With the advent of the Bullpup rifle, it soon became evident that they need a specific type of case. Ogden’s Tactical Systems has been producing high class, specialist accessories since 1998 and their latest creation is the Tactical Case, specifically for Bullpup airguns. Available in two lengths, the compact 30” or the longer 35”, they are certainly made to last, and compete with the likes of AIM, in terms of overall quality of manufacture.
Made from military grade Cordura, in Multicam camo, it’s well thought out, with a host of features that come as standard. Dimensions of my 35” case came in at 34.5 x 14 x 4”. A full-length, wrap around YKK zip is a good start. The strong webbing handles are box-stitched for durability. The comfort carry handle section is a tough material that pops together and feels robust. There’s a large cargo pocket on one side with a wide waterproof zip, and a second slimline pocket set in the front, suitable for documents, silencer, or other add-on accessories.
On the back, there’s a rucksackstyle shoulder harness, which is well padded, along with a sternum strap for added comfort, and drag loops on each end for further fixing points. So, all bases seem to be covered, for the shooter who likes to get out and push his kit to the limits. Again, full wrap around webbing reinforcement is reassuring, adding strength where it matters, and it all does look extremely well made. Further attention to detail comes with webbing connection loops at each side of the front pocket, and a Velcro pad on the front.
Inside are two adjustable retaining straps, which keep the gun safe in transit, with a small slide-in pouch at each end; just slip the butt into one end, strap up, and the cargo will be safe and sound. Opt to ignore the straps, and there’s plenty of padding regardless. Thick foam panels cover each side, with thinner foam around all the sides, so overall protection is assured.
When I took delivery, it set me thinking about the average length of a Bullpup, the figures are as follows: Hatsan Gladius, which is admittedly a bit of a beast, hits 34.5”, BSA’s Defiant comes in at 31”, The Galahad is around 27.5, Cometa Orion BP 28”, and the Daystate Pulsar and Renegade both at 30”. I would opt for the longer case every time for the sake of a few extra inches, which gives extra room for protection and manoeuvre. Maybe a bit tight for the Gladius, but otherwise, any of the other models will fit a treat, with room to spare, for neatly stowed and wrapped accessories too. Overall then, this new Tactical Bullpup Case is the business. It’s a neat design, built with high quality materials, and made in England!
