Our rifle cases are 100% American made and we are extremely proud to say our bags are manufactured in North Carolina.


Both sides of the rifle case come with 4 completely removable Velcro straps. This allows you to configure your rifles in a way that you feel fits best. With our dual triangle barrel end and buttstock retention, your rifle will not bounce around or move inside your rifle case no matter what the conditions are.

Built-in Range Mat

Our 42 inch rifle case features a built-in range mat that also serves as the divider for your case. The range mat is great for the safe placement of your firearms while at the range. The mat is also great for cleaning your firearms, with an easy-to-clean fabric it makes clean-up of your gun cleaning a breeze.

500D Cordura Fabric

Our 42 inch rifle cases are made with Cordura fabric, which is a rugged and durable performance fabric for a variety of end uses. Cordura offers enhanced tear and abrasion resistance, and long-lasting durability.

Criss-Cross Buttstock & Barrel Security

Much like hard cases you don’t want your rifle to bounce around in your soft case. We have gone the extra mile and created Criss-Cross security for your barrel and buttstock. So you get to pick how secure you want your rifle while carrying.

Removable Shooting Mat

When going to the range often time you’ll find yourself needing to shoot prone. Our rifle case features a built-in range mat that will you remove and use to lay on to shoot your gun prone.

When not being used as a shooting mat it is attached by velcro in the center of the bag and keeps your guns from banging into each other.

4 x Configurable Retention Straps

We have solved the age-old problem of your bag interior straps not being in the right place to secure your firearm. With our four interior straps, not only can you ensure a secure firearm, but you can pick and choose how many or few you’d like to use.

Will my rifle fit in the 42 inch rifle case?

We have covered what size rifle case to get more in-depth over on our blog.

This case is ideal for rifles with 18 inch-21 inch barrel lengths and firearms with an overall length of 40″ or less. While longer firearms may fit in the case we cannot guarantee a comfortable or snug fit.

It is always recommended to collapse your stock all the way when measuring the overall length of your firearm for the case measurement and when you are carrying your AR 15 in the case.

About our Rifle Case Manufacturing Process

Our bags are handmade in North Carolina where we cut, sew, and quality checks the bags prior to shipment. Our process allows for total control of the manufacturing process.

We are a cut and sew company which means that we build the bags from the ground up starting with the fabric on the roll down to the last zipper.

  1. Clint Walker

    I carefully inspected the 42-inch rifle bag when it arrived. It is a thoughtful design that is well made. The bag has enough room to carry two AR15’s and a pistol with accessories and a divider helps keep the rifles from grinding on one another during transport. My AR10 fit well when broken down and the backpack straps make it easy to carry. Overall, a very high quality bag.

  2. Nana Mizuguchi

    The bag is perfect for carrying my Scar 17 and Tavor 12 S. Plenty of room for ammo and accessories. The bag is durable.
    It just looks cool!

  3. Thomas B Redens, MD

    Very well made (in the USA!), excellent customer service. Completely happy with the product and the company.

  4. Robert Harris

    After receiving and opening the box with the new bag I was so overwhelmed with the quality and the color I chose I am going to order another bag very soon.

    Buy once. By right. I researched this type of product and many hours of doing so brought me to Lynx. Least expensive, no. Best product… absolutely. This is a very well thought out case. The exterior is well designed. Great back pack and sternum strap arrangement. Outside are three small compartments with Velcro closures and bungie cord to keep the pocket tight. Great for magazines. Zip open the outer pocket and there are four compartments. Two side slide in pockets which for me hold a 9MM and 45 comfortably. On the outer face there are yet again, two more zip close compartments. All in all, there is enough space for weekend travel, let alone weaponry. Open the zippered main compartment to find a removable shooting/cleaning pad and Velcro strapped storage for two AR’s (or your choice), one on each side. Great butt and muzzle capture via two diagonally opposed pockets. Now on to quality. Top notch is all I can say. From choice of materials to stitching to design layout, everything is perfect. It is a pleasure to support an American manufacturing company building a uniquely American product using American made materials. Adding outstanding customer service on top of that and you have a winner. I’ll be ordering my range bag soon! Thank you to all of the dedicated team at Lynx Defense.

    Made in NC with US sourced materials. This sold me. Too many bags out there are imported and cheaply made. This bag is rugged, tough, plenty of storage and will last for years to come. My AR fits perfectly and I use the other storage for my 12 gauge. Plenty of room for magazines, a handgun and everyday carry items. I’m really impressed by the quality! Everything stores tight and secure, no shifting. Well worth the wait and the money!

  7. Mark V

    I recently ordered a 42″ tactical rifle case. I received it on May 24. I check the different features of the bag. I like that you get a rifle cleaning/ prone pad included. There is plenty of storage for magazines and tools and ammunition. The construction of the bag is first rate. Also like the fact its all American made.

  8. Big J

    I just received my Lynx 42” Ranger Green Rifle Case..All I can say is WOW, it’s Awesome! This is my 4th Lynx Rifle case & I also have 2 Lynx Pistol Bags, I love them all.
    I love to support Small Business & Buy American Made Products, Lynx Defense Quality never lets me down. If you need a great rifle case or Pistol range bag , I can highly recommend Lynx Defense products!

  9. Jason

    I’m very happy with the quality and size of the bag. It’s well worth the money.

  10. Robert Ronning (verified owner)

    This is the best rifle case I have ever come across. The quality of the materials, the workmanship and the design are astounding. It is obvious that great care and a tremendous amount of pride went into constructing this product. And all made in the USA (one of my main requirements for my AR 10 build)! If someone is looking for the least expensive case, they will be buying one every 2 years forever. This product is worth every dollar it cost and will most likely be able to passed down to the next generation. Thank you.

    Look over the bag upon receiving it today . The bag is constructed very well. I thought it was 1000D but it’s only 500D but still very well made . I liked how it’s laid out and the factional aspect of it is well thought out. I like the pockets on the outside you can cinch up and latched . Inside the bag the crossed webbing in the corners is a great feature to put my M4 shotgun and scar 17 boom 💥 it all fit and strapped in perfect. Now I’m an honest patriot and consumer this bag is expensive buy far but you can’t put a price on American jobs and American companies that employ real Americans especially in these times. Overall I will buy more products from Lynx defense and the bag is a home run .

    Comparing to my other rifle case bought from another vendor similar design some differences. Lynx has more internal straps to secure rifle. Outer material is more heavy duty. There are a few more pockets on my existing case but they are smaller. The inner insulation to separate rifles on the existing case can be removed and used for a shooting mat. Overall very pleased with the Lynx case is excellent and made in the USA. Which is very important to me.
