Dented brass

I've been using LimbSaver's bow grip insulator self adhering pad on my brass deflector and it has really helped in eliminating case damage. I can get about 3 "Brass or Case Savers" made out of 1 grip insulator. I've asked LimbSaver R&D to develop one specifically sized for the AR brass deflector. Anybody else out there come up with a way to minimize denting their prized brass? Two other benefits of using the modified "LimbSaver" product is no brass smearing on the brass deflector and the cases aren't ejected as far from the shooter for easier brass collection.

Dave, you might try modifying the ejector spring to regulate where the gun ejects, as well as minimizing ejection damage to the cases. Very simple modification, and quite common among competitive shooters.

Re: Dented brass

These days I use a brass catcher to save my brass. But before that, I just let them fly. The brass catcher method works pretty dang good, and so far haven't seen any dents or dings on any of my brass.

Re: Dented brass

I've been using one of these for about a year on my AR-10. It works great and the two bars that you slide the catcher on are rounded off to prevent snagging and don't stick out any further than my scope turrets. I made a modification to mine in that I glued the sleeve to the top of the catcher with liquid nails.
