    I bought a 54"drag bag case from mid way about a year ago. It is a nice case and well paded with a lot of storage. As for a hard case that long, look at the pelican 1770. I dont know of any long double gun hard cases, someone must make them. Also cabeleas has the long aluminum cases.

    Your welcome. I already had a 48" bag,fits normal rifles. I bought te long one for one rifle that was just a little to long for other cases. I just hope it will be long enough for the 338AM I have on order from Kirby!

    Thank you both for posting this. I too am in the market for the same item for my .270 AI with 30" barrel + MB, it's just shy of 55". Before this post, I was leaning towards http://www.prone2success.com/pouchside.jpg with hesitation as it does not seem to have the sufficient padding for the required protection during transport to/from range/hunting area.

    Looks like Midway's (MidwayUSA Sniper Drag Bag Scoped Rifle Case) is the ticket!

    Thanks again!

    I have the Midway bag and it is a pretty nice bag. If you hold it by the carrying handle the case tips all the way forward and the barrel wants to drag on the ground. I usually just use the shoulder strap to eliminate the problem.

    For long cases these look nice too.

    I have both a TacForce Drag Bag and one of the Midway bags. The midway bag is nice, but feels cheap compared to the TacForce. The weave on the fabric isn't as tight, the zippers don't feel as solid, and the stitching isn't as nice.

    Both will work, but when if I'm riding in on a bike or a long hike in I use the TacForce bag.

    New tactical bag arrived from midway, 56"works perfect. now have a place to store my bore cleaning rod also. this is a nice bag and very pleased. think i spent around $97.00 with shipping to my house. bought the brown bag and looks good. lots of storage if necessary, no complaints. will check into the other tactical bag mentioned and if of better quality it must be very nice. adios amigo's!
