Any chance you guys might come up with a detachable gun carrier kind of similar to the one on this pack.

Where it's like a "sleeve" that would attach with MALICE or MOLLE onto the front or side of a pack?

I wonder if a modular beavertail would do the trick.

pathfinder74--

There are a couple of manufacturers doing "accessable sleeves"...I think Crooked Horn is the other one. Since developing the GunBearer approach to carrying a long gun I've not been interested in the sleeve approach. Too slow, the ingress/egress movements are too gross, too apt to hang up on tree limbs, etc., etc.
If you haven't actually used our GunBearer I suggest you do so--check it out and then mentally compare it to carrying the gun in the sleeved manner. Then, if you're still interested in the sleeve system let me know. If access-with-the-pack-on is not an issue--you're just looking to carry the rifle on the pack, not at-the-ready-- take a look at our Auxilliary Holster, which is a lot lighter and more compact than a sleeve. And will still work quite well with any padded device you may be using to protect the rifle, if protection is the ultimate issue. (And the padded device can stay with the rifle when you're not carrying it on a mission.) Bottom line: I think we have you covered already. But let me know if I'm missing something--we definitely aim to cover all aspects of carrying a man's combat gear in the very best manner--it's what we're about.

Accessibility is not an issue. More for transporting.

It's not somethign I plan on using frequently, if ever, so it's not a huge issue for me. I was thinking something along the lines of either sheethed with some sort of flap cover over the opening, or maybe even some sort of pouch/sleeve that woudl allow for a broken down M4. I'm thinking more in terms of discreet, non-attention drawing type as opposed to at the ready.

Anywho... just throwing idears around more than anything else.

Thanks guys.

What would you recommend for a larger rifle system that weights 15-20lbs and is normally carried in a “drag bag” that also doubles as a shooting mat for laying prone for long periods of time on rocks or snow?

Is there some way that a Marauder or Express bag could be mounted on an EMR frame and the drag bag slid in between the bag and frame?

Hey kettlebel, you can attach the Marauder/Express to an EMR frame and carry your drag bag between. Just use one of our Horizontal Lash Kits to attach the pack to the EMR frame, and you'll want to run the straps from the lash kit thru handles, d-rings, or webbing on the drag bag for a secure mount. Hope I explained it right /images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/smile.gif .

Thanks Mel! I will put an order in within a week or so and give it a try.

How would you compare the Marauder with the Express for this type of set-up? When would you prefer one over the other?

kettlebell, I really think it comes down to what pack best meets YOUR needs, as they would mount equally well to the EMR frame.

Kettlebell,

Please post some pics when you got the rig (EMR, Dragbag, Maurader/Express) done. I would love to see how it all ends up:)
