What does the loaded chamber indicator on Taurus pistols do?

Safety first is the motto of every law-abiding gun owner. With that in mind, Taurus provides a loaded chamber indicator on all compact, medium and large frame pistols. As with all Taurus safety and security innovations, the indicator in no way interferes with the operation of your pistol and is provided at no extra cost, but allows you to verify with your finger or "at-a-glance," that there is a round in the chamber. When a round is in the chamber, the extractor pops out of the slide, just behind the ejection port. While any loaded chamber indicator is no substitute for common sense and safe firearm handling, it is one more example of Taurus' commitment to outstanding firearms. Do not rely on the loaded chamber indicator or any other safety device. Always clear any pistol by removing the magazine, pulling the slide back and visually confirming the chamber is empty. Always remember to "open and show clear."
