So was getting ready to go and remembered I had a Caldwell brass catcher so I desided to put it on and with a little bending of the cage I think I got it,anyone else try this so your not chasing brass all over the range.

How does it attach? I've not used one of those before.

There is a flat piece that attaches to the rail that has two small ball bearings under tension then the catcher itself slides over,there is flat C channel on the catcher that has little notches in it where the little ball bearings on the rail attachment can grab to hold it in place.Here is a pic...or two.

It holds on pretty good,used it on my 17S at the range and had no issues. It does sit a bit high on the X95 so I had to bend the bottom of the catchers frame so it was even with the bottom of the ejection port,I'm going to mess around with it and see if I can cut and put a piece of aluminum under the attachment point on the catcher frame,just need a couple longer screws,if I can get it to sit about 3/16-1/4" lower it would be like it was made for the Tavor.
It does not interfere with anything at all.

I have them on almost all my ARs, RPR, etc.
Nice little kit. What is even better is you don't need to buy all new catchers because they sell the rail attachment separately. So just install one on each rifle. Smiley

What did you use to bend the bottom of the catcher to work with the X95?

Tactical Brass recovery makes a super brass catcher design that folds and is in in different cames and has a QD rail lock, check them out, The guy  is a great designer,
I  am just a customer of his that likes his work.

No offense, but for $210 I can bend over and pick up the brass myself.

Hmm, all about the money?, NO Offense but for 2000.00 spent on a Tavor you could have 5 Mini 14's, you mean like that?
or you could put a tasco on your SCAR maybe , why not you can see through both? or a Kia not a Corvette!!
Some people may want or appreciate the quality and engineering option and don't mind the extra  bucks,, No need to Poo-poo it.

I just used force,bent it like I was breaking out of jail,lower catcher bar now sits below the ejection port,adjusted the upper bars a bit too.

Try the Glory Fire,from Amazon, only$12.90 and mine works great. I ran
60 rounds today and it caught every one. I tried the Caldwell and it was a
mess.
