Looking for a less flashy way to transport your firearms?
Well Roll-N-Go Takedown Cases have a lot to offer.
I got a chance to check out the Takedown Ruger 10/22 and AR-15 models and this is what they are all about.
Ever have neighbors or a passerby give you weird looks when you are loading your gun cases into your vehicle? How about the overly long big box retailer gun cases sticking out like a sore thumb in your vehicle? Face it there is nothing covert about a standard gun case. You might as well have a flashing neon sign on it screaming GUN! to everyone around. What can be done about that anyway? Well a takedown case allows a smaller package to conceal. Make that case here in the good ole U.S.A. in a neutral color that is at home in many environments and does not scream TACTICAL! like a camouflage or all black case might. Olive drab would work quite well. Now we’re talking right?
The first case we will look at is the Ruger 10/22 Takedown Roll-Up Case. It measures when open 25″x 27″. It will fit more than just the Takedown Ruger 10/22 Rifle. It will fit the AR-7, Rossi Takedown Rifles, Browning Takedown .22 and even the AR-15. Waterproof materials are used so the bag never becomes a wet mess and the pouch flaps are secured with Velcro. There is a convenient handle and durable clips and adjustable straps to keep the rolled case nice and tight. There are 6 pockets that easily fit 30 round AR-15 magazines and really any other accouterments for your weapon you might need. Also three long 25″ pockets will hold firearm receivers and barrels of your choice. A big loop on the outside of the case will allow the rolled case to be attached to whatever you can think of. The D-rings on the outside of the case also allow attachment of a carry sling or attaching to a larger pack.
The AR-15 Takedown Roll-Up Case sports many of the above features but in a slightly larger package for a larger weapon. Of course smaller weapons can fit in a bigger case too so keep that in mind. The opened case measures 28″ x 32″ and is also made of the waterproof material on the previous model. There are 6 magazine pockets that will even fit 40 round AR-15 magazines. There are two 27″ long barrel or stock pockets, one 19″ long pocket (perfect for a collapsible stock AR-15 lower) and a 8″ pocket below that one. Figure that would be a perfect pocket for takedown cleaning kit or spare ammo. The outside of this case has a large loop and also 4 D-rings for attaching a sling or onto other equipment or packs.
How does everything fit you ask? Thinking of a bug out survival situation a low price Rossi rifle and shotgun barrel combination would be a solid pick for small game and even larger game or protection if needed. Below you can see the 20 gauge shotgun barrel and the .22 caliber barrel both have their own pockets separated in the 10/22 Takedown Roll-Up Case. The larger pocket the buttstock and receiver assembly has a home. There is plenty of space for a whole lot of ammo and accessories in those extra magazine pockets.
Below is what the little Rossi looks like compared to the Roll-N-Go Case. Notice how there is a lot of extra room for even more components or larger weapons. The Velcro closures keep everything in the pockets where they belong until called upon.
The larger sized AR-15 Takedown Roll-Up Case fits America’s favorite rifle quite well. When the AR’s upper and lower is taken down each piece fits nicely in separate pockets. A whole lot of firepower can be packed up and rolled tight in a small package. With just 2 takedown pins between an assembled AR-15 rifle compared to a disassembled one this would be one very handy little package to grab on the way out the door to the range or in an emergency.
The Velcro closures keep your spare ammo and accessories securely in the case when open or rolled. Below a 30 round AR-15 magazine is shown at home in it’s own pocket.
When the contents are assembled and the Roll-N-Go Cases are all rolled up the packages are nice and tight. Even though there is no bulky foam padding there is no movement to cause issues to the contents. The cases are very low profile compared to full size foam cases. Add a sling and over your back the cases ride comfortably and out of the way. Try that with any other type of gun case. These are the bug out, camping or prepping cases of choice in my honest opinion. This way you will have the weapon you need when you need it instead of it sitting at home in the gun safe.
In my testing I found the materials and stitching to be top notch for the Roll-N-Go Cases. These cases might be easily overlooked by others due to their non gun case appearances. There is plenty of room for anything you would want to pack also with the weapon and the securing straps are long enough for proper tightening. Sturdy, smaller than the regular cases when packed and less flashy. All I can say these American made cases are the best there is. There are also other colors you can order of your choice. Be sure to head over to the Roll-N-Go website and pick out your case today. They will change the way you transport your takedown long guns forever.
Update: Did I mention the extra accessories for these great cases? I was also sent a shoulder carry strap with slide gripper to keep it on your shoulder where it should be.
When attached to your Roll-N-Go Gun Case of choice it gives you the hands free carry that is of the utmost importance.
Another handy item is a regular gun sock cut down and a Velcro closure added to the open end. This gives a nice little padded case to pack your firearm assemblies and will keep scratches and dents away and still fit in the case.
The next helpful accessories are the pocket sliders. These allow the contents of the long pockets to be accessed in a quick moment. With the use of these you can put smaller accessories like small ammo boxes and such in the long pockets too. Put your barrel in one and the receiver in another. Slide them into their own pockets and have quicker access and more protection to your firearms and accessories. Either way they keep you from trying to get accouterments from the bottom of long pockets in a hurry and realize your hands are just too big.
Below we see a Stoeger Coach Gun heading into storage for transport. Using the combination of pocket sliders and the cut down gun socks offers great protection where the country might be rough.
Once again all of the great products that Roll-N-Go Gun Cases offers are American made and of high quality. Be sure to check them out for your takedown gun carry needs.
