Nice High-Capacity Soft Case on Sale

These days, many varmint hunters outfit their rigs much like long-range benchrest guns. You’ll find long barrels with muzzle brakes, “long-wheelbase” stocks with wide fore-ends, and big optics (such as the NightForce NXS) with tall “target” turrets. That all adds up to a pretty sizeable package, particularly if you throw a bipod on the front end. Most soft rifle cases won’t fit these modern jumbo varmint rifles very well. The cases are too short and don’t have enough clearance for a big scope.

Allen Legend Endura Rifle Case

The Bob Allen 48″-long “Legend” soft case is an exception. Nice and tall, it will fit a heavy varmint rig with a big scope with room to spare. 48 inches in length, it will house rifles with up to 28″ barrels (unless you have an extended buttplate). The Allen Legend features an Endura shell, wrap-around handles and 1″ foam padding. Nebraskan D. McClain reports: “This case is really nice. It fits my Savage 12BVSS with Harris bipod and large scope with sunshade like a glove. I would recommend this case for similar set-up rifle to anyone.” Right now through the end of June, 2007, MidwayUSA is selling the 48″ Allen Legend case (item 717607) in black/Advantage Camo for $24.99–that’s $6.00 off the regular price. This writer has a number of Allen soft cases and they are well made, with strong zippers and good stitching.
