Does anyone know where to find a nice tactical case for my build? My pistol measures just a tad over 24", what size case would be good? The smaller cases I have found only have pockets for a pistol caliber mag won't fit a 223. Looking for something with good quality without the high $$.

I use the UTG 25" Homeland Security Covert. Works just fine, has 3 30 round pockets plus room for others. Nylon seems fine. Zippers aren't beefy by they work. So cheap if you don' like it, use it for something else or toss it.

Try these for quality and design:

Assault Systems

SMG cases

Find your size. Mine is of the highest quality build and materials.

Tactical?

I use a bag made for a tennis racket. Fits my Bushy Carbon 97 like a glove.

I use a $25 Harbor Freight tool box. It measures 18" x 13" x 6", has locking hasps, it has "pluckable" foam insert in the bottom, the top has egg crate type foam and behind that is a divider that will hold small tools(screw drivers, pliers, jags, brushes, rods, stripper clip guides, etc.) and behind the divider I can fit 6 Pmags.

I suppose it isn't very tactical because I have to separate the upper and lower, but still quite handy.

I own several of these (in the full length sizes). They are some of the best made stuff out there.

Do you know if it has the retaining straps inside? Most of the smaller cases I found does not have the straps, the sellers say you don't need it because it fits snug inside so there is no movement. So, do I really need the straps?

Spike sold me a soft case purposely built for an AR pistol - rectangular. Very Very nicely build. Was $50. Not on his web site, just happened to bring one with him to a show.

Don’t laugh, but some paintball rigs fit the bill quite nice. Many have pouches for tanks that will work for mags.

No straps inside. It fits snug like a bug in a rug.

I grew up in St. Louis. Shooting Systems used to have a place out in Arnold. I used to hang out there all the time drooling over the evil black guns. I have several rifle cases, pistol cases, holsters, pouches, etc... Some were labeled "Shooting Systems", others "Assault Systems".

Good, quality stuff.

My two biggest regrets in relation to gun stuff are:

1. They had a clearance sale on everything labeled "Assault Systems" one time. I should have bought a lot more than I did.

2. They had a SPAS 12 with the folding stock for around $600. It was used, but looked brand new. At 18 years of age $600 was more money than I had ever seen.
