    After searching through the forums for a guide or at least a review I have found nothing on DIY or "ready-made" display cases or stands. So that leaves me to ask, Does anyone know of any good display cases for airsoft pistols or DIY options?

    What kind of display are you thinking of? Like, wall mounted? Standing with glass? A rudimentary stand? Here's what I do for mine:

    It's pretty bare right now because I've sold most of them, but it works and looks fairly professional.

    Look under "Pistol display stand" on ebay, they have a bunch of them starting at around $10.

    I was thinking of a "standing with glass" case as you mentioned thats more for my collections/ high end side arms. As for my day to day skirmish guns and high end rifles i would actually like something like what you have if you could list the materials im pretty sure i could whip something up real quick.

    Wow looking back at this thread, I misread the intent of this thread.
    For enclosures behind glass, the simplest, yet nicest I've seen was someone went to Ikea and purchased one of their entertainment sets and constructed a peg board within it. They then added Plexiglass doors, lights and so on. It turned out looking pretty good. Sadly I didn't take any pictures of it, mostly because he was using it to display random finds from his trips to other countries. But it was a great idea.

    For the glass, buster's spot on.

    For mine, it was

    Brown pegboard

    4 2x4s cut to size

    Painted,

    Then screwed to my wall.
