Thread: DIY .22 Brass catcher

  1. #1

    DIY .22 Brass catcher

    I shoot a lot of rabbits on golf courses and always try to keep my empty brass.
    Its a pain with a bolt action as I have to half open the bolt and hand retrieve each one, bit of a faff.
    Then I saw some DIY brass catchers on another site and thought I would give it whirl

    Ingredients:
    coat hanger
    mesh bag (in my case a bag that some googles came in)
    2 magnets (left over from my shooting sticks build
    black tape/black thread

    Bend frame, thread through bag where drawstring was, slip in magnets, stitch into place, attach.
    have since pulled the bag in at the base so it doesnt stick out as much


    Wire frame with extended tips to hold bag open



    "borrowed" Goggle Bag



    2x 2kg magnets



    semi finished bag



    bag on rifle



    in use (one handed bolt cycling is tricky with the rifle skitting around on the sideboard!)

    Nice! Could do with one of those for my SIG522 seeing as i've just got a 50 round drum mag

    I could do with one of these for my semi-auto 12g as I have the same problem leaving carts when shooting from the top of a vehicle.

    Might knock a couple up.

    Where did you get the magnets out of interest?

    cheap as chips, think it was a tenner posted for 15 of them
    ​They have a 2kg straight pull rating

    Why not just let then fall?

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    Horsey owners are not too keen with them left in the paddocks either. Neat idea. I will have to rig up something similar for my 10/22.
    I can speak in-depth and with great knowledge about most subjects until some bugger who actually knows what he is speaking about opens his gob .
