I'm looking for a brass catcher for my AR 15.
The Caldwell units have mixed reviews, so I'm asking for recommendations.
Thanks.

Brass Goat is an option. I have one but have not used it yet.

I like my SME, never had an issue with it.

I have the Caldwell unit and put the adapters on three rifles. Works like a champ.

Same unit, different name, more than likely same factory. 😀

I've got a cadwell that has the velcro that velcros around the handguard and it's okay. but there's another type and I can't remember the name that actually has a piece that mounts in the picatinny rail but the rest of the system snaps in and out of that looks to be a lot better system than the one I have. maybe I'm thinking of the same one Swifty provided the link to but I really think it's something just a hair different but same idea.

Brass Goat works really well and doesn't require fastening to the pic rail.

Brass Goat

That's what I use, though the .458 SOCOM tends to kick it off about the 4th round, so snapping it back in place keeps it there. The only catcher that reliably works with my .458 is the Caldwell unit but the scope mount doesn't allow its use anymore. Two piece would but I got away from them, so the goat it is.

Brass Goat works well for me. Easy switch from rifle to rifle.

I need to go that route, I have the velco version, it may catch 75% of the brass.

Ordered 2 of em and there isn't room under my scope for the adapter.

Works on my AR-15 22.

Brass Goat is on standby now.

The bad reviews of the Caldwell units mentioned melting, anyone here experienced melting problems?
I don't think I'd be happy with the Brass Goat, as it appears to be a solid plastic, noisy, and I'm a klutz when getting to a stand. laugh

10gauge - won't the adapter move past your scope/mount?

It will but there isn't enough fore and after adjustment in the slides on the bag.

If I didn't have the offset AR mount it would work fine.

Same issue if you put the mount block on the rear side of scope mount.

Quick question please. How does this Brass Goat mount? I'm guessing from the looks of it that it clips to the magazine? My little pea brain can't see any other way it would work.

Thanks

It’s an individual thing. I have no problem with a cantilever even have room to spare.

Is that the Caldwell?

The bag looks a good bit larger than my Caldwell if it is.
