Motorcycle rifle scabbards?

Googled around and found lots of places that make rifle slings/scabbards for horses. Yet to find anything specific for a bike.

Anybody have any ideas/sites?

years ago I had a hard plastic(?) case like the high tek guitar cases. It was made by Koplin, and was called the "Koplin Gun Boot" ,,pretty cool, hauled my Husqvarna .270 Winchester with it. Sadly, it was not theft-proof.

Many years ago a friend of mine used a Kolpin attached to the front of his KLR600 (yes they were 600's before they were 650's) for a trip to Alaska, I think he hauled a shotgun for protection!!!! from what I dunno.
I see you have several reply's about the Kolpin, For what it's worth.

scabbard idea is good, i just don't like the fact I have to advertise. I want to ride and hunt varmits out in the high plains here in oregon. A motorcycle is the most efficent way to do it( considering summer gas prices). I wish the pic offered earily in the thread worked I'm intrested in how it looks and fits on the bike.

The Kolpin gun boot is on sale at wallyland
http://www.walmart.com/catalog/produ...uct_id=4630449

I used one a bunch on a snowmachine, hunting in Northwest AK. Protected my fancy .375 scoped Winchester model 70 very well. Easy to use an keeps the rifle clean and dry.

I found that when I ratchet-strapped my .22LR case to my backrest, cars gave me a much wider birth.

Mind you I'm now looking at ATV stuff to mount it more or less vertically, so its not so wide.

I've never found anything that is specific for motorcycles, but some of the horse rifle scabbards, and other rifle/shotgun cases can be modified. Years ago, I made up something using some PVC pipe, felt, and carpet to carry my shotgun to the sporting clays club on my cruiser.

Hey Velo...

The Kolpin Gun Boots work well if you're looking to carry a scoped bolt gun, and they make a selection of mounting brackets too... all for ATV though.
Montana Jack's seems to have the best prices.
I'd have some issues with a soft case on a motorcycle, unlike horses, motorcycles fall over all too frequently.

What rifle, what bike? To know might give me a better idea of what you're trying to accomplish.

Scabbard for motorcycle

What Creeper said.

Depends if you are using a Lever gun, bolt ( Most scabbards are sold
for rife action/barrel length) and scoped/non-scoped.

If it is strictly off-road, you could adapt a leather case or a molded case.

I'd check Cabellas Catalog...

The Hunter brand "Ruffstuff" scabbards are a heavy duty semi-soft case that come with a bunch of straps for lashing it down to this, that and the other thing.
The Weaver brand harness leather scabbards are pretty heavy duty as well.

I'm not going to offer a link, because sizes, vendors and pricing is all over the map.

Rotsa ruck,
C

I used a leather saddle boot (scabbard) with top and bottom attachments on my old XL-250...but that's been 30+ years ago.
