Burgs - Brass Retriever?

Burgs -

In a recent post, you mentioned a "brass picker-upper thingy" used at a range you frequent. If you can find any information about this piece of equipment (manufacturer name, or where to buy), I would appreciate it. I figured others might want to know also, that's why I asked via post instead of PM.

Thanks,

George

Burgs - Brass Retriever?

I'm not Burgs, but I have a superb brass picker-upper thingy -- which I may have described to Burgs some months back. It is the Brass Wizard. Basically a broom handle with a basket of flexible metal wires on the end of it, it snaps up spent brass like a hungry chicken. Google "Brass Wizard cartridge case pickup tool". I got mine from a company in Chandler, AZ, but the maker also sells them directly.



Moderator, I believe this belongs in the ammunition section. I had a dickens of a time finding where you had put Plaidad's query, and I'll bet he will too.



Cordially, Jack

we tried one on our club ranges...



grass doesn't work very well at all, but they are okay on packed sand or soil.

Thanks guys. Not working well on grass is a problem. We don't have paved ranges out here in the Ozarks. We're still trying to get most of the roads paved!

Hello. I've seen and used both types mentioned. For me, the brass wizard works best and it works on grass as well.

Neither are "perfect' but I found the brass wizard the better of the two and costs less than the other.



Best.
