8 Best ATV Gun Rack Options

1) Graspur Gun & Bow Rack 

WildATV Rating: 4.8 out of 5

Best ATV Gun Rack

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Highest customer satisfaction
  • Universal fit
  • Easy to mount
  • Excellent value
  • Versatile
  • Rubber cushion with fins to protect mounted items
  • 360 degree rotation
  • Excellent customer support

  • Cons
  • Wingnuts may get shaken loose with rough conditions
  • Rubber snubbers could be stronger/tighter
  • Only fits tube/bars up to 1” diameter
  • Can’t be used with all cases

Flexible Design

All Rite Gun & Bow Rack has a universal fit that allows it to be used for ATVs, SxS and motorcycles. An adjustable flexible design also means that it can safely carry long guns as well as other hunting accessories and gear such as bows, fishing rods, shovels and axes.

This ATV gun rack easily attaches with steel U bolts that fit any round or square tube/bars that are 1/2” – 1” in diameter. Some big ATVs/SxS may have larger bars, so this rack wouldn’t work for these vehicles.

Strength And Protection

Aircraft grade aluminum mounting blocks with steel forks. Forks are covered in soft rubber and can fully rotate 360 degrees for mounting flexibility.

This rack may be used with some lower profile soft sided gun carriers, but the carrier could have to be thin. It definitively won’t work with hard sided gun boots.

2) Kolpin Rhino Grip – 2 Guns

WildATV Rating: 4.6 out of 5

Best ATV Gun Rack

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Best seller
  • Universal fit
  • Good value
  • Holds 2 guns
  • Can also hold fishing rods, shovels and axes
  • Can be used with virtually any vehicle
  • Works with round or square bars
  • Easy to install

  • Cons
  • No angle adjustment
  • Does not rotate
  • Rubber straps need improvement
  • Doesn’t install easily on all racks
  • Bad hardware
  • Drilling may be required on some composite racks
  • Drilling will be necessary to mount on a flat surface

Best Seller

Kolpin is well known for producing some of the best ATV gun rack and storage solutions on market.

Of all the clamp/grip style gun carriers currently available, this one by Kolpin is by far the most popular. Overall, customer satisfaction is very high. Of course, there are some unhappy buyers too, but you can’t please everyone.

Durable flexible grips with rubber straps can safely carry a wide range of items including guns, fishing poles, shovels and axes. These racks can accommodate up to 15 lbs.

Fast Easy Install (Mostly)

The flexible design of this ATV gun rack allows it to be used with virtually any type of vehicle. If you’re installing it on racks or roll bars, it will take just seconds to get it installed. The included mounting hardware fits any tubular or square bar from 5/8″-1-1/4″ in diameter. However, if you want to mount it on a flat surface, you will need to drill 4 holes to secure it in place.

Another thing to keep in mind is that you need some clearance under your gun rack in order to easily attach the hardware. The screws that are included occasionally strip when trying to tighten the lock nut.

A better solution for an easier install may be substituting U bolts for the provided installation hardware. Plus, the U bolt will work better if you have limited clearance.

Although these are advertised as having a universal fit, they’re better suited to round bars vs. square bars.

3) Kolpin UTV Gun Rack

WildATV Rating: 4.6 out of 5

Best ATV Gun Rack

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Vertical in cab mount
  • Very secure
  • Holds two guns
  • Easy gun access
  • Adjustable height
  • Well known manufacturer
  • Adjustable 45 degree angle

  • Cons
  • Some vehicles may require adjustments for installation
  • Not easy to install
  • Has to be bolted to floor
  • Rubber straps need improvement
  • Crowds the cab
  • Can’t be used with gun bags/boots
  • Only for SxS, UTVs

Kolpin Hits A Home Run

Kolpin is a respected industry leader when it comes to ATV accessories. They’re especially well known for their gun carriers and boots and this UTV gun rack is one of their best most popular.

