An essential component of your air rifle kit is your air rifle case, so we've selected some of the best options.

When it comes to pest control or stalking in the field, any keen Shot will tell you that you should only take what you need, because you don’t want to be weighed down by unnecessary gear when you’re several miles away from the car. Not only that, you need something that is practical and lightweight, but also durable and resistant to the elements so that you can keep your air rifle clean and ready for action.

To that point, our resident air rifle expert Mat Manning said: “All airgun shooters should have a bag to carry their rifle when transporting it, and there is a real wealth of options to choose from in the shops. A key consideration for first-time buyers is the depth of the bag, as airguns can be very wide-sided by the time they have a scope attached. Fortunately, there are plenty of purpose-made bags that take this into account.”

So what are the options for the best air rifle case? Don’t miss our top picks below.
