both affordable and functional.
Working with an engineering and manufacturing team, they designed a pull-out long gun weapons cabinet. The pull-out units are mounted on heavy-duty slides and fully extend to allow full accessibility to stored weapons. A smooth slide system was included to minimize vibrations that could jostle the artifacts. The air tight system also assists with preservation and prevents any damage to the rifles from dirt, dust, and other environmental factors.
The system can also accommodate 36 rifles, allowing the museum plenty of room to expand its collection without taking up more of their valuable space. There's also plenty of open space at the top of the cabinet that can be configured with drawers, trays, shelves, or hanging rods in the future.
