    I can't quite figure out the attachment method for the bag? But something like this could possibly be made to work?
    https://touch.trademe.co.nz/listing/view/1016891612

    But not 100% sure as I don't have all the information. What I have learnt in life is its easier and cheaper to try use something that already exists most of the time, rather than build from scratch.

    Can't you buy the rail attachment separately ?

    I use the Caldwell one, I have two bags & 10 rail attachments.

    Try reloaders. I brought one bag(and mount) plus a extra mount - so 2 firearms, one bag. They might still have them, as it was maybe 18 mths ago? $15??? may have that wrong, but it was bugger all. The extras werent on the website, needed to call.
    Please excuse spelling, as finger speed is sometimes behind brain spped........ Or maybe the other wayy.....

    Just found the invoice - @seano

    Catcher bag -
    Caldwell AR15 Brass Catcher Picatinny Rail - Magazines - Gun Parts - Reloaders Supplies Ltd

    Spare mounts -
    Caldwell AR15 Brass Catcher Picatinny Rail Spare Mount - Magazines - Gun Parts - Reloaders Supplies Ltd

    Was a bit wrong on my memory of cost for the mounts, they were both $10 cheaper when I got them, but that was May 2014,

    Yup, Reloaders have extra mounts for the Caldwell brass catcher. Unlike Gun City and Serious Shooters, if it's on the web site at Reloaders you can actually buy it.

    These things?


    My one just clips on and off with a little detent.
    I have used it in a few 3gun stages now and don't even notice it is on.
    Clear rifle, unclip and show clear.
    Better than losing brass in the long grass I reckon.😆
