Polaris RZR Gun Racks: Top 3 Ways To Mount Your Firearms
While most hunters who buy a UTV exclusively to hunt go with a more utility-focused machine, many Polaris RZR owners use their rigs when hunting. And whether you pack a glock for emergency situations or a rifle for hunting, keeping your firearms safe, protected, and out of the way yet easily accessible is always important. Sometimes, tucking your gun between the seat and center console just doesn’t cut it.
And while some RZR marksmen choose to keep their firearms in the cab with the barrel on the floor and the action against the seat, there are better ways to tote your guns for quick access -- that way, when you see something good to eat like a coon, possum, or squirrel crossing the road, you can cut hard to the left, make a quick shot out the passenger side, and be cooking some greasy coon over a bonfire in no time.
All jokes aside, here are our top 3 picks for RZR gun racks, because the last thing you need when you’re packing heat is to have your guns rattling around, getting damaged, or god forbid going off unintentionally.
The Quick-Draw Overhead RZR Gun Rack by the UTV experts at Great Day is the perfect way to safely keep your firearms at your fingertips. The Quick-Draw rack secures up to two guns using its super soft rubber gun clips and is available in three different models. It is also designed with a unique mounting system that requires no drilling or bolting. Simply spin the tightening nuts, strap down the barrel, and lock the stock. The fasteners can be undone in a matter of seconds, so when you see that perfect buck, you’ll have him between your crosshairs in no time at all.
For all the parents out there, this is a particularly useful gun rack to keep your weapons out of reach. However, it may not work with banana clips or large magazines -- 10 rounders work, but it gets a bit iffy when you get up to 30-round mags. We suggest to keep the mag on the dash or in the glove box and insert it after you remove the gun from the rack.
Similar to the Quick-Draw gun rack, Kolpin’s RZR Gun Mount is easy to install and remove and holds up to two rifles safely and securely. Unlike the Quick-Draw rack, however, Kolpin’s gun holder doesn’t affix your firearms overhead, but rather, in the center console or the rear cargo bed. It doesn’t matter if you’re going duck hunting with a 20-gauge pump action shotgun or elk hunting with a 30-30 Winchester rifle, this gun mount can hold down virtually any caliber firearm.
The Stronghold Double Boot Mount by Kolpin Powersports separates itself from the competition by being a fast and trustworthy way to hold gun scabbards and cases -- presumably with guns inside. Unlike the aforementioned RZR gun racks, the Stronghold Double Boot Mount is specifically made for the rear of the vehicle -- either in the bed or above the bed on the back of the cab. It uses a telescoping frame to fit a range of bed sizes between 41” and 55”, so whatever RZR model you have, this gun rack will fit nice and snug.
Because this gun rack is made specifically for guns inside their cases, it works wonders against fine powder and sand. Many hunters we know that leave their guns in the case and unload them at the deer stand encounter leases with a lot of dust. And for most guns, dust -- coupled with a lack of oil -- is a major cause of jamming and other malfunctions.
Bonus Gun Case
We can’t end our top 3 RZR gun rack article without touching on at least one gun case. And the top selling case at Everything Polaris RZR is QuadBoss’ Reflective Gun Scabbard. Strap it to the roll cage, affix it overhead in the cab, or cinch it down tight in the cargo bed, the versatility of this case makes it almost a rack in and of itself. Plus, it’s external pockets are
