Ruger sr9c lci delete kit

Hello all, I am new to the forum and I know this is a long shot.... I am looking to purchase a lci (load chamber indicator) delete kit for my ruger sr9c. I've looked it up online and I see that Galloway precision USED to sell them but they are no longer on their website. All of the information I can find on the topic seems to be from really old forums. Does anyone know where I can purchase one???? Thanks in advance

I think a lot of guys figured out that you can simply tap out the pin, remove the LCI, & file or dremel the tab down. It's free & can be done in about 10-15 minutes. That's all the kit is...a LCI with the tab cut off. Good luck.

I know I am in the minority here but I like the LCI. It's not that noticeable anyway IMO. But yeah I've read several times this is something you can do easily at home. Try youtube.

I agree with Johnwes... I also like the LCI. In fact, the fact that the SR9 has both the LCI and a manual safety was one of the main reasons I chose it.

I know a lot of guys say "you don't need an external safety" and "The LCI gets in the way", but I TOTALLY disagree. The indicator lets me see (or feel) at a moment's notice if there is one in the pipe. In addition to that, the safety lets me feel confident that accidentally brushing the trigger when drawing from the holster or carrying concealed will not cause any unwanted perforations to my body.

The only drawback that I have seen so far is that the LCI may cause the firearm to fit tightly in some holsters. Was there a reason why you felt that the weapon would perform better without one?

If you don't know your weapon is loaded, you should not own a weapon. Simple as that

There is a reason why they were used on the gun. An added safety measure for those who would appreciate it. Don't buy the model if you dont like all the "extras". No lecture needed.

I always know when my SR9c is loaded, but that doesn't mean anything when it comes to the LCI. It was part of the gun when I bought it and I have not messed with it as it does not look bad and doesn't affect the functioning of the weapon...so no need to be borderline rude about it.

To the OP. as others have said, just file off the tab on the underside of the end...and that red paint chips right out if that offends. One of my friends filed theirs down and it works fine.

I know its loaded. Does my wife? My adult son? The emergency personnel if I have a heart attack? Not saying I am a proponent of LCI's, but they are not all bad. Frankly I find the witness hole in my SR1911 to be a joke. MAYBE if its sunny outside I can tell there is a round in the chamber.
The real benefit to the LCI on the SR series is not seeing it, but feeling it in the dark, say the middle of the night.

To the OP, if you do not care for the LCI, why not buy the 9E. Same gun with fewer features

Thanks to those who defend my Statement about the LCI. The only point that I was trying to make is that I have no problem with any safety feature, as long as it does not interfere with my ability to operate firearm in a life and death situation.

Of course, every gun owner needs to know at all times whether or not their firearm is loaded. I also believe that responsible shooters treat EVERY firearm they touch as if it is ALWAYS loaded. However, being able to determine if a firearm has a round in the chamber with a quick visual inspection should be considered relatively useful information, in my opinion.

I am by no means suggesting that the LCI is a substitute for proper, safe firearms handling techniques. I only meant to convey my thought that it provides VERY useful information in an extremely quick and efficient manner.

If the SR is used for self defense, then removing the LCI may be something the lawyers bring up. Leave it alone.

LCI or no LCI can cause quite a discussion on this site. I personally don't have a problem with it; even though a gun should always be treated as loaded. Is there a particular reason you want to remove it?

I don't have a problem with the LCI & didn't remove mine, but I have helped others remove theirs or trim it shorter. It's all a matter of what you like.

To the OP of the thread... Ruger has LCIs for $3.50. You could always order one & trim/file the tab down & see if you like it. Here's a link... LC9 Loaded Chamber Indicator-ShopRuger Good luck & let us know how your project goes.

It also has a striker indicator. I just personally don't like load indicator. I find it obnoxious and tacky. It's not a big enough deal to choose a different gun. May be time to break out the ole dremmel. Thanks all
