Default .17 Cal Chamber Flags?

I can't find chamber flags that fit a .17 cal rifle.

Help a dude out?

Yes. They do have chamber flags that go up and lock into the magwell for a couple of rifles so if it was a cz the link might work.

I googled for "17 cal empty chamber indicator" and this was in the first few hits:

They claim it works for 17 rimfire.

As far as running a "chamber flag" down the magwell, that doesn't demonstrate an empty chamber.

I'm always amazed how googling on slightly different phrases will hide the results you want. :-)

You can cut short a regular chamber flag so it just goes in the chamber and not down the bore. I have a few that way and they work fine.

Weed Wacker string - tie one end with a big 'ol knot or add a piece of masking tape

You'll be hard pressed to find a Zip Tie that is small enough.

Usually, the only one that's checking is the Range Master.

I checked with the outfit that makes our CALGUNS.NET chamber flags and they said the .22 lr flag is designed to be used on a .17 also.


If anyone has the .22lr and a .17 rifle I'd like to know if it does indeed fit.

Did you get any of the chamber flags from me in a Constitution with an order?


If so the .22LR is designed to work on the .17 caliber also.


Let me know if so or if it does not work as I am working with the company manufacturing these critters.
