Made With 600D Polyester Magnatuff fabric

This SBR bag is made with 600D Polyester Magnatuff™ fabric, which means it will protect your gear from the elements and withstand everyday wear and tear.

Fully Modular SBR Case

Creating a bag that will fit every firearm is impossible. But creating a bag to fit most firearms is what we strive to do. We have also put a large focus on trying to make sure that every user of The Bureau rifle case can customize it to their specific needs. We created a full velcro loop back wall to allow you to put anything from our line of attachments to your own attachments, morale patches, and more.

Our Cases are Under Promised. Over Built.

Our number one priority in all of our products is durability. We double-stich our bags to ensure that they will last. We are so confident in our products we back them with a lifetime manufacturers warranty.

SBR Case Features

SBR Bag Outline

Purpose Built Interior

The Bureau has a streamlined, functional, purpose built interior. We crafted this bag with the end-user in mind. We wanted to make sure there were plenty of storage options as well as the perfect amount of weapon retention.

This case was created for the SBR or pistol AR of your choose and should fit any 10.5″ or shorter barreled rifle.

SBR Case Dimensions

We went through great lengths to make sure we had the perfect measurements for our discreet SBR case. We factored in the most popular SBR barrel lengths as well as overall lengths. The Bureau is 30 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 12 inches tall.

SBR Bag Measurements

Purpose Built Case

The Bureau rifle case was specifically designed to fit Short Barreled Rifles(SBR), AR Pistols, and Personal Defense Weapons(PDW) with or without a Pistol Stabilizing Brace. The Bureau is ideally designed to securely protect your firearms and necessary shooting accessories, such as magazines and ammo.


Measuring at 30 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 12 inches tall, this discreet rifle case will accommodate rifles with collapsible stocks, folding stocks, and most rifles with barrels under 10.5 inches.

Tough Construction

Only 600D Polyester Magnatuff™ fabric met our standards when we developed this bag. We chose it for it’s long-lasting durability and water repellant finish, so you know your gear is protected.

Built-In Toughness

Much like the 36″ Discreet Carry Rifle Case, The Bronx, we don’t want your rifle to be at the mercy of the elements. So we put Polypropylene Fluted corrugated plastic wrapped in closed cell foam in the front and back of The Bureau to ensure it will hold true to form and protect your firearm, ammunition, and other gear.

Sling Style Carry

Two External D-Rings allow versatility of strap placement; shoulder carry or quiver carry (sling). With The Bureau’s no-slip strap pad, it will carry great no matter if you shoulder carry or sling carry.

Discreet Everyday Design

Our classic low-profile design for this rifle case is discreet and designed for those looking for something less tactical and in-your-face. But less tactical doesn’t mean less storage. We’ve added a large exterior pocket to store your must-have accessories and keep them within arm’s reach.

Modular Attachment System

We don’t believe in wasted space at Lynx Defense. That’s why we included a full hook & loop back wall of the bag which acts as a modular attachment system to safely attach extra pockets, medical kits, or whatever else you may need without worrying about damaging your firearm.

2 x Internal Zipper Pockets

Magazines, ammo, hearing protection, and more can all be stored inside The Bureau with our two separate internal zipper pockets. These pockets provide ample storage for your every day carry and range needs. The pockets span the full length of the lid panel and are seperated in the middle providing two individual pockets.

3 x Configurable Security Straps

Storing your firearm with standard-issue security straps can be frustrating, especially when they’re not in the right place. Our three interior straps are configurable, so you have complete control over how many straps to use and when to use them.

The Covert SBR Case Built for You!

Since releasing The Bureau in March 2020 it has quickly grown to be one of our most popular cases. We are excited to continue to make world-class range gear for our customers. If you are still on the fence about what case to purchase see why we recommend a discreet rifle case.

In true Lynx Defense fashion, The Bureau is handmade in the United States of America.

    I was looking for a smaller SBR/AR Pistol type Bag & along came the “Bureau!”
    Since I already have the Bronx & love it, I decided to give it a go!
    When I received the Bureau I gave it a good look over & everything was so well made, Just as I would expect from Lynx Defense. After setting it up with my 10.5 AR pistol & many mags & even my soft carrier..I was hooked!
    It is also very discreet & non flashy so no one knows what’s inside & I really like that aspect of it!
    If you are on the fence about getting the “Bureau” I highly recommend getting it, you won’t be disappointed!
    I also really appreciate The fact That it’s made with high quality materials & right here in America!

    Just got this thing and I’ll say the quality shows in this product. Comes with a certificate signed off by the multiple departments that handle it. Fits my 10.5” AR perfectly. Has panels sewn in the sides to prevent any printing and to keep a clean uniform appearance. Strong metal clips and rings for the shoulder strap. The shoulder strap can be positioned to either carry along your side or moved to carry like a backpack. Really like the look of the diamond stitching on the inside and the overall low pro aesthetic of the outside.

    This case goes with me any time I travel. I keep my 10.5 inch DD MK18 pistol in with a Patagonia Atom Sling bag staged with 3 magazines and medical gear. It fits in the case nicely. I can quickly open the case and get the sling bag on and MK18 out quickly. I also have the 5.11 Covert Case which blends in well but makes a crappy backpack and an off looking case that doesn’t carry as well for me. I usually have a backpack and my Osprey rolling luggage when as well at the Bureau when I enter a hotel and I never get odd looks. The Bureau blends in great and looks like I’m carrying anything but a gun. I can’t recommend it enough!

    Great product! Does the job perfectly. I really like supporting companies that make their product in the USA. Thanks again.

    Have to admit I was very skeptical that this case (The Bureau) would live up to my expectations given the rather hefty price tag, but decided to take a chance. Boy am I glad I did! I have owned many different weapon cases of all shapes and sizes and tend to be very tough on my equipment. Just about every one I’ve owned have failed me in some regard…stitching coming apart, zipper breaking, torn fabric, or poor padding placement. As soon as I opened the box I immediately knew this case would be different. The first thing that stood out was that it is padded on ALL sides yet is not bulky in the least. Then I noticed how perfect and rugged all the stitching is and how rugged the zippers appear to be. Lastly, this is just a darn good looking case and perfect for discreetly transporting your weapon. With the zippered storage compartment on the front and two inside, plenty of room for storing magazines and other accessories, and robust Velcro straps for securing the weapon inside the case. I am 100% confident this case will far exceed my expectations and is by far the best case I’ve ever owned and worth every penny and then some. I will be buying more without a doubt!
