DIY Brass catcher for AR.
Just spied something on the Laundry room floor.
Saw something else hanging on the bedroom closet door handle.
15 minute project. Two snips of the metal and a few bends later.
It fits but does it work? Update after lunchtime here.
I try not to shoot on Sunday until Noon as a courtesy to the neighbors.
I am looking for a large Crown Royal bag next.
Maybe not range appropriate mixing alcohol and guns.
The felt or cotton canvas would resist the heat better.
Yeah I was going to say, that fabric isn't going to take the heat of the casings.
@hypo no melting fabric?
A brass catcher sure is nice isn't it.
The brass isn't that hot coming out of the 20" barrel and it was a lighter 25 grain loads. Outside temp was in the mid 30's. The CFE223 is pretty clean. I will post pics of the brass later.
Can't tell about accuracy until I get better with the sling or use a bag or bipod. Needs rail covers.
I melt the caldwell catcher with my AR using CFE223...but I am running a 7.5" barrel and pistol length gas system. LOL.
When I went to dump it only two cases were stuck at the case mouths,
They pulled free easily. That stain is more oil than soot.
I have some aluminum tape about 2 inches wide for repairs. I will sandwich the holes when they start to form.
Probably need to put some over the soot area right away or the entire top 2 inches for sure.
