    I am going to test out a brass catcher I made for my FiveseveN that just happens to line up correctly on my M357a-1. I located a picattiny mount, drilled a couple of holes and bent sone bronze welding rod to shape. The catcher bag is a one-gallon paint filter from Home Depot. I will post pics and results soon.

    ***Does anyone else(commercially) make something like this???

    I've looked into it at the urgings of a few others to make my M9A1 "supremely tacticool", but it seems the only option is the hand mounted generic e-bay type. I even tried talking BT into making one, but he didn't seem too interested. :lol:

    If you are able to fabricate something that works, be sure to post pics and what was involved in the process. Depending on the finished product, I might be interested in buying one from you if your up to it. :)

    Midway sells one for $25 but the reviews are very mixed 50-50.

    I would be interested in seeing pics of yours!

    some pics

    The paint filter was attached with hot glue. I have a black mesh now and will replace it. The mount is too long and needs to be trimmed for the Steyr but is correct for the FiveseveN. The wireframe is tilted a few degrees towards the rear sight. Oh! and it works too.

    I will postmore pics after the mount is trimmed and the black bag is in place.

    Howdi Hypertex,

    Using the front rail to attach the brass catcher...very clever!

    Get a Patent! :D :D

    Cheers!

    Hi, Hypertex,

    Your brass catcher is very cool 8) :) !!

    Where can we buy an inexpensive picatinny rail adapter?

    Well, on a whim I used one of those small minnow nets, I held it next to the grip with my hand and had it lined up with the ejector port, it worked!, looks weird, but oh well.

    Been working a lot of OT lately...

    The mount I am using is made by CAA and isavailablealmosteverywhere. I would like to find a cheaper unit but this isn't too expensive.
