A key to displaying firearms to potential customers, accessing them for testing or maintenance, or simply enjoying a collection is proper storage with easy accessibility. To that end many different types of gun racks have been developed and are available on this site. As with any valuable item, security is also a concern. A safe provides maximum security, but often leaves a lot to be desired when it comes to other needs. All of the gun rack designs sold on this site are intended to be used inside a secure room or for portable and/or temporary use where security is not a factor.

Compact Rotary Rack

This compact configuration has barrel notches 2.5" on center and a 1" offset from the back of the barrel notches to the back of the 5" butt slots. The top "star" is 9" smaller in diameter than the base and the barrel notches are 1 1/2" wide and 2" deep. This is suitable for most military bolt action rifles (straight bolts open) but is not spacious enough for commercial firearms with longer buttplates or firearms with fixed charging handles or scopes. The advantage is the smaller diameter of the rack which requires less space and is less expensive to purchase and ship. The disadvantage is the firearms tend to tip out when the rack is rotated and small bungee cords or straps (not included) are useful to prevent mishaps.

The bottom of the rack is two layers of 3/4" plywood with the butt slots cut through the top layer so the buttplates rest on the bottom layer. The base has a 12" diameter ball bearing swivel rated for 1,000 pounds. The center post is 2" PVC, painted flat black, which indexes over 2" discs on the base and the star. A large steel nut imbedded in the base accepts a 3/8" threaded rod which extends through the PVC pipe and protrudes through the top of the star. A threaded knob is provided to tighten everything together. Each end of the PVC pipe has a notch which fits over the head of a screw in the side of the indexing discs to line everything up properly and keep the top from rotating separately from the bottom during use. The rack is easily disassembled for transport with only the threaded knob and rod to remove and no tools required, which is convenient for temporary displays such as gun shows.

ROT Rack Assembly Instructions

Base prices are for sanded, unfinished (no paint, stain, or sealer) racks as shown above and include the 30" vertical pipe. Staining and sealing, felt, and shipping are extra. All material is 3/4" cabinet grade plywood. The amount of self adhesive 3/4" wide black felt required based on this application is listed to aid in ordering separately and is shipped on a roll for application by the customer. Racks ship disassembled and screw together by hand. For prices on custom sizes please see the Terms of Sale. All racks are produced on an as-ordered basis and typically ready for shipping in three to four weeks.
Compact Rotary Racks. 5" butt slots, 2.5" spacing between upper notches, and 1" offset from upper notch to back of lower slot. Suitable for most military bolt action rifles (straight bolts open). Not suitable for most commercial firearms with longer buttplates, firearms with fixed charging handles, or scoped firearms. See below for more spacious designs.

Compact Open Toe Rotary Rack

This style rack has the same basic dimensions as the compact rack above with the barrel notches 2.5" on center and a 1" offset from the back of the barrel notches to the back of the butt slots. The difference is the butt slots are a 4" deep open toe design and the base is 3" smaller in diameter. Because the toe of the stocks will extend beyond the edge of the rack a minimum of 1.5" must be allowed on all sides for the rack to rotate freely. The top "star" is 6" smaller in diameter than the base and the barrel notches are 1 1/2" wide and 2" deep. This is suitable for most military bolt action rifles (straight bolts open) but is not spacious enough for firearms with fixed charging handles or scopes. The advantage of this design is the lower price and shipping costs. The empty rack also takes up less space in storage and transportation if it is used for tempory displays. The disadvantage is the firearms tend to tip out when the rack is rotated and small bungee cords or straps (not included) are useful to prevent mishaps.
