Exclusive: Photos of a Flying Circle AR-15 Case [Review]

Flying Circle’s Scoped Carbine Case (retail $62 + $10 for optional monogramming) works and feels like a case costing much more. Look at this list of features from the Flying Circle website:

 

  • Fits most scoped carbine rifles up to 33.5″ in length
  • Extra thick padding throughout
  • Locking zippers on weapon compartment (locks not included)
  • Tactile zipper pulls – different pulls on weapon & accessory pocket allow easy identification by feel
  • MOLLE webbing – attach any compatible pouches or gear
  • Padded extra large side pocket features 6 double stack mag pouches, plus plenty of room for binoculars, etc.
  • Small side zipper pocket for other accessories
  • Sling style padded shoulder strap is adjustable & detachable
  • Grab handle on both ends
  • Large D-ring for hanging storage
  • Vehicle Attachment System (VAS) – unique 4 point adjustable webbing & side release buckles secure the case to SUV/ATV roll cage or cargo rack keeping your rifle safe, yet easily accessible
  • Water resistant, durable polyester fabric

This case accompanied me to a Gunsite 123 Carbine class in Lebanon, Ind., a few weeks ago, and was loaded pretty much like you see it here.

Here’s the six magazine zippered pouch. Those are standard 30-round AR-15 magazines, each with its own hook and loop strap to keep the mags in place. Organized, durable, handy.

Tough zippers and MOLLE webbing throughout enhance the durable fabric. There are no weak spots on this bag.

Carry it on your person with the padded shoulder strap or latch it to your ATV or SUV cargo rack with the four adjustable straps.

While in use at Gunsite, some of the buckles got scuffed and the bag spent some time in the dirt. The loop strap coming off the end is very handy for retrieving the case from the trunk of car or hanging the case from a peg in a closet.

And, just for fun, here’s quick shot of a 2A Arms rifle with an Eotech optic. You’ll have to wait for the full story on those. But it’s safe to say those items are in the bag.
