I was wondering if any of you have or could recommend a good carry case that is discreet that I could carry into a hotel or something when I travel. I have a collapsible stock with a 16" barrel.Any recommendations?

Put your rifle in two pieces..... and stick it in your regular luggage. I mean...that's what I do. I don't pay money for stuff I can already handle.

"What da problem is?"

My AR has a 20" barrel and an A2 stock. I live in a college town and my school has a big music department, so I got an electric bass guitar case for mine and nobody gives me a second thought. Got it for $25 from amazon. Since your rifle is shorter, a tennis racquet case might work.

edit: spelling and first post nails it. Mine won't fit in any of my other bags.

There is nothing discrete about those cases!

True
Unless any of you have a better solution, it may be a Tennis raquet bag!!!

I actually have this case http://www.outdoorbunker.com/Homeland_Security_Covert_Gun_Case_p/(lps-pvc-mc).htm

I paid a local tailor to add a small velcro patch field to it. I added some goofy music patches to it and it looks like a keyboard case. Carried it in around the lobby and to my room at 4 star hotel with no second looks and no issues at all.

While the Larue bag and the other black tactical bag are good travel bags.. they're definitely not discrete (as poster several up said).

I got to give some +1's to the tennis bag, tool bag..etc.
Greatest thing about the AR platform (maybe not greatest..but you get the point) is that they can break down in two pulls of a pin.

NO one would ever think a nice rifle would fit in a tool or tennis bag. BUT.. dont get too fancy a tool or tennis bag. People have broken into cars for less.

I think the best thing to use is some very plain, no frills bag or case. The beat-up guitar case sounds great..oooh.. go for a beat-up violin case.

I personally use an older tennis bag. Walking out of the house while carrying a big gun case or a tactical drag-bag type thing is just too much.
I think it lets people know exactly what you keep in the house...etc.

Good luck and post back what you ended up using.

If you get a normal case but you don't want your equipment rattling around, here's what I did. I got the idea from a guy with a guitar case and a M1 garand....since the top of my case was deep enough, I used it to hold my lower to give me more room. I also laid a padded packing sheet across the upper and mags to prevent my lower from getting scratched.

I still want to do it with a guitar case...

LWRC makes a guitar gun case. It is badass.

I'm thinking a tennis racquet bag/case for my Mk18 clone, preferably one with an outside pocket to hold a suppressor.

Good man!!

Mine is a 10.5" with Smith Vortex G5 mount...may be a touch snug, but it should fit.

It's a tiny bit snug with my 10.5" with the AAC QD Blackout on one end and the Magpul ACS on the other, but no big issue, fits like a glove. My only gripe is there's not too much padding, but then again it's a $15 single racket bag.

I wouldn't want anything with mag pockets. I have this Maxpedition, which is cheap in comparison to some things out there, and I love it; it's of extremely high quality:

I got it in black, but I bet it would be cool in the Khaki color. Seriously consider this bag; I couldn't be happier with it.

The Larue case is working great for me. Mine is blue. It goes were I do. I need a velcro patch that says DELL. It will look like a huge lap top case.

I have been looking at the paladin go bags

Looks like an invite for theft or worse. It says something of value inside.

Troy, that is way cool and very ingenious.....
as far as a true discreet case this might work and the price is right....come on down....LOL

Any of the "discrete" gun cases still look like gun cases. If you really want discrete head over to the music store and get a case for an electric guitar, keyboard, etc...
