    Default Anyone use a MP5 brass catcher ??

    I saw one on HK parts, their pn is HKP-00845.
    However it is formed to fit receivers without additional sight mounts.
    If anyone has one , do you know if it made of kydex ??, if so can it be heated and re-formed ?.

    I don't know if this will help, but here goes anyway. Unfortunately I don't own a MP5, although I do have my first roller delayed bolt firearm, a PTR 9KT on order which should arrive hopefully by this weekend. What I have been using isn't really designed for an MP5 but was originally sold for use on ARs, but it's easily adapted to just about rifle or pistol with a Picatinny rail. It's the Caldwell Brass Catcher. It has a mounting clamp that attaches to the Picatinny rail and then a removable metal frame and mesh bag slides on to the mounting clamp to catch the spent brass. The mesh bag can be adjusted to fit the location of the ejection port on a wide range of firearms. I've used on my AR, Sig MPX. Kriss Vector, and CZ Scorpion Micro and it work great.

    I know this product isn't the same as the metal brass catcher you are asking about, but if you have a Picatinny rail, this works great and it doesn't require any modifications to the firearm at all.

    What he said. This works surprisingly well on 9mm with a rail.

    IF you were a baller you’d use this one.

    Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a good blaster at your side, kid.

    I use this one. The flat top mount version of course. Only really use it for 10mm though... every once in awhile a spent casing bounces back into the ejection port and causes a malfunction in full auto.
    Spent most of my tax return on Hk parts, booze and ammo....the rest I just wasted

    The Caldwell mount obscured the front sight post on my Ptr clone. So if I leave it in place Iíll be using the Romeo red dot sight.

    Iíll post again after I run 60 rounds to check capacity and whether I get any bouncing back into the breech.

    Iíll also try this on a flat top 300 Blackout AR

    Cheers
