Have you seen a surplus of .223 or 5.56 NATO anywhere around? Neither have we. Some retailers are plum out of reloading accessories, too. Primers are in short supply. That’s impressive, to say the least.
If you’ve been looking for a sign to get into reloading, or at least to keep your brass so that you can get into reloading if and when you want to, this is it. On one level, an AR shell catcher can help with that. At least, it has the potential to do so.
Do you know those brass catcher bags? Those mesh bags that mount to your Picatinny rails and stick out and over your action like a big flag? Those things melt. They obstruct your sight picture. They get in the way and they’re annoying as you can imagine. They’re annoying in some ways you can’t imagine, too.
No one wants to enter three-gun or other competitive shooting competitions with a big bulky monstrosity like one of these things attached to their AR. Even if you only enjoy range therapy, autoloaders throw brass like a big-league pitcher. Raking them up is almost as much of a pain as those brass catcher bags are.
Magwell Mounts watched, listened, and then watched some more. They saw the shortcoming and they set out to create a better AR shell catcher. That’s precisely what they did. Magwell Mounts came up with the Brass Goat. Don’t take “greatest of all time” lightly – they don’t.
Unlike those flimsy brass bags that get in the way and often melt under the influence of hot brass, the Brass Goat is made from tough, durable ABS resin that is stable and extremely tough.
It also is designed to mount directly to Mil-Spec dimension AR-15 lower receivers. If you have any questions about compatibility, you can check them out right on their website, BrassGoat.com. Find the details there, or get in touch with their customer service team at 1-833-MAGWELL and they’ll address your concerns.
Back to the greatest of all time. The Brass Goat is light, low profile, and designed to prevent jams. You don’t need to worry about brass “stovepiping” out of your action or into this AR shell catcher.
It doesn’t obstruct your sight picture, won’t melt, and it is lightweight and streamlined. It won’t cause jams, and it’s compatible with a proprietary hopper that will hold up to 30 rounds of .223 Remington brass. In other words, there’s never been a better tool to easily and conveniently collect your spent brass.
The Magwell Mounts Brass Goat is also highly-rated by real users. If you’re skeptical about it and want to hear what real users are saying, just visit MagwellMounts.com. Reviews are listed right on their homepage and they’re pretty straightforward. The thing works, and it works well. If you do get into reloading your brass the thing will pay for itself after one day at the range.
There are a lot of brass catchers out there, and there are even more AR accessories claiming to be the best. Few are as insightfully engineered as the Brass Goat.