Gun rack bolts to the UTV floor to hold one or two guns securely in even the toughest terrain. The rack height can adjust from 27-1/2″ to 35-1/2″, plus it can angle up to 45 degrees in either direction

Difficult Installation

The biggest draw back to this rack is the installation. That fact that it is bolted to the floor is what makes it so secure, but not everyone is comfortable drilling holes in their floor.

Another potential negative is that installation isn’t straight forward for all vehicles. This gun rack can only be installed on a flat surface. So, if you own a vehicle with a center transmission hump you will need to also purchase a gun rack mount adapter riser (20074) or fabricate your own work around.

4) Seizmik UTV In Cab On Seat Gun Holder

WildATV Rating: 4.5 out of 5

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Installs instantly
  • Universal fit
  • Keeps guns safely pointed down
  • Closed cell foam cradle
  • Holds 2 guns

  • Cons
  • Only for SxS, UTVs
  • Not entirely “universal”
  • A seat belt is required to secure this gun rack
  • Works best with a lap seat belt vs. a shoulder/lap (3 point) seat belt

Great Features

Honestly, it doesn’t get much easier as far as installation go – you put it on the seat, run a seat belt through it, click it and BOOM done. Hard to beat that!

The best thing about this gun rack is that it holds guns in a downward position which is the safest way possible to carry a gun.

Guns are kept well protected in a foam channel while secured in place with nylon straps.

“Universal” Fit

For the most part, this gun rack is pretty universal. It will fit most ATVs, SUVs and even full sized cars and trucks. It will work on almost any vehicle that has a seat and a seat belt. However, as with all “one size fits all” solutions, there are always situations where it may not work.

This item is generally advertised as for use with a middle seat, but if you have a center transmission hump or a particularly long gun, this rack may not work for you. Also, if you have a smaller cab it may not work.

5) Great Day Quick-Draw Overhead Gun Rack

WildATV Rating: 4.4 out of 5

Best ATV Gun Rack

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Easy installation
  • No drilling or bolting required
  • Can carry two firearms
  • Made in the USA
  • Soft cradle
  • Adjustable length
  • Can accommodate big guns

  • Cons
  • Only for SxS, UTVs, Jeeps
  • Must have roll bar
  • Holds guns horizontal

Made In The USA

The best feature of roll bar gun storage is that it frees up space while keeping the guns secure and out of the way. The Power-Ride Gun Rack fits most popular brands of UTVs. They have several different model sizes which are based on your roll bar configuration.

Install this rack in seconds – just drop the rack over the roll bar, tighten the wing nuts and it’s ready to go.

Soft flexible cradles can accommodate nearly any size long gun. Velcro straps keep the cradle tight for a secure mount.

Great Day Inc. proudly makes this gun rack in the USA.

Gun Safety…?

Although horizontal gun mounts have been used for years, some people don’t view it as optimal from a safety point of view. You never point a gun, even an unloaded gun, at anything you’re not intending to kill.

So, even though you may be transporting weapons unloaded with the safety on, horizontal gun gun storage points the weapon at anyone who is along side you.

6) Big Sky Overhead Gun Rack 

WildATV Rating: 4.8 out of 5

Best ATV Gun Rack

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Fits most SxS/UTVs
  • Telescoping length to fit most vehicles and guns
  • Frees up cab space
  • Holds two guns
  • Length or width mount

  • Cons
  • Expensive
  • Not always easy to install
  • Need to screw in place
  • Only for SxS, UTVs
  • Won’t be ideal for low cabs or tall people

Safe From Prying Eyes

A roof rack keeps your guns safe and secure while also keeping them out of view from the casual observer. With most vehicles, when viewing from a distance or looking straight in the window, an overhead gun rack is hard to see.

Holes In The Roof….?

How is this rack installed? Well, since each vehicle is different, you may have to work this out on your own. Vehicles without double-wall construction will require through-the-roof or through-the-sidewall mounting.

You can find work arounds by removing the backseat handholds and using those holes to secure the rack. But, this may or may not work with your vehicle.

