    interesting concept, could be a market there. get rid of all the tactikool bits like the laces for tying on camo... WTF but the basic concept of a padded rifle bag to fold out with a few pockets for ammo rear bag etc is solid

    Don't want to derail the (quite old) thread, but I've got one of these. VISM - RIFLE CASE/SHOOTING MAT ~ O54/G - $140.00 : Quartermaster Supplies
    Cheap Chinese made thing, but is awesome, agree it could be another product if there were a demand for it.

    Thanks for the input @Beetroot and @Tombi we have made a couple of long range rifle bags and a variation on a shooting mat. Our biggest hurdle is costs. We made a couple of padded M4/AR and Rifle carry/storage bags and the costs were around $250-300 with basic features. Now if we were to look into this further we can bring costs down but getting confirmed orders in advance, like what we did with the stock packs. What is does is that it spreads the cost of R & D, sampling, testing over the entire order bringing the overall cost per product down dramatically. We are keen to produce and design new products so if these items are something people are keen on then we can look into it further if we can get some numbers behind it. The same goes across the board with other products you guys buy from overseas which you would like to see here, open to suggestions. We will look into the suppressor cover further as we have had a lot of requests for this.

    Another thing for all you multi-gun, 3-gun and pistol shooters to consider with help from @twinneedle

    The guys and girls there custom made some molle sections to fit over a bunnings $35 fold up trolly for me. Throw a few pouches on and you have a range trolley cheaper than you can import a DAA one or the like. Works a treat.

    How are people finding their stock packs? What are the benefits of using one?

    Curious as well, thinking of getting one but wonder if it's just a gimmick

    I have one without the pocket on my 22LR. I have quite a large scope on my 22LR and so the stock pack helps to increase the height of the stock for a better check weld. My rifle is heavy enough without giving it a pocket where I can put more stuff... I like the Velcro space on the side of the stock as well for a NZ flag, a GPR Events logo or a set of bullet loops for additional ammunition.

    I have a stock pack simply because I like how it feels on my cheek.
    I keep a nylon pull through and microfiber cloth inside it.
    Pengy and Happy like this.
