I will never quite love short barrelled centrefires, but the increasing popularity of folding stocks has made me keen to adopt this compact format wherever possible. The Mil-Tec Large case in Olive green is the perfect companion for a sub 41”x10.5” carbine, folder or airgun with minimal kit stashed in the outer side pockets. The 100% polyester build has demonstrated good quality stitching throughout, which I regularly find to be the weak point in rifle cases. It has held up well to being deliberately stuffed with too much gear before lazily (in the case of thorough research) using the full-length zipper to draw closed.
Internal padding is kept brief but effective, to offer a little muzzle and butt protection at either end and with the zip open on all three sides, the case folds flat without too much internal fussy strapping to make a comfortable shooting mat. Zippered internal pockets in the main section will hold papers and range notes, but like the rest of the internal pockets, don’t stuff them too full, as there just isn’t volume for masses of kit. Its 2.7” initial thickness soon gets used by the scopes and bipods that surround actually quite compact Rifles.
An outer pocket runs 2/3 the length of a bag and will hold binoculars, ear defenders or compact spotting scopes, with smaller external pockets for ammo and magazines or a tool kit. Each has elasticated closure with both Velcro flap and QD buckle. Secondary buckles are positioned on the back of the case for accessory shoulder straps, so you can back pack it when required. As standard, a pair of central handles enables a nice balanced carry. I liked the minimalist internal gun straps to secure your rifle, as they added little bulk and all seams remained flat without snagging every time you take the rifle out or the case from the boot of your car. External Molle webbing is omnipresent these days, for whatever further accessories you choose to add.
