I'm pretty sure it's either just like this, or slightly worse:

If you download the PDF from the site it looks like it somewhere on the top.

I think the picture is of a CA Compliant P229 Enhanced Elite. A friend of mine almost bought a P226 EE, but almost threw up when he saw the LCI & Warning Label. The picture looks like his description of the one he saw.

It's subtle, but you can certainly feel it.

The extractor is flush with the slide when there is a round in the chamber.

P229 Enhanced Elite.

I'm SIGnorant, so I don't know what Sig's were around before the roster. When did you buy yours? SSE? PPT? I'm guessing all the models that were designed after the Roster was instituted, get that treatment to make it onto the CA Roster.

thanks for your picture. the extractor defintely is a loaded indicator.

but in PDF downloaded from that webpage, there is picture showing the loaded chamber indicator is on the top of the slide.

i am wondering whether sig has some special design on mk25 for ca?

That leads me to believe that your model is the standard MK25, and that there is a "special" CA Compliant model that has an LCI like the one in the picture.

You all know that a loaded chamber indicator is different from a chamber load indicator.

A chamber load indicator is a loaded chamber indicator, but the majority of loaded chamber indicators do not meet the requirements of a chamber load indicator and a chamber load indicator is a mandatory requirement for any semi-auto centerfire pistol that is submitted for testing to be placed on the Roster of Handguns Certified for Sale after 01-01-2007.

This is a loaded chamber indicator.


This is a chamber load indicator and required by CA law for all semi-auto centerfire pistols submitted after 01-01-2007. [PC 31910(b)(5)]




Penal Code 16380
As used in this part, "chamber load indicator" means a device that plainly indicates that a cartridge is in the firing chamber. A device satisfies this definition if it is readily visible, has incorporated or adjacent explanatory text or graphics, or both, and is designed and intended to indicate to a reasonably foreseeable adult user of the pistol, without requiring the user to refer to a user's manual or any other resource other than the pistol itself, whether a cartridge is in the firing chamber.

Penal Code 31910
As used in this part, "unsafe handgun" means any pistol, revolver, or other firearm capable of being concealed upon the person, for which any of the following is true:
(b) For a pistol:
(5) Commencing January 1, 2007, for all center fire semiautomatic pistols that are not already listed on the roster pursuant to Section 32015, it does not have both a chamber load indicator and if it has a detachable magazine, a magazine disconnect mechanism.
