Hornady Rapid Rack

The new Rapid Rack from Hornady ($12.48) doubles as an empty chamber indicator and load-assist device for those who prefer to keep their AR rifles ready for action with a fully loaded magazine and an empty chamber. To use it, simply insert the cartridge-shaped portion of the Rapid Rack into the empty chamber, leaving the colored lever protruding out of the ejection port. Slowly close the bolt, allowing the extractor to grasp the extractor groove on the head of the Rapid Rack, then insert a loaded magazine. The colored lever visually displays that the chamber is empty. To charge the rifle, simply shoulder it, grab the lever and pull straight back, allowing the Rapid Rack to fall to the ground as the bolt carrier springs forward to feed a round into the chamber. Models are available for 5.56 NATO/.223 Rem. chambered AR-15s, 7.62 NATO/.308 Win. chambered AR-10s and select 3-inch 12–gauge semi-auto shotguns (Benelli M1 Super 90, Benelli M2, Benelli M4, Benelli Super Black Eagle II, Beretta 1201FP, Remington 11-87, Mossberg 930 and Weatherby SA-80).
