Our 2017 Polaris Ranger XP 1000 Hunter Edition came equipped with the factory rack-mounted gun boots. Great concept except for the fact that the boots are not large enough to accommodate many of the guns we hunt with. For example, I am currently running a suppressed Bergara HMR 6.5 Creedmoor with a Nightforce NXS scope. It simply will not fit in the standard Polaris boot.
Our hunting lease south of San Antonio is in the “Sand Hills.” It is very dry and dusty and the dust gets into everything. It is a necessity to have your rifle cased when driving, otherwise the rifle and optics get coated in this fine dust.
The good folks at Kolpin were kind enough to send me their extra-large Stronghold Gun Boot featuring the Transport soft case. They also included both the Polaris Lock & Ride and Universal Auto Latch mounts.
