Why do I need a Plug’r (Empty Chamber Indicator (ECI))?

Chamber flags are required equipment at most competition shooting events, from 3-position small bore to pro series 3-gun. They are also required at many ranges so that Safety Officers can see that your gun is clear.

What makes Plug’r ECI’s different from other chamber flags?

Most chamber flags slide into the barrel, which may be hot after shooting a stage or practice session. Plug’r is uniquely designed to seat into the chamber, but not the barrel so the shooter does not have to worry about melted plastic in the barrel or damage to an extractor.

How do I use a Plug’r?

For semi-auto firearms seat into the chamber with the flag hanging outward. For bolt action rifles place the eci into the chamber, next push the bolt forward and hold it in place while the other hand pulls the bungee cord around the bolt handle. Apply forward pressure with one hand while removing the bungee with the other when removing the ECI.

What is a Plug’r made of?

Each Plug’r is made of sturdy acetyl plastic that has been machined smooth and sized for each firearm. The product is machined acetyl plastic that is used in precision parts requiring high stiffness, low friction, and excellent dimensional stability. 

Why do Plug’rs have flags?

Every Plug’r features a 1-inch nylon webbing flag that can be easily seen at a distance by Safety Range Officers. Choose from a variety of flag colors, type fonts, and graphic add-ons to make your Plug’r unique.
