Before you start, gather together the following materials:
- gun case
- line fabric
- measuring tape
- upholstery pins
- Measure the length and width of your gun case. Cut a piece of lining fabric to these dimensions, plus 1/2 inch on all sides.
- Center the fabric wrong side up on the bottom of the case. Pin in place along all four edges.
- Fold one short edge of the fabric up 1/2 inch and press with an iron. Then fold it up another 1/2 inch and press again. Repeat on the other short edge.
- Fold one long edge of the fabric over 1/2 inch, then again over 1/2 inch. Pin in place.
- Sew a seam along both short edges and one long edge, using a 1/4-inch seam allowance. Start and stop your stitching 1/2 inch from each end of the fabric to create a 1-inch gap.
- Trim the corners of the fabric at an angle, making sure not to cut through the stitching.
- Turn the fabric right side out through the opening in the long edge seam. Press flat with your hands, then uses an iron to press the seams open.
- Insert your gun into the case and close the opening in the seam.
That’s it! Your gun case is now ready to use.
There are a few different ways that you can line a gun case, but the most common method is to use some sort of soft fabric. This will help to protect your guns from scratches and other damage that can occur during transport. Many people opt for a Polar fleece material, as it is relatively inexpensive and does an excellent job at cushioning firearms. Simply cut the fabric to size and then glue or tape it into place. Be sure to allow for some extra fabric at the edges so that you can tuck it in and secure it properly. Once you have your lining in place, you’re ready to load up your guns and head out!
Assuming you have a soft gun case, the process for lining it is quite simple. All you need is some fabric, batting, and adhesive spray.
First, measure the inside of your case and cut the fabric and batting to size. Make sure to leave enough extra fabric to tuck in around the edges.
Next, Spray the adhesive onto the inside of the gun case, being careful not to get any on the outside of the case or your firearms. Adhere the batting to the sprayed area, then lay down your fabric on top of that and smooth it out. Trim off any excess fabric around the edges.
Now fold over the edges of the fabric and adhere them down with more adhesive spray. This will create a nice, clean finished look and help keep the fabric in place.
Your gun case is now lined and ready to protect your firearms!
There are a few things you’ll need to line a gun case: fabric, supplies to attach the fabric to the case (tape, glue, etc.), and padding. Once you have these items, lining a gun case is relatively straightforward:
- Cut the fabric to size. You’ll want to make sure that the fabric is big enough to span the entire interior of the case, with a little bit of extra material on all sides so that it can be glued or taped into place.
- Attach the fabric to the case. This can be done with adhesive tape, glue, or any other method you prefer. Just make sure that the fabric is securely attached and won’t come loose.
- Add padding. This step is optional, but if you want your gun case to be extra cushioned, you can line it with foam or another padding. This will help protect your gun and keep it from shifting around inside the case.
- That’s it! Once you’ve lined the case, it’s ready to use. You can now store your gun in the case knowing that it’s well-protected.
Gun cases are a great way to keep your firearms safe and protected. By following the steps above, you can easily line a gun case with fabric, padding, or other materials to ensure that your gun is always well-cushioned and protected. Thanks for reading!
There are a few things to keep in mind when lining a gun case:
- Make sure the case is big enough for the gun. It should be at least six inches longer than the gun, and four inches wider.
- Choose a soft case material that won’t scratch or wear down the finish of the gun.
- Cut the foam liner to fit snugly inside the case, leaving about an inch of space all around for padding.
- Glue or tape the liner in place, making sure that it is level and there are no gaps.
- Rest the gun on top of the liner, again making sure there is an inch of space all around for padding.
- Add more foam padding on top of the gun if necessary, and then close the case.