So, if you’re not comfortable drilling holes in your nice shiny vehicle, this may not be the gun rack for you.

Depending on the design of your vehicle and/or gun length, you have the option of installing this rack length-wise or width-wise on the roof.

Big Sky does make an easier to install version of this rack specifically for UTVs. It has mounting bracket to attach to roll bars. You can check it out here: Big Sky Overhead UTV Gun Rack

7) Black Boar ATV Gun Case

WildATV Rating: 4.6 out of 5

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Over 2,400 feedbacks
  • Fits firearms up to 51″ in total length
  • Extra room for pistol grips & small bi-pods
  • Can be locked
  • Easy installation
  • Removable foam impact liner
  • Attachment points for a sling
  • Works with left and right hand bolt action rifles and shotguns
  • Enough room for 50mm scopes or rifles with slings attached
  • Protects weapon from dust and moisture
  • All mounting hardware included

  • Cons
  • Can only hold one gun
  • Not waterproof
  • Needs a better liner
  • May need to add some additional padding to fully secure gun
  • No quick direct access to weapon
  • Must remove sling and bipod 

Lockable Gun Boot

One of the best features of an enclosed ATV gun case is the ability to lock it and keep your weapons secure. Obviously this security comes at the expense of quick gun access.

Guns are held securely in place in a padded case. The case keeps it out of the weather and protects it from dirt, grit and flying rocks.

Brackets Included And I Like It

I like that the mounting brackets are included. I’m not a fan of having to buy separate parts.

This gun case is advertised as “dust and water resistant” and it is. As long as the gun case doesn’t get fully submerged, it will provide good weather protection. I just wish it were 100% waterproof! This isn’t a negative reflection on Black Boar – none of the other gun cases are waterproof either.

Ideally, you’d like to get something that works “right out of the box”, but life isn’t always like that. With this gun case, you may find the “impact liner” insufficient, it’s just a thin foam liner. You may need to add some extra padding.

With the multitude of vehicles and guns out there, it’s near impossible to find a gun boot or rack that is going to work for 100% of all users, so you may need to make some slight modifications. But, a tweak here, some padding there and it could be perfect.

8) Kolpin Stronghold ATV Gun Case XL

WildATV Rating: 4.6 out of 5

Pros and Cons

  • Pros
  • Largest interior of all Kolpin Gun Cases
  • Hinged lid for quick access
  • Integrated rubber closure strap
  • Can be locked to Kolpin Stronghold auto-latch mounts
  • Easy access door
  • Removable zippered soft case with 2 external pockets & rubber muzzle cap
  • Soft case has customizable fit foam inserts and handles
  • Hard case has handle and feet
  • Meets TSA guidelines for air travel
  • Universal mount system
  • Fits most ATV tubular racks
  • Cons
  • Only holds one gun
  • Brackets not included
  • Not waterproof
  • No quick direct access to weapon
  • If you want to mount it on a flat surface, you will need to drill
  • Can be a bit of struggle to get your gun out
  • Must remove sling and bipod 
  • Not made in the USA

Convenient Universal Mount System

This Kolpin gun case works with the Stronghold universal mounting system that works for several gun attachments and boots. In the winter, the mount can also be used with an ice auger boot or ice rod boot.

Have gun will travel

The best feature of this ATV gun case is that it meets TSA guidelines for air travel. If you ever plan on a dream trip to Alaska or moose hunting in Maine, this feature could come in handy.

This hard case comes with a removeable soft sided case with carrying handles. This case is a nice feature and can be used on it’s own. The Interior bag has customizable fit foam inserts and a couple external pockets.

Kolpin has been in business since 1973 – they’re a well know respected industry leader of outdoor equipment. They stand by their products and returns are easy.

Other Kolpin gun boots are advertised as manufactured in the USA which is a huge selling point for me. Unfortunately this one isn’t advertised as made in the US, so I’m assuming it’s not.
