Operator STD Length AR15-AR10


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.
  • not 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.

    Lightweight and well built . No need to waste time & money on anything else. Well done.

  2. The BEST Brass Catcher in these states united

    Posted by Joseph F. Ebeyer IV LCPL USMC 0311 Oct 23 1983 Beirut Marine Barracks Bombing on 10th Jul 2018

    I own a bunch of these things and as a Lawyer for www.CasedismissedGUARANTEED.com can recommend you purchase one ASAP. If you don't like it We @ CDG will give you a refund and We're just customers!!! End of issue. Point "blank" period. Like Us! Like The Marines THE BEST!

  3. WELL worth the price!

    Posted by Nate RW on 3rd Jul 2018

    I had been using another brand brass catcher on my suppressed Larue OBR- a cheaper brand that used a mesh basket and had a "quick removal" feature that mounted to the top of the rail. This worked okay, but was not idea as to access the ejection port you had to totally remove the catcher; not ideal during a match when you need to clear a jam. Plus, brass melted to the mesh bag.

    This product however, solves all of those issues. The design is considerably more advanced and uses higher quality materials. The way it flips forward, allows full access to the ejection port to clear jams, or show clear after shooting a stage without having a separate bag to screw with.

    I'm anxiously awaiting the bolt action version; my OBR is not my primary match gun, and has been pressed into that role until I have my AI AXMC up and running in the proper cartridges. Hopefully by then, the bolt action version will be available!

  4. Best shell catcher on the market !!!

    Posted by Lance Workman on 28th Jun 2018

    I have two colt 6920LEs with MOE furniture. Because of MOE's slanted fore end slots (not at a true 90 degree angle) I was a little leery if the Operator Standard TBR
    would work. Man, does it ever. Hats off to Lew and his
    fantastic product. Great looking on the rifle to boot. Well
    worth the money. Have two and will reorder more in the

  5. A brass catcher - that works!

    Posted by Jim Butler on 8th Jan 2018

    I've fired only 300 rounds or so - but so far - I've lost not one single piece of brass! I've had not one single failure to eject. I am very, very impressed!

  6. H&K MR761 Customized

    Posted by Larry Floyd on 6th Jan 2018

    I got to work directly with Lew to customize the brass catcher for my gun. This guy takes customer satisfaction to the next level. Service after the sale, coupled with the quality of the catcher, made this transaction pure joy.

  7. Stop worrying about your brass!

    Posted by Alex Stricker on 12th Oct 2017

    Operator Mid length AR-10
    This is the best brass you will ever have the chance to use. I ran it on a precision JP LRP-07 in 6 Creedmoor for about 500 rounds through train up and a recent PRS match. There have been zero complications. A two inch rail is all you need. I would go two or three stages without emptying the bag and I could have gone many more. It's worth every penny.

  8. Best Brass Catcher

    Posted by L Pitman on 22nd Aug 2017

    His thing is not cheap, however, it is the best on the market. Nothing else approaches the quality and functionality of this well designed, well made product. I am a hand loaded and an AVID western varmint shooter. This allows me to shoot faster in the field and keep more of my brass. An added benefit is keeping once fired brass separate from three times fired, etc at the range. Sorting and guessing about the brass I bring back from the range is greatly simplified. If your buddies ARs have compatible rails you can swap it over (if you get QD version- I recommend highly) to your buddies rifle and harvest their brass. Had it for a few months now and still happy.
    Pay once, Cry once. I can take shortcuts in other places in my life- this is the brass catcher I always needed somebody to make.
    This is not paid or compensated endorsement in any way. I don't write online reviews often, this thing definitely warrants the time. I love it.

  9. Worth every bit!

    Posted by Cade P. on 6th Jan 2017

    I'm just getting into reloading and I'm very glad I purchased this brass catcher. Not only is it saving me money on brass but it's also very easy to access the chamber for any reason!! I will be buying more in the future.

  10. Worth every penny

    Posted by fanninland on 3rd Jan 2017

    This is my 3rd or 4th TBR catcher and I must say the new model with the swivel and quick detach are great improvements. I hunt hogs at night with a suppressed 6.8SPC SBR and thermal weapon sight, and the TBR works great in catching spent cartridges while not getting in the way - even for a lefty like me. Great job on the upgraded features and as always, fantastic customer service from Lew. Like everything, you get what you pay for. If you are serious about your gear - get one!
