The Hornady Safe Cycle is an empty chamber indicator that also operates as a load assist device for law enforcement officers or those who prefer to keep their long gun ready with a fully charged magazine and an empty chamber. To use the Safe Cycle simply insert the cartridge-shaped portion of the Safe Cycle into the (unloaded and safe) firearm’s chamber leaving the colored lever sticking out of the ejection port. Close the bolt allowing the extractor to grasp the extractor groove on the head of the Safe Cycle, then insert a loaded magazine (AR-15/10) or load the tubular magazine (select 12 gauge shotguns). The visible colored lever visually displays that the chamber is empty. To “make ready”, simply shoulder the firearm, grab the lever and pull straight back and allow the Safe Cycle to fall to the ground as the now fully charged bolt springs forward to feed a round into the chamber. Users that prefer to charge their firearm normally are free to do so as the Safe Cycle will not interfere with standard operation. On the range, on patrol, or at home, you can go from condition 3 to locked and loaded in less than a second. Just grip it and rip it with the Hornady Safe Cycle.
