rbrisb24: Treat every firearm as if they were loaded....
Eric Ring: I can CLEARLY tell when a Glock is chambered or not. If the indicator protrudes, it is has a round chambered. Plain to see on my Glock 23 and 30. AND...only I load and unload it. That helps as well...;-)
Rich1028: the wife and I have the 23's and then we got the 27's and it wan't till after we got the 27's that I noticed the loaded round Indicator in the instruction book. ares are always loaded one in the chamber. great video!
davva360: I agree. It is a slight difference but not enough to call it a loaded chamber indicator, not that you should ever rely on one anyway.
Alpha Charlie: 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 broken? LOL
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....
Matty Cakes: XD 45 still got a round in the chamber lol
GuitarLoveTV: Oh and yes i agree i wldnt rely on a lil bitty nub poking up either. Mine barely sticks out too.
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.
GuitarLoveTV: I honestly dont use my loaded chamber indicator. I mean its a very nice feature or for in the dark if yours protudes like mine. Considering you should treat all guns as loaded, with mine being loaded almost at all times i dont rely on any indicator other than my finger in the barrel and knowing theres no mag. Again tho its a nice feature to be able to feel it in the dark so you dont have to work the action on your gun.
TheFireArmGuy: I just checked out the Sig MK25 and its pretty sweet. The Navy Seals use it so who am I to knock it. I love Sigs anyways. Originally I thought the LCI was like Springfields & Rugers where a bar sticks up between the sights. I dont find that to be a big deal one way or another
Phil Jones: I just saw an LCI on the Sig Mk 25 P226. It is located on top of the slide near the from sights. Tell me do you find these LCI's necessary? Unlike the Glock the Sig's LCI sticks up in plan view and marked in red. One more thing part of this feature on the Sikh MK 25 for California compliance is that a round in the chamber can not be fired with the magazine inside.
lannim01: You can also see the brass on a glock fairly easily.
lannim01: I think it's plenty efficient enough. Visibly more than..tactily? Yeah
TheFireArmGuy: I think that exactly why Glock added one to sell legally in some states. Great stuff bud
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.
TheFireArmGuy: Well you make a good point about the NAA and nighttime however I live in Michigan with cold winters and the Glock LCI would be hard to use with gloves on. The real LCI is in the mind of the user
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 the night.
