Koplin Gun Boot 6.0 - My rifle barrel is to long

I have a custom rifle that i just had built and due to barrel length of 32" (with muzzle break) it won't fit in the Koplin case. I called Koplin for any ideas and they had not and said they have no plans to make one to fit longer rifles.

Anyone drilled out the end with a 2" hole saw and added PVC pipe to the end???

Any and all ideas are welcome.

Paul

    I would think you are on track. Modify it, you might be able to glass a extension on, or try the pvc, with some mesh and something like bedding or JBWeld, then paint it black.

    A 2" hole saw some PVC Fitting and some plumbers epoxy putty and you can have a barrel as long as you want!!! Very Cool!!
