Rifle Cases?

What are you using for your M1A? I did the search and really only found discussion of Pelican hard cases, the VooDo bag and the Eagle HSR mat/case. I'm looking for something back and forth to the range, thinking soft, but of good quality.

I have an Eagle soft side for my Noveske N4 and love it.

Thanks in advance. Pics are always nice......................

This is the Voodoo 46in case. Med-high quality, great for trips back n forth to the range, or even backpacking.


Thanks from Gene Parmesan

I have an Eagle Drag bag, and Eagle HSRC and an Eagle Discreet 42" case (which fits my 18.5" perfectly).

I tend to use the Eagle Discreet case more often than the others for range duty. I really like the HSRC but my range is in a shaded area and the ground is always wet so I use the discreet case with a dedicated shooting mat to keep the mud off the HSRC case.

Check Natchesz. The have Eagle Tactical cases on sale. You can get an HSRC case in black for $149.99. A discreet case for $49.99 or a drag bag for $129.99.... those are all amazing prices for Eagle merch.

Just be aware that Eagle has started having the dominican republic make some of their products..... my khaki drag bag was made in the DO, my HSRC was made in the US, and 1 of my discreet cases was made in the US and the other the DO. Comparing the quality from the US to the DO is very hard to spot differences. Both are bombproof. the only thing with the DO is you can see where they marked the fabric on the inside for sewing llines. It doesn't take away from the function but was a difference from the US craftsmanship.

EDIT: I also have an Eberlestock backpack which is another alternative if you want to carry all your gear to and from the range in one bag. I only really use mine for hunting but it is another option to consider if you have to travel a great distance with all your equipment.

The biggest thing I have found is you get what you pay for. I had a Midway brand discreet rifle case that only lasted a couple trips to the range until a seam blew out and separated from the padding. My Midway range bag on the other hand is still going strong.

I did some checking on Natchez website - that's where I got the Eagle case for my N4. The Eagle 4608 looks nice, but it's 'otta stock for now. I'm not convinced I need a drag bag or anything that high speed at this point.

Ranger I use the Voodoo for my range carry and yes they get heavy if you carry all the bells and whistles. Also look at the good old Parachutist case M 1950. You can not beat those damn things up. Check out Evil bay for one.

For range trips I like my SKB case, I can fit 4 un-scoped rifles in there. I wouldn't fly with that many rifles in the case. I like it because you don't have to have custom cut foam to keep your rifles safe. I can switch between 03A3's, Garands, M14/M1A's or any combination up to 4 rifles.

I have two pelicans and a few cheap platic cases. The pelican 1750 cases will protect your rifle beyond imagination but real impraticle. I use one to take two unscoled rifles to the range. When I put my nm AR-15 and McMillan supermarch the case weighs over 50 lbs. Thank god it has wheels. The AR has the front and aft weights added. Like I said great case but ...... If anything they are great for sending a rifle back and forth in the mail. I never give shipping damage a second thought.

That's a brilliant idea 'Dog!! I really like that - a M1950..................... no JMPI required.

I use a BlackHawk sniper drag bag. Beside from the rifle, this can how lots of stuff. It has a spotting scope on the side compartment, and a smaller compartment can hold up to ten 20-round mags. If you have gloves, binos and other small items will fit nicely in here.

The materials is constructed of 1000 denier nylon. Has 2 loops in each compartments to tight down your goods securely. There is also a dedicated pouch for a cleaning kit. The heavy duty nylon zippers seem to be secured and will not separate anytime soon.

I have used this on my road trip and many trips to the range. So far seem to hold up strongly.


Thanks from jens5 and BUDS13

Check the Galati website. I've been using soft cases for a L>O>N>G time and their's is the best built and thickest padded I've seen yet. Currently using their double case. TOUGH!

I use an Eagle HSRC for quick trips to the range. If going further, I put the rifle in the HSRC, then the HSRC into my Pelican 1750.

I have a Pelican which I use for major transport and protection. I did the cut out for the weapon and would like to add magazine slots. The down side is I can barely close the car doors or the trunk due to the length and thickness so I'm in the market for a backup case to transport the weapon to and from the range.
