Plans for a brass deflection screen?

Post by Mike38 on 9/11/2017, 6:37 pm

Does anyone know where I can find plans to build a light weight very portable brass deflection screen? I need to make two of them. At a match yesterday, the guy on my left ejected into my chest, almost every shot. The guy to my right had a left handed 1911 that ejected about 1 out of 5 shots right into my face. I suppose I could cobble something together, but plans of something that has been proven to work would be nice. Nothing against these shooters! I'm actually kind of laughing about it as I type this. It wasn't fun at the time, but looking back, I find it humorous.

I got mine from Wes Fleming, i think it was like 10$ and he gives the money to the junior program. It fits behind the pistol tray in the gu ho box.  

Its heavy duty chicken wire with all the edges rounded.

  • tin snips
  • duct tape

I'd like to know where the left hand eject came from... I'm left handed, and it would a great "give back" to those that don't use brass catchers...

I staple mine to the side of my gunbox.

A pretty critical piece of equipment, IMO.

I'm thinking of another brass catcher so I can collect twice as much brass.

No need to overthink it. Just get some 1/4" "hardware cloth". Trim it to the appropriate size and figure out a good way to attach it to your gun box lid.
