    "...Does that seem normal?..." Yep. AR's especially are well known for throwing the brass 'A way over there'. Goes back to its battle rifle ancestry. The story was that it prevented the bad guys from finding you by the sun shining off the pile of brass next to you.
    A C1A1 is far more dignified. It throws the brass into an almost neat pile in front and to the right of the shooter for the OR's to pick up.
    A whole industry has grown up around brass catchers.

    These stories that you come up with are quite amusing.
    I just wish you'd use a different font or something when you're spewing them though.
    That'd be just about every post though, wouldn't it?

    When I carried one at work, I learned that you could adjust the gas plug to determine just how far the rifle would throw the brass. Even if the sergeant insisted that it must be set on 4, you could wait until he was somewhere else and adjust to a higher number. It could still remove the fired brass, reload, and keep on working. The C1A1, on 10, would kick out the brass about a foot to the right with almost no recoil. As soon as the sergeant was nearby, it was very easy to reach up and turn it back to 4.
    Waiting for first light. Shook hands with the devil.

    So all this time we and our allies should have used "discoloured/tarnished" brass and countless lives would have been saved.. Go figure??

    By the way I have a tall building in Paris for sale as well as a bridge in Brooklyn. Cheap for cash/guns/ammo.

    And the funny thing. Grass sure hid that brass, that they made you comb looking for.

    You are telling me the brass didn't act as a beacon allowing you to be spotted at great distances thus endangering you and others? Go figure??

    I still have the tall building and bridge for sale!
