Anyone know of a US made discreet rifle case?

Want something that has backpack straps, holds an AR (or two), other gear and doesn't scream: "GUN!"

Something like this:

Search turned up nothing.

Thanks,

I'm going to get one of those royal blue Castle Rock bags and hang this off of it:

This may work for you....

Nicely constructed case and I'm pretty sure they're made in the US. I got mine from Area 51 (site sponsor), but I'm not sure they carry them anymore.

Thanks for all the help folks.

I really like this one, but want back pack type straps, for when I want to carry it while on two wheels or snow shoes.

Now you are talking, all of these 'discreet' gun cases that have been posted are more tactical than 5.11 tactical pants. They stand out really bad. You need to look at tennis racket cases, guitar cases, large brief cases, ect.

guitar cases tennis cases and briefcases stand out just as bad in 99% of environments where you would want to "discretely" transport your rifle.

The one that looks like a folding chair/pop up canopy case is the slickest I've seen yet for real world use.


Example: I look like a hillbilly. There is a half inch of ice falling tonight. Just where the hell does someone suppose I am taking my tennis racket? draws attention.

all depends on your attire and how you present yourself....I wear slacks and dress shirts to work all week and right now I wear a calf length dress coat for winter...., a briefcase would make perfect sense for me to be carrying. I would rarely look "normal" carrying any of the other options, or any of the "discreet" cases being sold if I were in the attire I wear 75% or more of the time.

If I had tennis shoes, shorts, and a sleeveless shirt on.....tennis bag would be perfect.

If I had longer hair, a shaved head, or a rock band t-shirt on.....a discreet guitar case would be perfect.

I cant really find a great use for the so called "discreet" cases that are rectangular in shape......with the material used and overall size, I would suspect either an AR or some smaller pistol caliber sub gun like an MP5 or the likes.

Just my personal opinion, but if your goal is to be discreet....perhaps having a few different options for discreet cases to match your attire would be the best route? I mean, if I were walking around last spring at almost 280 lbs, how many people would have thought it was a tennis racket in my tennis case when walking from my vehicle into work?



ETA......my typing is SLOW I guess! haha

Well i live in Phoenix....We can play tennis year around, and they asked for a discreet case. If you run across me im just another blondy going out to play tennis, with massive firepower!
edit: im not a hillbilly, nor do i look like one. So my tennis bag fits me. When i leave my home, i like the fact that people see me carrying a tennis bag versus all the "covert" obvious rifle bags available. Guarantee nobody knows. Like previous post have said use what fits you. p.s. how often does one carry a folding chair/pop up canopy around a city?

I believe some of their products are and some are not. I saw a tv show that said some product that had been made in China was again made in the U.S. to have better QC.

Probably not US made, but cheap and discrete. I break down my AR and slip the upper and lower each into the leg of an old pair of sweat pants. The bag is divided and I put the upper on one side, the lower on the other. The pockets on the outside of the bag will hold several magazines each. An 18 inch AR-15 upper is about the max length that will fit, plenty of room for a scoped upper. The lower fits with lots of room to spare. Best of all it looks like what it is, a tool bag.

Got a C3 & love it. At 26" x 11" it's about as small and discreet as a rifle case can be made, but a gun guy will always ID a 1000 Denier Cordura nylon bag with a knowing nod.

Has removable backpack straps, and a roll top closure means you don't have to worry about a busted zipper ruining your day
Link Posted: 2/2/2011 6:10:03 AM EDT
I used the Bucket Boss Extreme tool bag. Large and roomy. I could put 3 broken down carbines, 6 30-round magazines in the inside pouches, and 12 30-round magazines in the outside pockets and still have room for parts, cleaning gear,and the like.

The bag is well made and heavy duty. I used it when I worked a not-so-well-located convienance store and would leave it on the counter. Since I was in a Bullet proof cage, and practiced pulling it out he bag and putting it together, it take less than 20 seconds to have it ready to Rock-and-Roll. I just told people it was what I was using as a gym bag if they asked.

No one even suspected I was that heavily armed.

Check out Sneaky Bags, www.sneakybags.com There site doesn't have pics up, but if you called and asked them to email pics, I'm sure they would. The medium covert will fit a 16" AR without having to break it down. Pricey, but looks well built. Will be getting one soon.

Tool bags rule for discreet carry.
This one was ~ $30 from Home Depot.com and will hold 2 carbines 14+ mags and a lot more.

You know you could just take a tape measure to REI and look at packs; any pack that has 25" of vertical space will fit a broken down 16" AR.
