    Default CT45 extractor - not LCI?

    Picked up a new CT45. Liking the gun. But I notice that with a round chambered, the extractor does not stand proud of the slide and indicate in any way that a round is chambered. All of my 9mm Kahrs do show evidence of a loaded chamber via the extractor. I thought that was an intentional feature on all Kahrs. . CT45 owners - is this normal, or is mine defective?

    I have multiple Kahrs in 3 different calibers (C, P, K and T lines) and none of them stand proud as a loaded indicator. Is it possibly an option for certain states/jurisdictions?

    My CW40's extractor stands proud with a round chambered, flush without.

    I did talk to another CT45 owner who said his extractor is just like mine. Paying closer attention, the extractor is flush when a round is chambered but recessed slightly when the chamber is empty. It's different from whet I'm accustomed to, but also works.
