The spent shell receptacle can be the support.No intrusion to mag insertion. Maybe I dont understand but there is No way to put support under it as the rounds come out the bottom.
It is a good idea but given that the RDB was never intended to be a "bench rifle" if you want something like that, you're likely going to have to make one yourself (or have one custom made)...might be doable by bending kydex?I would like to see a brass catcher that is made of durable plastic/polymer, snaps onto the stock, and is sturdy enough that one could put a support hand under it for support shooting probe with a bipod.

One of the knocks on the RDB design is that shooting from a bench is hard because one can't place a hand under the stock just forward of the butt (in order to regulate elevation) because that where the brass is ejected.
If a little plastic box were clipped under the ejection port, the bottom of that box could serve as the bottom of a conventional stock.
Preliminarily, I've set one up using a vitamin bottle and zip ties as a sort of clevis pin.It is a good idea but given that the RDB was never intended to be a "bench rifle" if you want something like that, you're likely going to have to make one yourself (or have one custom made)...might be doable by bending kydex?
Saw your thread , went and ordered on myself, just got it in this evening going to start work on it tonight, thx for the tip!I saw a thread down a ways in this forum where people were waiting on a brass catcher to come out. I just made my first one by modifying an $8 AR15 brass catcher purchased from Amazon here:
First cut off the hanger:
Then slide the fabric off of the wire loop and bend it so:
It will clamp onto the ridge over the ejection port like this:
Once it feels like it fits well, slide the fabric back over the wire loop. After the fabric was in place I welded the loop closed again but if you can't weld a piece of electrical shrink wrap slid over the joint will work just as well .
Then all you have to do is spread the wire (it's very stiff) enough to fit over the rails and let it spring back in place to hold itself.
The chinesium wire loop is very stiff metal and it bends easier if you heat it red hot with a propane torch. It will bend without one but it takes a lot of force.
I'm glad people are finding it useful. I love cheap solutions and find it curious that no one has started producing them for sale for those that can't figure it out.Holescreek you are a genius!!
In 15 minutes I had a fully functional RDB brass catcher, only $8. If KT sold them I would have easily paid $50+ for it!
Thank you very much for sharing your knowledge
