French vs. English Style Casing
French-Style Casing --- where all the cased components---barrels, action and accessories are fitted into shaped compartments with no space around them. Nothing much may be added; Removing anything would be rather obvious.
English-Style Casing --- where all the cased components are secured into more open box-like compartments---the barrels and action secured well enough, but the accessories liable to moving around a bit. A little room available for a few extra bits & pieces.
