    Oh, that little thing that holds the slide somewhat open? The purpose of it is to show the buyer (or, more often, the person in the gun shop who checks in the guns) that the gun is unloaded while still keeping it in place enough to fit correctly in the slot in the box without rattling around during shipping. One of those pieces you can toss away, the shop only keeps it in there so no one can say they didn't get everything that came with the gun.

    It is, but a few companies do it. My Sig came home with a new one after I sent it back to the factory. They're irritating, but not nearly as bad as the companies that do the one that goes all the way down and sticks out the muzzle.

    We use them in competitions. They are called chamber flags. They show, at a glance, that a gun is unloaded and safe.
