So with the 16" barrel and folding stock it comes to a detached 18" barrel and 18.5" folded stock frame at 4" wide (damn charging handle ;D

Any one carry theres in a breifcase or small tool box?

Im looking for a breifcase but may just go for a small toolbox with bottom compartment, cut some foam for the barrel and receiver and keep the quick detach ACOG and some mags on the top tool pullout.

Hope i explained that right :)

Pics if you got em >:D

Well i tryed Target,walmart,home depot, and lowes just to get an idea of what im looking for.

They had a perfect aluminum breifcase 1" too short :duh:

A nice 22" steel toolbox though. Have to think about it some more.

If you are really set on a tool box - be sure to look at the Stanley Fat Max (available at Lowes for like $35). I use one as my gun cleaning kit / parts case and it is not only light and roomy (28" long), but has a rubber seal to protect against moisture. You can load it up heavy, and it is sturdy enough to take a beating.

Still - I like Pelican and Storm cases for weapon transport.

I carried my Pelican 1720 with my SBR LMT in it - into a hotel to check in, and the woman asked me if I played music. She thought it was a keyboard case I suppose. I just smiled and replied "I make some noise mostly" and left it at that. Kinda funny... ;)

Fold the stock and slip the barrel out and it fits in a small backpack. Very nice indeed. I just wish the barrel removal was tool free.

Remember, the briefcase dimensions are edge to edge not diagonal.

So a 16" x 12" is actually 20" corner to corner.......

Oh and remember to check the INSIDE measurements not the outside.....

I have looked at some laptop backbacks and they seem pretty good and discreet. Found a hardcase 20 inch breifcase but im not paying 200+ for it :eek:

Okay, decided to go one step further and seperate the upper and lower. It only saves an inch and a half but i can get it into that 18" case and should have room for everything i need.

I think that case was 25 bucks or so and i will go get it tomorrow. If i can just find some foam now i should be all set and will post pics when it is done.

Not to be nosey, but is there some particular reason you need to be ultra discreet? ???

I believe you gotta go with what works for you - so don't get me wrong. :D

Targus makes a nice heavy duty laptop backpack that has additional padding and is super durable nylon. I use one to carry my stuff to work when I'm ride the motorcycle. I can load it down heavy, and still be comfortable. I also use a Camelback Hawg when riding mountainbike - but only for discreet carrying of a handgun.

Oh, Anvil also makes a NICE briefcase. Practically bullet proof! ;D

I happen to have a shitload of Pelican pick and pluck foam inserts on hand. I think they are at least 20" x 20" and 4" thick. I'll have to double check the dimensions. If anyone is interested - send me a PM.

I'll give them away for free - if anyone wants to pay postage?

Yep, Im a ultrasecret assassin ;D

J/K, Where i live there is alot of parents and kids and i always hate sneaking out with my huge tactical gun cases and hope i dont get seen. I also dont want people thinking my apartment is a good place to rob when im not there, not that my dog and gun safe wouldnt stop em. Lastly one of the places i shoot requires a nice hike starting in a residential zone and with such a small case i could throw it in my large pack and not have to carry by hand.

Oh, plus the cool factor of making a rifle from a breifcase ;D

Where can I get a pink briefcase? ;D
I saw a pink laptop carrier with wheels that was like a breifcase online, it would go great with the pink XCR ;D

Just picked up my case and am trying to get it all set up, maybe i will paint it pink :D I am short a slab of 1.5 inch foam though :duh:
