You can put up pegboard on the walls and use various hooks and hangars that interface with the holes. Or you can just build vertical wall racks for long guns similar to what you see at armorys and gun stores.

Yeah I really didnt want to go with the peg board as the walls are freshly painted. I did however come across this. http://www.traditionalwoodworker.com...roducts_id/529

Should be able to use it to make some nice wood blocks shaped to each rifle where it will contact it. Well see how it works.

That is pretty slick. 40 bucks a piece tho and looks to only work with AR rifles.

My dad use to have his black powder collection on the wall, Very nice looking! he just used large nails. but with black powder it looked appropriate, I mean how would they have hung them back in the cabin?

My dad also had a deer that his grandfather shot in the Auburn Ravine back at the turn of the century, we had the deer hung above the fire place, and had his Kentucky Long Rifle propped up over the neck of the deer.

Sadly my stepmother will not let him display the guns or the deer. I'm sure they are in storage at this point.

I used to work at a company with a display wall for our products.. after we moved locations I asked if I could have the display "boards" (as you can see they're not really boards). These were perfect as my bedroom closet had simple screw/plastic "mounts" for the shelves. I removed the shelves and simply plopped these "boards" up against the wall... amazing luck since the height of the mounts fit perfectly on one of the horizontal bars on the "boards."



Clean and simple, albeit airsoft guns.

edit* Unfortunately, I can't seem to find what these would be called... "wall display fencing" doesn't seem to turn up anything.

Those are called "wall rack systems" according to my mom who used to have some for her business. They're not easily commercially available, you have to buy them direct from a dealer or get them second-hand.

get some earth magnets that are the doughnut style ( Round with a hole inthe middle. Find a stud and put two of them on there. The stick the gun on the magnet. you can cover the magnet with a piece of cloth so you wont scratch the rifle. The gun will look liek its stuck to the wall
Earth magnets are super storng. They can hold a lot of weight.

just don't have electronics near that wall.... at least ones that get affected by strong magnetic forces.

When I walked into this thread, I was under the impression that someone wanted to make some sort of castle type fort with .50 cals mounted on the walls. Hrmm...

I just ended up doing this because it's the cheapest thing I could think of.

I'm thinking about one of these to mount an M91-30 over my fireplace mantle:

Some $10 shotgun-type model with a detachable mag and collapsible stock, possibly UTG.

Well theire strong but not that strong. i mean a small earth magnet the size of a quarter wont pull you across the room by your belt buckle. Unless the electronics are really really close ( i cant see how that would be) by close I mean within a foot or so.
