Dont have one on my Colt pattern. The empties leave the port at maybe not quite 45 degree up and forward to the 1:30 position, land maybe 8 foot away.

EDIT - Poor sentence making ability and spelling errors.

Good the reason i was asking is im lefthanded and dont want those hot cases on me Thanks

Mine ejects pretty much perpendicular to the upper, so that means the cases would be going straight across your face.

So the RRA or the COLT brass deflector is going to be need by a lefty?

I don't know if that would make a difference. In my gun I think the brass would miss the deflector since it pretty much ejects straight out; maybe a degree or two forward.

The RRA shell deflector (works on Oly 9mm & .40S&W) will work just fine on the Oly system.

You WANT to have it installed if you shoot it with a suppressor, like the LRM-169 suppressed upper. You will get a FACE full of gas/spray otherwise.

Well shooting my 9mm left handed the cases where wacking me on my right ear well not on my ear but hitting my hearing protection so ive ordered the rra 9mm case deflector i hope this works because i really like shooting this gun
