Re: Need gun case to fit scoped rifle with attached bipod

I just bought one from Dicks for my varmint rifle..My gun is 52" long exactly. Is a bit snug on length but not bad.

Its a soft case but has thin plywood (luaghn)spelling? on the outsides. Was originally 80 bucks but on sale for 49 now. I'll get the brand name tonight when I get home.

Len, I have Kolpin cases at the shop that I use. Will fit a 28" barrel with a smidge to spare. Plenty deep for scope and pod.

I still need to find that amish guy who makes these heavy custom canvas cases.

If I can get him to make us some XL cases to spec, this problem will be solved, even with the 30" braked guns.

I use a black hard case my wife got me from ChinaMart. My 26" scoped model 70 with bipod fits just fine in it with room to spare. 29.95.

Re: Need gun case to fit scoped rifle with attached bipod

My rifle no longer fits my original case also, so I was looking for another and decided to get a tactical drag bag from TacOps or Blackhawk. I handled the TacOps one the other day and I think it would be just the ticket. Very rugged and well made and it has a spot for a cleaning rod and many other spots for other gear.
It costs a few more bones than the other cases I was looking at but I'm starting to get real touchy about my rig and how I have it so I'm thinking go big on the case for my rifle. Then I know I'm good to go when I pull it out.

Re: Need gun case to fit scoped rifle with attached bipod

Len, you seem to have a very definite preference for a soft case, but thought I would chuck this in as well.
I made a case from solid 1 1/2"x 3/4"pine frame with ply wood attached as the outer cover. Both top and bottom halves are indentical. The interior is a foam base lining with eggshell foam cut to fit the shape of the rifle then glued as the next layer. (eggshell in Oz, don't know if it is the same in the US.) When the case is shut and latched, the rifle is held quite firmly in suspension as it were.
It seems to protect the rifle really well when in transport, and one does get a certain satisfaction from making something like this.
Cheers

I made one of those also. It weighs about 40 pounds.




It also makes a good reloading bench.
