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
- SIG MPX SBR, MPX-K SBR, PMPX
- Zenith Firearms MKE Z-5RS, MKE Z-5P, MKE Z-5K
The suggested retail price is $99.99.
