Pretty much what the topic says. I'm looking for a case to store just my dedicated .22LR upper in and I don't want to use a full size rifle case. Does anyone make cases for just uppers? I'd like something that isn't much bigger then the whole upper.

A shotgun scabbard would work.

I have several of them that I have picked up for exactly that purpose. Mine are made by Allen. they are youth rifle cases. About 30 - some inches long and hold a small 22 like a Chipmunk or an AR upper just right.

I just buy one anytime I see it at a sporrting goods store.

If its like my extra uppers, just leave it sit for awhile. Eventually it will grow its own lower!

This You might as well just buy a full length case (or 3) ...
I know, we're not much help, but it happens.
Oh yeah, the shotgun scabbard should work fine (till that upper grows).

Surplus M60 spare barrel case. About $10. Makes a great dust/storage cover. 16" upper max.

I have a Boyt Harness case which holds my AR 'split' like that. It works for me and is a great case, but not the cheapest out there.

The problem I have is not with a case for an upper per se, it's that I have different mags (specifically .22, .45 ACP, and 7.62x39) that go with the upper. So I want a case that's able to carry the upper and several of the different caliber mags together. I have a couple types but neither is really slick. Both were designed for subgun or folder stock carbine style guns.

The case makers need to fill this gap.

Not legal advice, MHO, YMMV, etc.
