M14 Shell Deflector

I recently acquired an M14 shell deflector. It is mentioned in the military M14 manuals. Has anyone had experience with it's use ? Does it contain the fired shell within the receiver, proper, or does the shell still eject and fly to God knows where ? Thank you.

Well, if it's the deflector I'm thinking about with two wire springie thingies on it and snaps into the clip guide it's supposed to be used with the blank firing adapter. It's not really a brass deflector as much as a flash shield. Seems unburned powder could build up in the breach area when firing blanks until it finally singed eyebrows, etc. These were usually issued w/bfa to protect the shooter in such an event. That's as I understand it and the only deflector I've heard of. Others may know more.
