500D Cordura Fabric

Our 42″ 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

Features are important so we did not hold anything back with our rifle bag. This bag provides a removable shooting/cleaning mat that is the width of the bag. When not being used as a shooting mat it is attached by hook & loop in the center of the bag and keeps the guns from hitting each other.

4 x Configurable Security Straps

We have solved the age old problem of your bag interior straps not being in the right place to secure you 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.

Backpack Carry or Handle Carry

The choice is yours.

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″ 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.

Will my rifle fit in the 42″ 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″-21″ 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 check 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. Tom (verified owner)

    Got my 42″ rifle bag recently and finally had a chance swap gear from another bag. Loaded it up with my AR, 2 hand guns, various mags, ammo and other assorted stuff. The shoulder straps make carrying everything a breeze. It has a thick Cordura cloth with plenty of pockets. The stitching and zippers look great. Really like the adjustable velcro straps to hold the rifles and the removable divider that can be used a matt. This bag was worth the money and wait.

  2. Bob (verified owner)

    Great rifle bag.

  3. Rob (verified owner)

    Solid bag, well built. It will hold more than you can carry. Internal straps to hold rifle in place work very well, especially when humping up to the AO. The bag is comfortable to carry on unmounted patrols for fairly long distances. And it didn’t fall apart when mistreated.

    I would like to see a yoke type strap, perhaps as an option, I am not a fan of single straps as they tend to get twisted up as you slide them on.

  4. Dan (verified owner)

    Great Bag would love to see the handle webbing a little longer when you fill the bag with gear the handle shrink down towards the bag making it harder to grab

  5. Ernest (verified owner)

    Excellent build quality; highly recommended.

  6. Chris (verified owner)

    The 42” rifle bag has become my go to rimfire bag for precision rifle training. It has room for everything I need for hours of range time. It holds 2 rifles, magazines, ammo, cleaning kits, tools, eye pro, electronics, flags, bipods, shooting bags, etc…
    The backpack shoulder straps make it convenient for heading out into the mountains for field position shooting

  7. 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.

  8. Blake (verified owner)

    Great bag. I have been using this bag for almost a year now with two riffles, a pistol, and a a fair amount of ammo. Bag is showing no wear at seams/stitching. Has functioned flawlessly.

  9. don (verified owner)

    Bought this bag after getting another brand’s bag that was too small and had thin materials – This one is the complete opposite.
    Plenty of room for any AR, even with a fixed stock and 20in barrel. Lots of straps to make sure nothing shifts in transit, and the criss cross end flaps are a nice touch for the butt and muzzle. The front pocket is subdivided inside with zippered pockets perfect for tools, and the outer pockets expand large enough to fit earpro or a couple magazines.
    The material is thick, zippers are beefy, and stitching shows no signs of wear even after it has become my go-to rifle bag for any trip. Liked it so much that Lynx was my first choice when i needed a replacement pistol/range bag – and that has been excellent as well.

  10. Mace (verified owner)

    Great bag…. well built and quite a bit of well thoughout storage. Since there are many imported bags on the market with similar features, at the end of the day i bought this one because you get all of that built here in the USA.

  11. Patrick (verified owner)

    I love my Lynx defense 42″ rifle bag! I would recommend this company to anyone looking for a range bag. I received excellent customer service and a quality product, buy with confidence.

  12. Nana Mizuguchi (verified owner)

    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!

  13. Thomas B Redens, MD (verified owner)

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

  14. Robert Harris (verified owner)

    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.

  15. Daniel K Rutherford (verified owner)

    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.
