Default No profile Loaded indicator on Shield

If a s&w MP Shield has its loaded indicator replaced with a ďno profileĒ indicator on a concealed carry gun does that make it non California Compliant? Void the warranty? I canít find the straight answer on this. I know the benefits to this because that thing is kind of annoying distracting in front of the sights. But I am curious if anyone knows for sure if this would be creating any potential issues. I am new to cal guns thank you for your thoughts.

Can't answer your question, not a lawyer. And I thought it looked like a giant distracting idiotic flag-thing before I got a shield. After 2 years of carrying and shooting regularly, I honestly don't notice it at all.

It does what it needs to do and I don't find it intrusive.

You wont notice it until it breaks and jams your gun up.

Is there any legitimate documentation of that actually happening? An extractor could do the same thing, but no one removes the extractor.

I've EDC my Shield withe a LCI for over two years. It has never been a problem.

I was thinking about replacing mine too but decided to just shave it down a bit and paint the letters black. Also, I added Ameriglo hackathorns to it and the LCI it pretty much non obstructing.

If you put Truglo TFX Pro sights on it the LCI will block the lower half of the front sight. I installed the Apex Low Profile LCI because of this since I really like the Truglo TFX Pro sights.

I was teaching some lady to shoot her ruger lc9 and she did experience a malfunction where the lci was to blame. A tap and rack cleared it

Never had that experience on my shield, round count in the low 1000s

Rd ct 7,000 with my 2 and no problems.

I shortened my first Shields LCI some due to all the hysteria I read about them but haven't seen a need to for the second as I no longer notice it shooting and actually like it.

Any gunsmith can do this. It is very simple. Push pin partially out with pin punch until you can remove original LCI (make sure not to lose spring). Insert new LCI and press pin back in place.
