skyboundpilot: Does anybody know if that there is a aftermarket extractor/chamber
indicator that protrudes more? I know Wolf makes one, but I don't know if
it protrudes any farther. I'm kinda knew to Glock and would like a better
indicator if possible....
Alpha Caskey: In my opinion, especially if you run a glock, refrain from worrying about
loaded chamber indicators, they just make funtion checks more lazy, and
that's no excuse in the name of safety. I agree on simply pulling the slide
back and physically ensuring you have a hot or clear gun. I dont believe
any aftermarket ones are made so if you really wanted, I guess you could
take it to a gunsmith or if you know positively what you're doing, weld on
top of the face of the ejector and put a red finish on the sides of it to
mimic the loaded chamber indicators that some ruger models have on the top
of their slides. You know, the ones that some people see and think they're
Matty Cakes: XD 45 still got a round in the chamber lol
TheFireArmGuy: @HYDE43210 Thanks buddy and Glocks are my favs too but lets get serious
about what they call a loaded chamber indicator
Ballistic Bedlam: Yeah it can get chilly here in AK as well. I tend to check the firearm
before I leave the house because I know the round won't fall out of the
chamber while I am out. Ultimately it is the shooters responsibility to
know the status of their weapon we used to get punished for pulling the
trigger on a 'dead mans gun' basically pulling the trigger when a weapon
wasn't ready to fire for any reason. I think the LCI is required by some
states that's why glock added one as an afterthought.
357minimag: Hey, similar to the North American handgun you can see the brass in the
chamber on a glock from the right side of the gun. I don't care for the
loaded chamber indicator, but that is not why I bought the Glock. I bought
a Glock 27 for my concealed carry weapon.
ThatDudeSirraj: Good video, I always enjoy them... even if I am almost a year late lol. I
guess clock can't get everything right, that loaded indicator does not seem
worth relying on to me either. Half rack/press check and keep it moving!
Happy Shootin' buddy
Daniel J: It's good enough for me Firearm guy :D lol i like your videos, will be
Ballistic Bedlam: The Gen 2 was before the indicator was installed. The Gen 3 and 4s with the
loaded chamber indicator doesn't work bad at all you just have to get used
to it. I have large hands but its quite comfortable for me to sweep that
chamber indicator with my trigger finger which I do every time I load the
pistol. The difference is tactile and easy to get used to. The NAA you show
will be quite hard to use the visual indicator when something goes bump in
TheFireArmGuy: @lhusby I agree and I dont really need a loaded chamber indicator but Glock
shouldnt pretend that theirs really is
TheFireArmGuy: @cptjack80 I agree its hardly worth it
TheFireArmGuy: @aikido10 Just a simple rule that so many ignore - good point
TheFireArmGuy: Yes I agree with a chamber check for sure
humans4targets2: @TheFireArmGuy Per the DOJ (department of justice) in CA no handgun can be
shipped into the state for sale or ownership or transfer without a loaded
chamber indicator. It is also the law in MD and MA and the law for all
three states started in 2006.
Daniel J: @TheFireArmGuy and I understand your point completely, if it doesn't feel
right then it doesn't feel right. whatever works is the best way to go.
GLOCKS! A little off subject but I can't wait till I get out of BCT so I
can get that Military discount. G20 & G29 here I come :D
TheFireArmGuy: @Five00700 You make some good points bro and I agree. Sometimes they make
the simplest things difficult
TheFireArmGuy: right on buddy
TheFireArmGuy: @theArmedJanitor Press check is the only way to go for me too
ae357em: I agree. I wish glock had an indicator like the xds.
TheFireArmGuy: @matt4023 I dont think Glock considers it to have one either. It may be a
way to keep up with others
grantl311: I'm with you! I think they just called what they already had a "loaded
chamber indicator". Like calling the dog that poops in your yard an
TheFireArmGuy: @MrDeleon9999 Hey my friend thanks for checking in
TheFireArmGuy: @MakingMasterClass Yeah to call that a chamber indicator is like calling a
Raven P25 an AR
0U8123MTA3: IF the glock "loaded chamber indicator" extractor could have a contrasting
color so that when the chamber is loaded and the extractor protrudes,
white, blaze orange, neon green or something could become visible, then I
could see the glock extractor as a reliable indicator. Like the XD 45 at
2:00 has a "dot" on the rear of the gun, something similar could be used on
the glock extractor to make the protrusion more visible.
MRnlightmnt: oh yeah , another great video !!!
