Gun rack for my Foreman

Like the title says, I'm looking for a rifle rack for the front of my 2007 Foreman 500. Specifically I'm looking for a quick access rifle rack that will allow me to attach my AR-15 securely to the front rack, but also allow me to get to it easily and quickly if I see a coyote or such in the field. Anybody know of any such mounts that might work?

I dont know of a rack that is going to be that easy. Most have some sort of bungy strap that holds the rifle in place. Maybe a sling like the military uses that keeps at your chest. Just a thought

Thought about that too but I don't want the rifle beating the crap outta me when I ride. I have been looking at the Koplin and Mad Dog brands from cabelas. Might go with something like that. Just wondering if there is anything else out there.

I have just the standrad moose gun rack on mine... the 2 seperate pieces that just hold the rifle in place with each having a securing strap as well. I can strap one side and never have a problem. when I need my rifel I can reach up an unstrap the other side and have it shouldered in a matter of seconds. Really no need for anything faster.

Well the gun grips I have on mine holds my long guns just fine. I tried to put my AR in them and the mag hits the front fender before it rest in the grips. I tried it turned over and the scope hits it. So with the set up I have the grip style holder does not work.

I didn't think of the magazine and handle sticking down..... hmmmm. what about mounting the grip style mounts on your handle bars so that the magazine well and pistol grip are in between the empty space in your handle bars?

Well my AR doesn't have a scope so maybe it will work out. Eventually I'm gonna make a choice and buy a rack to try out and see how well it really works.

if the mag hits the finder then ether cary 10 round clips instead of a 30 or somehow make a riser for each grip so they set higher off the rack, just a thought

How many rounds do you need in the mag to go hunting? With a 30 rounder full I'd assume you miss a lot . Just kidding. The ratchet claw ones don't seem to have easy access but the y ones wih the strap over seem to hold the rifle fine unstrapped going slow.
