Caldwell Brass Catcher

by Larry Longobardi, from United States, CA Written on August 29, 2014
There have been two problems. The metal frame had to be significantly bent to avoid the turret on my optic. Also the unit needs a lever activated tightening device as after a couple of rounds the basket gets knocked off of the picatinny rail. I am shooting a DPMS 6.5 with a vortex scope. I think once I add something to hold it on the rail this item should function well. I hate throwing brass at the poor guy next to me....

GREAT upgrade to the velcro version!

by Cobraguy, from United States, ID Written on August 29, 2014
Was having trouble with one of the wrap around the forearm with Velcro brass catchers slipping and interfering with ejection and causing stoppages. Put this one on and have not had any problems, works great....

Catcher with internal wire frame

by Red, from New Zealand, CANTERBURY Written on August 29, 2014
This is an excellent piece of kit, quick and easy to set up and use, works very well. Much better than their other model with velcro tape. Can inhibit finding the mag release button, but I think the more you use it, the less that will be an issue....

Caldwell Brass Catcher

by advantage1one, from United States, CA Written on August 15, 2014
Excellent product. Works perfectly. With the picatinny mount it is easy on and easy off to empty a few cases or up to about 30 cases. Optics Planet delivered quickly and their shipment notice program is great. They keep you informed about every step of the purchase and delivery. Buy this product from Optics Planet and you won't be disappointed....

Best brass catcher on the market

by Legacy Reviewer, from United States, GA Written on January 8, 2014
I've used the velcro style brass catcher for a while. It did the job but did not stay in place real well and was cumbersome to remove when changing uppers, clearing a jam or breaking down the rifle. They also missed catching about 20% of the brass. This model brass catcher attaches with a mount that is quickly and easily attached to the rail. The mount is attached at a location on the rail so that the mouth of the catcher is perfectly and securely placed right at the ejection port. The catcher then very easily slides on and off the rail mount and never strays from the ejection port. Only occasionally misses a case. And that is usually because the catcher is not pushed all the way onto the mount. The only possible downside is that you may have to move an optics mount to place the catcher mount at the perfect position. I now have two velcro catchers that have been permanently retired. Caldwell says they will be offering the mounts by themselves to allow quickly moving one catcher from one rifle to another. They are supposed to be available through Amazon and other sites by some time in January,2014. This catcher is WELL worth the extra $.
Pros: Easy to mount; Easy and fast removal and replacement; very sturdy; catches all the brass.
Cons: None...
