I don't really go by the visual red indicator, I prefer running my support thumb over the LCI to feel whether it's flush (empty chamber) or elevated (loaded chamber). This method works with or without light.

Does yours still work this way?

Yeah, I am looking in the right place then.

Girlfriend and I sat here and I chambered and cleared a full mag and neither of us can see even a milimeter of difference. and nothing red.

Oh well, I am not bothered. I never would have trusted it anyways.

My dad's very first most important rule was " A gun is ALWAYS loaded until YOU clear it yourself "

So when you run your thumb over the LCI, it's flush to the slide regardless of whether the chamber is loaded or not?

Nope, nothing is flush or elevated.

Doc

??? The LCI has to either be flush or elevated compared to the slide, one or the other.

If you run your thumb over the LCI (do this in the dark or keep your eyes closed) and it does NOT protrude from the slide, then it's flush which means the chamber is empty. Do the same thing with a loaded chamber and the LCI should protrude from the slide like a bump.

HAH!

There it is. Need a micrometer to measure it. But, I just and I mean just feel it in the fingerprint of my finger.

Good thing I won't ever rely on it, I guess.

Doc
You may want to consider having FNH or an trained FNH gunsmith look at the LCI if nothing else than to ensure the extractor functionality of it is working properly. It's very odd that it protrudes only just barely when loaded.
