Soft Case For AR

    I want a soft case like what Blackhawk makes for my (soon to be) new AR. It is a 20" rifle. I would also like to find something similar for my 18" 870 shotgun.

    I really like the Blackhawk stuff, but if I am going to spend 60 or more dollars on a case, it will be aluminum, which I already have.

    Does anyone make an affordable tactical style case for rifles and shotguns?

    I suggest the "Assault Rifle Cases" from ShootingSystems.

    They are built out of tough material and have more padding than the Eagle SR44-type cases.

    I would go with Eagle.
    Now i must say i'am a little one side on this, Eagle makes all there stuff here in my home state (Missorui) but the times i have order from they have been fast and all items where 100%
    The one time from Blackhawk was the last. after three months they still had not sent my order, i call them and they gave my the run about.

    Here is the link to Eagle's site http://www.eagleindustries.com

    Hey Zak, aren't those the same as the "Assault Systems" case? The one with the little Tommygun logo? Those cost upwards of $80, so I doubt that's in the price range of the original poster.

    However, before I read the "$60 is too expensive" part, I was going to suggest the Assault Systems case. I wouldn't buy a soft case that didn't have a pad to protect the rifle from the zipper. I've got a ding on the muzzle of my VEPR K from the zipper of an inferior case, that really burns me up. Refinishing a rifle costs a lot more than a good case, IMO.

    I didn't think about the zipper protection thing. Does anyone know if the Allen brand "tactical" bags have this type of protection?

    I am also looking at Bagmaster. I have on of their rang bags and love it. Plus it has a lifetime warranty.

    I already have some nice cases for my guns, I just want something more compact.

    Try checking your nearest gun show for cases. All of the ones down here in NW FL usually have a couple of vendors selling tactical type cases for pretty good deals.

    I have two black tactical ones complete with mag pockets, heavy duty zippers and a carrying strap as well as handles. They were made my Liberty Mfg Co out of St Louis MO. I tried looking for a website, but they don't seem to have one out. I paid $35 for a long one that fits a FAL length rifle or 24" AR and $30 for a shorty that fits my AK perfectly.

    So don't forget checking the area shows for good cases.

    Good Shooting

    Check Bushmaster's site. I've bought a couple of their "Discreet Carrying Case for Carbines" and have found them VERY well made. I don't know who makes them but I like the 360 padding and the internal mag pouches.

    I have an Uzi in one and an AR in another....and carry one every day.

    Yes, AssaultSystems renamed themselves ShootingSystems a while back. These cases are IMO better than the comparably proced Eagle cases. Thicker padding, stiffer case.

    I bought the Allen a few weeks ago, real good deal for the money think I paid 24 bucks. The Allen dosen't have a "pad" for say but dose have a layer of material sewn in coverng the zipper. Ran my had in it partially zipped could not feel any metal from the zipper. Another plus it's Made in the USA

    I carry a full line of Bagmaster cases and bags.


    In Heavy Weapons Cases, I have 30, 36, 42, 48, and 62" cases (the rectangular ones), and in Tactical Weapons Cases, I carry 22, 30, 35, 38, 42, and 46" cases in the Deluxe series. These are all inside the case measurements.

    I also carry rifle and shotgun cases, and my case prices are competitive.

    Bagmaster products are all made in sunny St. Louis, MO, and offer a lifetime warranty. Please feel free to check things out. If you have any questions, please send me an email or give me a call.

    Shoot straight,
