I will say that is an interesting design. It looks like it piggybacks to the magazine. For me, I think it would be a bit bulky and offset "balance" more than the mesh bag style. Plus you would have to change it to a new magazine every time you reloaded.
The time for action is upon us and the enemy is at our gates. Let us not allow them one more inch of advancement but instead throw them through the gates of Hell.

Looks unreliable.
To much has to work perfectly to avoid jamming.
Even a Mauser doesn't have controlled ejection.
Which is what you would need to feed casings into a non flexible box.
Mount a rail on the side for a coffee pot, like the rest of the useless shit they hang on AR's.

Love to see a video before I'd buy.   I'm with Tom, a hard catch pan that close to the ejection port is bound to create a problems.

I have seen the mesh bag catchers at the range, and they seem to work well.  But like Tom and Alf, I wonder how a catcher that relies on keeping the brass lined up will work freely.
If I appear taller than other men it is because I am standing on the shoulders of others.

Yeah, its why I ask,  I may just have to go to arf 

Hell with current prices its about the cost of a box of ammo

Good House Keeping Seal of Approval,

Since NRA was such a waste, maybe we can get OSHA to deregulate suppressors .

The idea of quiet just seemed to connect with self cleaning .    ;D

It clips onto the mag well, not the mag, and is rated 4.7/5 stars on Amazon. Anyone try it yet? TAB?

It sure has a good rating from the company's website.   ::)

I just looked at some on Amazon 1/4 to 1/2 the price that I may just try.  I can see advantages of a fixed container like the Brass Goat and also advantages of the bag type catcher.   For $10 the CVlife bag type cather seems best for me. 

No exerience with either one though.  I would use mine in the woods or in a hurry around the house so getting hung up on something with the fixed hard container is one thing...a bag with velcro that can pull off the gun seems to be the best bet for me. 

Yep, I just ordered one to try.  Also some of the Quicksilver 2 stroke oil Les runs in his guns.

I have an E&L hard brass catcher that only fits ARs with built-in carry handles. I never liked it because I always ended up with smoke in my eyes. I drilled a bunch of 1/4" holes in the front of it, and diagonally across the lower right half for ventilation. But I still had smoking brass setting there in front of my face and quit using it. Later on I bought a Wook Company, Patent Pending, Made In USA brass catcher, AR-15 flat top. "Competing, dogging or an afternoon of shooting enjoyment. Brass is worth saving. Reloading your empties, saves money, improves accuracy. If you do not reload now, you will. Do not leave your brass behind." It's a solid nylon bag with a wire frame inside, that attaches to the forend with a 2" wide Velcro strap, and has a non-slip pad sewn onto the strap. The bag is only attached to the strap at the top of the frame, and the bottom can flex outward if it needs to. It has a zipper on the bottom at the rear so you can leave it attached to the gun and empty it, or leave it open to drop your brass in a pile on the ground as you shoot.

I don't use this one either, and can't find out anything about the company. When I search for "Wook brass catcher", I find Caldwell brass catchers and everyone else. I should use it, with the bag zipped open to dump my brass in a neat pile, instead of flying all over. I don't know where it will end up with the Tubb Precision Chrome Silicon "more efficient" ejector springs, and 80-percent greater power extractor springs. I don't reload, but I like to clean up after myself.