Sire Bigz: Ill go with a manual check
John Ford: Of course. I understand. I just thought that taking the magazine out
without ejecting the chambered round could lead one to a false sense of
security. Clearly if you follow the other rules of gun safety, nothing's
going to happen. Just an observation that's all. Still, it was a very
cogent, informative, and useful video. keep it up!
TheFireArmGuy: @23mrcowboys I agree bro and Glocks are my favs. That XD needs to be
handled every other day or my head spins. I really dig it
TheFireArmGuy: My thoughts exactly - good comment bud - thanks
TheFireArmGuy: Now thats a comment worth considering
Fun & Family Channel: Good points. I find the XD chamber indicator to be more effective. You can
feel it and see it. That really fulfills the purpose. That's just one of
the thing that should be worked on Glock's make them perfect.
TheFireArmGuy: @JUKEBOXX1990 Yeah no kidding. Gun manufacturers have to go to extreme
measures to sell their guns in California
TheFireArmGuy: Thanks for checking it out
TheFireArmGuy: Yes I agree
TheFireArmGuy: @grantl311 Now that was funny
JJAM: I had the same gripe on my 26 G4, until it dawned on me that it is to my
benefit to not have the indicator be visible to anyone except the one
holding the gun. If I were out of bullets for some reason, the person whom
the gun was pointed at would never know there was nothing in the chamber,
even if he was familiar with glocks. Even if a loaded chamber indicator was
flashing a big red light, I still would not rely on it to determine if a
round was chambered - ALWAYS visually inspect.
MRnlightmnt: Glock has another loaded chamber indicator... its called the trigger!! If
you pull the trigger and the gun goes bang , it was loaded !!! I don't know
why Glock doesn't put that in their manuel?( sarcasm implied) Is there a
handgun with an extractor that does not move a tiny bit when going from
unloaded chamber into battery??? Maybe every gun made has a "loaded chamber
indicator", they just don't know it!
torgsgotboards: if you arent sure if its loaded in the heat of the moment then rack another
round. quit ur bitchin. You have a table full of great guns
Grubkat: I think Glock considered that as an afterthought. They would never admit to
not having an indicator. Much like they would not come right out and say
they botched the recoil spring on some of the Gen 4s. Sometimes I have one
in the pipe and sometimes I do not. Depends on threat levels and sometimes
the holster I am using that day. Either way, the " loaded indicator" is not
what I rely on.
The Shooter's Mindset: For me I don't consider the so called glock loaded chamber indicator. At
all reliable? It's just not enough to tell. Not even in the NAA's. I
consider a true loaded chamber indicator in the springfield XD's or xdm's.
You can see it & feel it. Without confusion or second guessing yourself.
deputysheriff100: Great question. I believe it IS a loaded chamber indicator to a person who
knows his gun very well. Practicing with a Glock regulary is easy to feel
the ejector or to see it pushed outward. To a "newbie" in guns they will
not notice it. But a person who knows the gun well is a benefit. Just like
the Glock trigger, in forward set tells you it's roostered, but is there a
round in the chamber. I say yes to to a knowledgeable person but no to a
person who doesn;t practice often with the Glock.
GuitarLoveTV: My taurus 92-af has a red mark on the extractor when its protruding from
being loaded but you really cant see the mark. However you can feel the
extractor poking out slightly.
TheFireArmGuy: @mdw63 IMO the slide check is the only true way to see
TheFireArmGuy: Thanks bud
f8talh8red: the glock safety indicator is meant to be felt, not looked at. but as
stated earlier, if the mags in it, its loaded. i always treat it like its
loaded. therefore the loaded chamber indicator isnt really that pertinent
GuitarLoveTV: Oh and yes i agree i wldnt rely on a lil bitty nub poking up either. Mine
barely sticks out too.
TheFireArmGuy: @Mrmodernsurvival I can too bud the I have a five yr old so there are times
that I un-chamber it around the house
krazy45cat: It dosen't mater to me . I always carry my handguns loaded . If I grabbing
a diffenrent gun to carry I make sure its fully loaded .Cyl full or a full
mag and one in the tube .
Carlos Silva: If you train like you should , you will know when you gun is loaded or not
loaded Glocks are combat handguns, draw, aim and shoot, no bells or whitles
to worry about, just one Glock guy to another stay safe
Steinbacker4001: Huh... Another gizmo to compensate for a lack of common sense. Every gun is
always loaded, period. There is ALWAYS one in the chamber even when
physically there may not be. Think like that and no blown-up walls, TVs or
heads. I love NutNFancy on here, but he wears this chest rig with the
handgun pointing right at anyone standing next to him. NO. Waving a gun
around 'cause some indicator shows an empty chamber? No.
