    While shooting today I was doing semi rapid fire drills. 2 shots on the right target, 2 shots on the lower target and then step over and 3 shots on the left target.

    When i moved over to the left target to take my three shots i noticed that the chamber indicator was sticking up so high that i could not see my front site. By the time i noticed it was that high, i had already pulled the trigger. Then my gun jammed.

    The casing didn't fully eject. After clearing the jam I noticed that the chamber indicator was missing. We could not find it.

    Has this happened to any one else on here?

    Only read once of this happening. I think it will function without it.

    Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.

    The pin is in place. The indicator must have split at the hole and came out.

    Did they say what might have caused it?
