A heavier recoil spring should/could help if they're available.

I've used the the brass catcher linked below a couple of times now, it works but is a little uncomfortable. Still beats looking for Makarov brass 40+ feet away from my lane. The little CZ82 hit my friend in the face with brass while he was shooting the 50 yard lane and I was on 10 yard. I've shot a Bersa Hi-Cap and a couple of other 380's and they didn't fling brass as bad as the Makarov, they would drop brass around 8-12 feet away. I haven't had a chance to shoot the Ruger or Kel-Tec though.

My range has lane barriers on both sides so I have never noticed my Elsie Pea flinging brass any farther than my feet.

So I guess my response is: I have no information to help you out. Well, that was helpful.
