backpack for carrying a long rifle

who makes a backpack that will carry a long rifle, 34" barrel plus brake, 56" total length, does anything eberlestock make work? or would my best bet be a 60" drag bag? thanks

My wife modified the scabbard on my Eberlestock by lengthening the bottom of it about 6" for my Edge. Works great and you'd never know it had been altered.

I use a Stryker 60" drag bag. Mine has a 32" barrel and is 54" long.

I got mine from LG-Outdoors for $116. With a dealer account Grafs has them for $108.

The gunslinger 2 will hold up to a 60 in rifle, and they are awesome. You can buy them on longrangehunting

Eberlestock packs are awsome, I havent had too many packs but I dont see myself getting another anytime soon. I have the J107 dragonfly, but I dont think that It would handle a 60" rifle (but others will).
