Allows the brass catcher to be moved out of the way to deal with hard malfunctions such as double feeds or failure to extract. also allows a range officer to observe the safety condition of the weapon from a distance. This feature also comes in handy during temporary or long term storage.

I had been using another brand brass catcher on my suppressed Larue OBR- a cheaper brand that used a mesh basket and had a "quick removal" feature that mounted to the top of the rail. This worked okay, but was not idea as to access the ejection port you had to totally remove the catcher; not ideal during a match when you need to clear a jam. Plus, brass melted to the mesh bag. This product however, solves all of those issues. The design is considerably more advanced and uses higher quality materials. The way it flips forward, allows full access to the ejection port to clear jams, or show clear after shooting a stage without having a separate bag to screw with. I'm anxiously awaiting the bolt action version; my OBR is not my primary match gun, and has been pressed into that role until I have my AI AXMC up and running in the proper cartridges. Hopefully by then, the bolt action version will be available!
I have two colt 6920LEs with MOE furniture. Because of MOE's slanted fore end slots (not at a true 90 degree angle) I was a little leery if the Operator Standard TBR would work. Man, does it ever. Hats off to Lew and his fantastic product. Great looking on the rifle to boot. Well worth the money. Have two and will reorder more in the future.
I've fired only 300 rounds or so - but so far - I've lost not one single piece of brass! I've had not one single failure to eject. I am very, very impressed!
I got to work directly with Lew to customize the brass catcher for my gun. This guy takes customer satisfaction to the next level. Service after the sale, coupled with the quality of the catcher, made this transaction pure joy.
Operator Mid length AR-10 This is the best brass you will ever have the chance to use. I ran it on a precision JP LRP-07 in 6 Creedmoor for about 500 rounds through train up and a recent PRS match. There have been zero complications. A two inch rail is all you need. I would go two or three stages without emptying the bag and I could have gone many more. It's worth every penny.
His thing is not cheap, however, it is the best on the market. Nothing else approaches the quality and functionality of this well designed, well made product. I am a hand loaded and an AVID western varmint shooter. This allows me to shoot faster in the field and keep more of my brass. An added benefit is keeping once fired brass separate from three times fired, etc at the range. Sorting and guessing about the brass I bring back from the range is greatly simplified. If your buddies ARs have compatible rails you can swap it over (if you get QD version- I recommend highly) to your buddies rifle and harvest their brass. Had it for a few months now and still happy. Pay once, Cry once. I can take shortcuts in other places in my life- this is the brass catcher I always needed somebody to make. This is not paid or compensated endorsement in any way. I don't write online reviews often, this thing definitely warrants the time. I love it.
I'm just getting into reloading and I'm very glad I purchased this brass catcher. Not only is it saving me money on brass but it's also very easy to access the chamber for any reason!! I will be buying more in the future.
This is my 3rd or 4th TBR catcher and I must say the new model with the swivel and quick detach are great improvements. I hunt hogs at night with a suppressed 6.8SPC SBR and thermal weapon sight, and the TBR works great in catching spent cartridges while not getting in the way - even for a lefty like me. Great job on the upgraded features and as always, fantastic customer service from Lew. Like everything, you get what you pay for. If you are serious about your gear - get one!
I just received my brass catcher for my AR. today . I liked it so much I ordered one for my Tavor. These are absolutely the best brass catchers on the market that I have found. Thanks for taking time to make such a great product
