Product Description

  • OPERATOR Standard Length model.
  • Requires picatinny rail within 7" of tip of shell deflector.
  • compatible with DPMS type upper receiver with shell deflector/forward assist combination.
  • also compatible with HK MR762

Our 4 position detent feature allows 180 degrees of motion of the Operator Brass Catcher frame.  Allows the brass catcher to be moved out of the way to deal with hard malfunctions such as double feeds or failure to extract. also allows a range officer to observe the safety condition of the weapon from a distance.  Unlike others, our design requires NOTHING to be Unlocked (requiring extra time) for Operator brass catcher to be pivoted out of the way and chamber accessed.

  •  Highest Capacity in the industry- up to 150-5.56 cases /75-308 WIN cases.
  • Also compatible with DPMS LR308 type upper receiver with shell deflector/forward assist combination.
  • TBR design allows the brass catcher to be folded up and stored on the rifle space permitting.
  • TBR design allows spent gasses to vent upwards and away from the shooter instead of being bottled up and squeezed out toward the shooter.
  • Utilizes a true locking THROW LEVER MOUNT -no tools required for adjustment on both in-spec and out of spec picatinny rails.  TBR uses the highest quality mounts in the industry.
  • minimal profile for cqb/aviation/maritime operations.
  • unobstructed view of ejection port area with brass catcher in place allowing the shooter to make the “next decision” faster during a stoppage/malfunction.
  • No Extra Noise!  None of that annoying “box” noise…  Rigidly flexible design allows the brass catcher to absorb impact when encountering tight spaces during CQB.  Also does not create any resonance so you get none of that extra noise that solid aluminum or plastic boxes are known for.  Does not make noise when contacted by other objects like a branch or wall as you pass by. 
  • NO Brass catcher related malfunctions regardless of cyclic rate (dont try that with your brass catcher)..
  • 4 position detent feature allows 180 degrees of motion of the Operator Brass Catcher frame.  Allows the brass catcher to be moved out of the way to deal with hard malfunctions such as double feeds or failure to extract. also allows a range officer to observe the safety condition of the weapon from a distance.
  • this feature also comes in handy during temporary  or long term storage.

    I've had both hips replaced and one knee. This item is a blessing for me. No more bending over to pick up my brass. Excellent quality and functions perfectly. Highly recommend for anyone, handicapped or not.

    We hunt pigs out of a Blackhawk helicopter and I usually shoot from the left side gunners door, which was throwing brass all over the pilots, controls and instruments. This could have been dangerous had a brass been lodged in controls. I tried other types of brass catchers, but they would all jam since I have a side bolt release discharge on the AR Platform. I had to cut out a small piece of the top cover to make room for the Aimpoint mount, No big deal, used a dremmel tool. Now all pilots are happy, and its a lot safer not having brass fly around controls surfaces in the Blackhawk. I have not lost one piece of brass. I thought when I bought it it was a bit pricey, but the customer service and quality are great. The Quick Detach works perfect, the swivel works perfect and I can see it will last me a lifetime, on any AR platform I want to put it on. It is not real bulky and allow me to shoot from different positions and still catches the brass. The brass wont fall out because of the little weighted flap inside. I highly recommend it. Do yourself a favor and get one.

  4. Worth the money

    Posted by Jhop from Texas on 1st Mar 2016

    The saying "You get what you pay for" holds true for the Operator Standard length brass catcher I bought from Tacticalbrassrecovery.com. I seen a few reviews online at various sources and on YouTube. I was a little hesitance to spend this amount of money on a brass catcher. However when hog hunting with my 6.8 I was losing more than half my brass every time I went out. Which for the amount I hunt equaled 50-60 cases a month if not more. Since I reload, the cost of losing brass starts to add up. I rarely lose any brass now, if I do it's because I didn't close it properly. It even keeps the brass trapped in the bag while I run across fields on occasion. I thought with the bulking look of the brass catcher it would cause problems for my type of hunting. I hog hunt from dusk to dawn from a truck. Frequently getting in and out of the truck to stalk pigs. However this brass catcher doesn't get in the way at all. It's super easy to take on and off, swings out of the way with ease if you need to look at your chamber for any reason. I have not experienced any jams/stove pipes white the brass catcher on either. While I've fired less than 500 hundred rounds while using the brass catcher on a few AR's, I couldn't be happier with it. I highly recommend buying one if you're a reloader or want to save your brass.

  5. Works great

    Well built, looks good on rifle. Catches all my 6.8 brass and has never caused a jam. Couldn't ask for more.

  6. better than the HK

    Posted by Derrick on 24th Nov 2015

    i bought this and the comparable model from HK pro.
    this is hands down better and over $100 cheaper so i sent the hk back. this one actually folds up just about everyway i like.
    the hk caused jams with my fostech bumpfire rifle. save your money and get this.

  7. None better

    Posted by Dino on 21st Aug 2015

    I have used this product in 4 matches. I was a little hesitant at spending the money. Don't be. This thing is top notch. Everything they say is spot on. I shoot Lapua brass iny grendel. It paid for itself in on match. You don't have time to pick up brass at the Thunderbeast Team Challenge. No lost brass and the RO'S really liked being able to see in the chamber. I now own several.

  8. Made field work FUN!

    Posted by Grant on 11th Aug 2015

    Took this brass catcher on a P dog shoot. 3 days with every type of shooting. It worked FLAWLESS!! I have had experiance with many types of brass catchrs as a Ch-47 crewmember for 12 years, and most will cause a weapon malfunction from time to time. Hundreds of rounds and lots of full bags of brass and this never caused one malfunction. Everyone that was with me wants one now!! They all spent time picking up brass from the dirt and grass while I kept blasting P dogs like it was my job. Bad ass product!!
