anyone got a good source for chamber flags in bulk?  I’d like to start having them on hand for matches for those who need them or lose them

I’d be interested in this too.

 

As a cheap solution until you can find a good bulk source... heavy duty zip ties can be used

Ask Ralph Arredondo about using random pieces of plastic in hot barrels for chamber flags...not a good idea.

If you buy them 100 at a time they are  50 cents each.  Available in centerfire and rimfire sizes and with your custom printed logo for slightly more.

The CMP also has a package of 12 for a little over $5.

I had a chamber flag melt in my chamber between stages a few months back.  After that, nothing goes into my chamber except bullets.

it was a BCM 5.56 chamber.

 

It was during a black rifle match here in AZ.  Stage 3 had a 100 second par time to shoot 2 8" targets at about 275 yards and 2 plates at about 75 yards as many times as you could hit within  the time.  I blew through about 50 rounds then flagged the rifle with a plastic chamber flag.  

 

got to stage 4 and started make ready and the flag came right out of the rifle but the extended plastic part stayed in the chamber.  It had to be hammered out with a rod then scraped out with a chamber brush.

 

The chamber flag was one of the clear plastic ones.  

 

Lesson learned.

I typically cut those long ones down to a little over an inch to where there is just enoung in the chamber to prove it empty.

We keep 14" yellow zip ties in all the stage boxes... at 7-cents each, they are cheap enough to give away: LINK

yes - thank you  ... I had to use one of your zip ties when I forgot to bring a flag a few months ago.
