    brass deflector for ak-47??

    So I was at the range on Sunday shooting my ak-47 and my brass was flying 10 feet to the right of me and hitting the guy on the next bench. Well lets just say he got a little irritated. I was wondering if anyone makes a dust cover that deflects the brass down instead of 10 feet in the air.

    Tell him to suck it up. I know plenty of Marines with scars on their necks from hot brass. He should be happy it was hot brass and not hot lead.


    Rant over

    No valuable information to contribute to this thread though. You might be able to make something yourself but I dont know of anything.

    If one exists, I don't know about it. Thinking though, it would be a difficult thing to accomplish due to the way the bolt is made with the integrated handle sticking out.

    I would try grabbing the lane on the farthest right whenever possible. Where no one is in your "brass zone".

    Google search E&L brasscatcher.
    I don't know how well these work, not on an AK. I have one for a Mini 14 and it's a pain, but it does work.
    Tell the whiner to move on if he really feels like he's being inconvienenced.
    Hopefully someday you'll find a place out somewhere and you won't have to put up with other people.

    Just gonna throw this out there. You can always make one that does not attach to the gun by taking a piece of plywood, or even paneling, and making a simple stand for it, then setting it up to the right of you on the bench. Heck, you could even use a trash can. Just anything that the brass will hit and bounce back your way. Heres an example:
