New Copper Basin Takedown Firearm Backpack

Copper Basin Takedown Firearm Backpack

In recent years, discreet carry bags – especially those for long guns – have become more popular with some in the shooting community. As a guy who likes to travel, I can certainly appreciate the need for having a non-obvious gun bag when strolling through the lobby of a hotel. After all, I neither want to leave a rifle in the trunk of a rental car nor let everyone know that I am toting “something tactical” up to my room.

Copper Basin has a new low profile backpack that is specially designed for takedown guns and other non-standard firearms like AR pistols and SBRs. It is aptly named the Takedown Firearm Backpack.

The pack has a fold open design that allows the owner to fully access everything inside. On the outside, the gun has a very non-tactical appearance: no MOLLE, FDE or Velcro strips. Inside, there are various pockets, straps and bits of webbing to secure a firearm, magazines and other gear. A felt lining protects the gun’s finish while structural foam breaks up the outline of a gun when stowed. The top of the pack has a quick access flap should you need to quickly get to your firearm.

The pack is flexible enough to work with a variety of firearms including:

  • Alaskan Lever Action Takedown Rifles
  • AR & AK Pistols
  • AOW Shotguns / Compact Shotguns
  • Century Arms AK Pistols
  • Century Arms Draco Pistols
  • Henry Survival AR-7 Rifle
  • Kel-Tec Sub-2000 Rifles
  • Kriss Vector Gen II SDP and SBR
  • Ruger 10/22 Takedown Factory Rifle, 22 Charger & 22 Charger Takedown
  • Zenith Firearms MKE Z-5RS, MKE Z-5P, MKE Z-5K

The suggested retail price is $99.99.

    Not black, no molle slots, no flasy “ninja operator molon labe” logo.

    Will never sell 🙂

  • TIm

    I don’t know. While these ‘discreet bags’ don’t have molle, velcro, etc., they still don’t look like ‘normal’ bags that urban dwellers walk around with. They’re clearly something different.

    My tendency for years, has been to buy ‘off the shelf’ bags and then modify the interiors myself for specific need. Cheaper, too.

      Darn… another bag that’s too small for my MechTech…

  • Sunshine_Shooter

    This is something I’ve been looking for for a while now. Something that can hold a taken-down weapon, but doesn’t look like it contains a taken-down weapon.

    Basically, the polar opposite of ‘tactical diaper bags’. (because ‘grayman’ is for p——-s, apparently).

    Why not just buy a Camelback water ruck and remove the water bladder?

    Bam. Toss your sub2k in there with some happy sticks. Everyone sees it as your canteen.

  • Holdfast_II

    Needs more Hello Killy logos.

    For Deadpool, of course.

  • Blumpkin

    Will it fit my draco in addition to my extendos?

  • RocketScientist

    Still pales in comparison to my SU-16C. It fits perfectly into a $5.99 tennis racket bag, with 30-rd mag inserted. Can be fired in this configuration (or you can extend the stock for shouldering, withouth removing mag). I’ve walked just about anywhere you could imagine witht his slung over my shoulder. Short of carrying it while wearing a suit into a professional environment, I don’t think it’d ever draw a second glance… even then they’d probably just assume you went to the gym over lunch?

  • Pedenzo

    Eh….no waist belt = fail.

    And without taking down your pistol….I’m not sure how it would ever fit….

  • st381183

    Yeah cuz walking the mean streets of my city with a takedown 22 in my back pack makes me feels safe from street thugs.

  • Ryan L

    tennis racquet bag is my preferred discreet travel bag.

    • Calavera

      Violin case for me. Old school.

    • thedonn007

      Are there any backpack versions available?

    Takin down jihad, with a take down 10/22.
