    Has anyone successfully removed the Loaded Chamber Indicator
    without removing the rear sight?

    I'd like to remove the LCI when doing a detailed strip. It looks like
    the clip on the LCI should come out from under the slide.

    Thanks,

    Is the slot underneath the rear sight an access point for getting the e clip off? or is there something else to it?

    If you wish, it's a simple matter to disable the LCI,
    simply by removing the clip, part no. 37. take the cap
    off, the spring and clipare right there, you've seen them.
    The diagram shows the cuts on the LCI which mate with
    the rear sight, limiting it's movement, and preventing
    removal till the sight is pushed off.

    Thanks, gang.

    I'll leave the LCI alone for now.
