A loaded chamber indicator on a Ruger SR9.

A loaded chamber indicator (LCI) is a device commonly found on handguns which is designed to show the carrier that there is a round currently in the chamber.

The device is often a small bar of metal which protrudes from the side of the firearm when a chambered round pushes it outward. The bar is often colored red on top so that the color-difference makes it very easy to verify the presence of a round.

These have become very common since some areas (eg: Massachusetts) have laws which may require them.
