The BC-BICH BRASS CATCHER is designed to work on the M16 A1 receiver with the Built-In Carry Handle.
Your brass catcher comes with 3-rubberized spring steel clips which snap over the lower portion of the Carry Handle. The clips hold the resin chute along with the quick connect bag.
Emptying the bag can be accomplished in 2 ways. Either remove the entire unit or detach the bag from the casting. To remove the bag, simply compress the release toggle and slide it along the cord; increasing the bag opening.
The custom hand sewn bag attaches securely to the lower flared edges of the semi flexible/abrasive resistant chute using friction from the sewn in para-cord and cord lock. There are no zippers to fuss with or break.
The generous size bag is capable of holding well over 100 spent 300 Blackout rounds (1 lb. 3oz.+) but we don't suggest pushing it to that point. In the event an overloaded bag does slip off, most of the brass will be contained or found in close proximity not somewhere on the ground 15 feet away. Even with the ability to securely hold over 1 pound of spent casings, the entire unit weighs in at just over 2-1/2 ounces.
The heavy canvas weight bag has an opening size of 2-1/2" x 4-1/2" and hangs to a 4-1/2" wide rounded point 5" down from the lower edge of the casting. With the BC-FTR installed, interference with the trigger finger placement is not a problem. Although part of the magazine release button is just under the lower rear edge of the casting and the rest is obscured by the bag, finding and depressing the button with the trigger finger is not an issue. The ejection port cover opens as normal, while closing it requires removing the bag or the complete unit.
We hand bend the clips on jigs, heat treat and rubberize them in our on-site shop along with hand making our custom bags from start to finish.
