I should point out that there are cheaper options if you have a rifle with lots of pic rail. This just seems like a good solution for those of us with a rifle lacking picatinny rail.


They don't show up on Amazon....????

I'm liking this brass catcher - just wish it was a bit cheaper.

When I ordered, the price was similar between Amazon and Brass Goat, but the Goat quoted a quicker delivery.

I also thought it was better to send the money directly to the Goat people, and keep Amazon from getting their cut.

I just ordered one. It was easier to buy now before I lose the link. Shipping was $4.75. This is for the brass goat. I would rather order direct so Amazon did not take their profit.

Bought one direct from Goat shipping to Alaska reasonable. For a leftie shooting an AR like the added protection.

A follow-up.

I had ordered two, they sent one.. I called yesterday and left a message as to what happened.

Got a call just a little while ago, the other one has been sent out..

I realize everybody makes mistakes and I will say they handled it well and in a timely fashion. They have my recommendation as a good place to do business with.

I did discover that the brass goat is not some sort of tactical accessory. If you hold on just the right angle, you can get a nasty jam caused by the brass bouncing back into the ejection port. I had that happen once when my grandson was shooting - ran fine for the adults.

Last update on the Brass Goat: had the grandkids out shooting again and a lot of rounds went through the AR. The Brass Goat worked perfect.
I have no regrets with my purchase. I definitely recommend the Brass Goat to anyone who hates policing brass out of the dirt.

I’ve seen so many problems with the ones made with net that I admittedly just dismissed the thought of them but this one has made me think about them again.

Thanks

Can you use the brass goat thing on a bench, or is the part that collects brass too long? It looks almost as long as a 30 rd mag in the pics.

If you need it as low as possible, take off the dump. The brass will fall into a pile by your arm.

It is as long as a 20 round mag when fully assembled.
