Looking for a source for a short well made case for my Western Arms 1873 carbine in 44-40

All I can find are assault type cases with 15 mag pockets

Thanks for your help

Marvin Huey. Gorgeous, but you'll need very deep pockets.

I use a reproduction canvas sleeve meant for an M1 carbine to haul around an 1892 reproduction. It's not period correct but it came with an M1 carbine and is on hand. I can't think of the name but I drive past the shop on occasion so I really didn't need to remember. The maker is in White Bear Lake, MN and does sell quite a few cases so he should be easy to find on the Internet.
