Elite Survival Systems is introducing a new soft-padded, low-visibility rifle case for modern bullpup rifles such as the IWI Tavor, Steyr AUG/A3, FN F2000/FS2000, Springfield Armory Helion, and any other bullpup rifle with an overall length of no more than 30 inches.

Designed with ample room in its primary compartment, the Covert Operations Discreet Case can stow a bullpup rifle with a mounted optic and an inserted magazine. Tie down hook and loops straps are used to secure the end user’s rifle and accessories of choice inside of the case. Included with this case is a removable internal magazine pouch that holds up to six standard 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. caliber magazines or up to three 7.62 NATO/.308 Win. caliber standard magazines.

Internally the case features a grey lining to allow for contrast and visibility between the contents and the case itself. Externally, the Covert Operations Discreet Case is black and ships with a two-inch padded shoulder strap and wrap around handles. Elite Survival Systems also offers additional hook and loop accessory attachments that are compatible with the Covert Operations Discreet Case.

Not only is the case enclosed with 3/8-inch closed cell heavy duty foam padding, it is constructed from 1000 denier nylon and reinforced with double row stitching. All internal seams in the case are bound and all hardware and zippers are of the heavy duty YKK brand—these design elements ensure that the Covert Operations Discreet Case also offers rugged protection in addition to discreet portability.

Since one of the most important attributes of any bullpup rifle is its compact size, the Covert Operations Discreet Case coming in at only 30 inches long, 13 inches tall, and 3 1/2 inches wide readily helps the end user maintain their low visibility requirements. While having the case zipped up, a quick glance will not scream “tactical item” by not having any MOLLE loops or a different color.

The Covert Operations Discreet Case retails for $159.99 and is backed by Elite Survival System’s Lifetime Guarantee. For more information on this soft padded bullpup rifle case and other Elite Survival Systems products, please visit
