4 Things Your SBR Case Needs to Offer

You’ve done the research and work it takes to acquire a short barrel rifle, so you want to make sure you protect it with the best Short Barrel Rifle case available on the market. Don’t purchase a case for your SBR without first considering these four features.

Tailored Fit For Your SBR

When it comes to securing and carrying your short barrel rifle or AR pistols, make sure it’s not sliding around in a case or an old duffel bag that wasn’t made to accommodate it.

Cases that are 30 inches in length and at least 12 inches tall make a great fit for SBRs or any rifle with a collapsible or folding stock. A shorter gun case ensures a proper fit, secure storage, and takes up less cargo space while you’re carrying.

If you have a rifle with a collapsible stock with a 10.5″ barrel or less, you might consider an even smaller case such as The Byte, specifically crafted for submachine guns.

Plus, a smaller case makes it easier to store your gun case when it’s not in use.

SBR Case Padding

Protecting your short barrel rifle is extremely important, so the foam, or padding, that your case has is a make or break part of your rifle case.

Ensuring that your SBR is secure from movement and secure from accidental damage in transit is key.

SBR Case Retention

Making sure your SBR is strapped and secure in the bag is essential. We include three modular straps that allow you to configure your rifle retention in any way you see fit.

Tactical Case vs Discreet Case

Consider where you will carry your firearm and what kind of attention it might bring. For those carrying to the range or routine training, you probably prefer a more tactical gun case that offers protection from rugged terrain and plenty of storage and customization features for morale patches.

For those carrying to prepare and protect, a discreet SBR case that offers the specific storage needed for the safe transport of your weapon with a casual exterior that blends in would best suit your carrying needs.

Practical Storage Solutions

Transporting your firearm is pointless if you can’t carry everything you need to go with it. Ammo, magazines, hearing protection, to name a few. You want to choose the SBR bag that can accommodate everything you need while storing it securely. Whether you need ammo pouches, adjustable strap configurations, a hook, and a loop system to tack things into your bag, don’t overlook how important it is to have the equipment you need when using your SBR available at a moment’s notice.

The top 3 things we make sure we have in our case are:

  • Magazines
  • Ammo
  • Required/Emergency Tools (To include oil/barrel snake/etc.)

These three things are the most important items to carry in any firearms case.

Case Durability

There’s a reason shooters outgrow their old gym bags when carrying high-powered guns. Those bags weren’t made to last, and they definitely weren’t made to haul firearms and ammo.

When researching SBR cases, we recommend looking for bags and cases made of quality materials, like 500D Cordura or 600D Magnatuff fabric. Make sure the bag is double stitched for the most reliable carrying.

We also believe in purchasing products that come with lifetime manufacturer warranties to protect your investment best.

  1. Good Stuff. I added a longer string to my zipper so that in the event of an emergency, I can quickly have access my SBR with a quick pull of the zipper. A sturdy durable zipper is a must in a quick react situation.

  2. I went through several options before I finally found the perfect range bag for my needs. I think it was as much trial and error as anything..and maybe a little luck.

  3. Another thing to take into consideration is the overall weight. If you are just going to the range this isn’t much of an issue, but if you are going to be walking a long way the weight of the case, gun and ammo could be substancial.
