SBR Case Features

SBR Bag Outline

Purpose Built Interior

The Bureau has a streamlined, functional, purpose-built interior. We crafted this bag with the end user in mind. We wanted to ensure there were plenty of storage options and the perfect amount of weapon retention. This case was created for the SBR or pistol AR of your choice and should fit any 10.5″ or shorter barreled rifle.

SBR Case Dimensions

We went to great lengths to make sure we had the perfect measurements for our discreet SBR case. We factored in the most popular SBR barrel lengths as well as overall lengths. The Bureau is 30 inches long, 4 inches wide, and 12 inches tall. SBR Bag Measurements

Purpose Built Case

The Bureau rifle case was specifically designed to fit Short Barreled Rifles(SBR), AR Pistols, and Personal Defense Weapons(PDW) with or without a Pistol Stabilizing Brace. The Bureau is ideally designed to securely protect your firearms and necessary shooting accessories, such as magazines and ammo.


The interior dimensions of the Bureau are 30.5 inches long, 3 inches wide, and 12 inches tall, this discreet rifle case will accommodate rifles with collapsible stocks, folding stocks, and most rifles with barrels under 10.5 inches.

Tough Construction

We chose long-lasting Cordura Fabric for the Bureau. We wanted to make sure it was built to the highest quality standards.

Built-In Toughness

Much like The Bronx, we don’t want your rifle to be at the mercy of the elements so we use 1″ thick hardened foam to make this bag rock solid.

Sling Style Carry

Two External D-Rings allow versatility of strap placement; shoulder carry or quiver carry (sling). With The Bureau’s no-slip strap pad, it will carry great no matter if you shoulder carry or sling carry.

Discreet Everyday Design

Our classic low-profile design for this rifle case is discreet and designed for those looking for something less tactical and in-your-face. But less tactical doesn’t mean less storage. We’ve added a large exterior pocket to store your must-have accessories and keep them within arm’s reach.

Modular Attachment System

We don’t believe in wasted space at Lynx Defense. That’s why we included a full hook & loop back wall of the bag, which acts as a modular attachment system to safely attach extra pockets, medical kits, or whatever else you may need without worrying about damaging your firearm.

2 x Internal Zipper Pockets

Magazines, ammo, hearing protection, and more can all be stored inside The Bureau with our two separate internal zipper pockets. These pockets provide ample storage for your everyday carry and range needs. The pockets span the full length of the lid panel and are separated in the middle providing two individual pockets.

3 x Configurable Security Straps

Storing your firearm with standard-issue security straps can be frustrating, especially when they’re not in the right place. Our three interior straps are configurable, so you can control how many straps to use and when to use them.

The Covert SBR Case Built for You!

Since releasing The Bureau in March 2020, it has quickly grown to be one of our most popular cases. We are excited to continue to make a world-class range of gear for our customers. If you are still deciding what case to purchase, see why we recommend a discreet rifle case.

Handcrafted in the USA

Every Lynx Defense bag is carefully constructed in Selma, North Carolina.

Made With 1000D Cordura Fabric

This SBR bag is made with 1000D Cordura Brand fabric, which means it will stand the test of time and provide fantastic protection for your short-barrel rifle.

Fully Modular SBR Case

Creating a bag that will fit every firearm is impossible. But creating a bag to fit most firearms is what we strive to do. We have also focused on ensuring that every user of The Bureau rifle case can customize it to their specific needs. We created a full velcro loop back wall to allow you to put anything from our line of attachments to your own attachments, morale patches, and more.


Our Cases are Under Promised. Overbuilt.

Our number one priority in all of our products is durability. We double-stitch our bags to ensure that they will last. We are so confident in our products we back them with a lifetime manufacturer’s warranty.

You’ve done the research and work it takes to acquire a short barrel rifle, so you want to make sure you protect it with the best Short Barrel Rifle case available on the market. Don’t purchase a case for your SBR without first considering these four features.

In true Lynx Defense fashion, The Bureau is handmade in the United States of America.

Tailored Fit For Your SBR

When it comes to securing and carrying your short-barrel rifle or AR pistols, make sure it’s not sliding around in a case or an old duffel bag that wasn’t made to accommodate it.

Cases 30 inches in length and at least 12 inches tall make a great fit for SBRs or any rifle with a collapsible or folding stock. A shorter gun case ensures a proper fit, and secure storage, which takes up less cargo space while you’re carrying.

If you have a rifle with a collapsible stock with a 10.5″ barrel or less, you might consider an even smaller case, such as The Byte, specifically crafted for submachine guns.

Plus, a smaller case makes it easier to store your gun case when it’s not in use.

SBR Case Padding

Protecting your short barrel rifle is extremely important, so the foam, or padding, that your case has is a make-or-break part of your rifle case.

Ensuring your SBR is secure from movement and accidental damage doesn’t happen in transit is key.

SBR Case Retention

Making sure your SBR is strapped and secure in the bag is essential. We include three modular straps that allow you to configure your rifle retention in any way you see fit.

We designed our bag because all SBR configurations needed to fit in The Bureau.

Tactical Case vs Discreet Case

Consider where you will carry your firearm and what kind of attention it might bring. For those carrying to the range or routine training, you probably prefer a more tactical gun case that offers protection from rugged terrain and plenty of storage and customization features for morale patches.

For those carrying to prepare and protect, a discreet SBR case that offers the specific storage needed for safely transporting your weapon with a casual exterior that blends in would best suit your carrying needs.

Practical Storage Solutions

Transporting your firearm is pointless if you can’t carry everything you need to go with it. Ammo, magazines, and hearing protection, to name a few.

You want to choose the SBR bag that can accommodate everything you need while storing it securely. Whether you need ammo pouches, adjustable strap configurations, a hook, and a loop system to tack things into your bag, don’t overlook how important it is to have the equipment you need when using your SBR available at a moment’s notice.

The top 3 things we make sure we have in our case are:

  • Magazines
  • Ammo
  • Required/Emergency Tools (To include oil/barrel snake/etc.)

These three things are the most important items to carry in any firearms case.

Case Durability

There’s a reason shooters outgrow their old gym bags when carrying high-powered guns. Those bags weren’t made to last, and they weren’t made to haul firearms and ammo.

When researching SBR cases, we recommend looking for high-quality bags and cases, like 1000D Cordura. Make sure the bag is double stitched for the most reliable carrying.

We also believe in purchasing products with lifetime manufacturer warranties to protect your investment best.
