Chamber-View Company, innovators behind the highly visual firearms safety products for shotguns, ARs and pistols, is pleased to announce their introduction to the market, the Chamber-View for shotguns, is now available for purchase through BerettaUSA.com and coming soon from Brownells.com. Made of 100% silicone, the Chamber-View provides instant recognition that a firearm is safe by indicating an open action to surrounding shooters, personnel and observers. Not only does it enhance the safety of the shooter by aiding against accidental closings of the action, the Chamber-View product line also helps preserve firearm performance by preventing elements from contaminating the ejector port, magazine and barrel.
The Chamber-View product for shotguns is the brainchild of inventor Ned T. Bitsack, CEO of Chamber-View Company. Bitsack discovered the sport of wing and clay shooting while recovering from another sport related injury. One day, while at a clay course, Bitsack noticed that he and the trapper were frequently checking the ejection port of his business partner's autoloader shotgun to make sure the action was open. Bitsack knew there had to be a faster way to identify this age old problem and thus, an idea was born: the Chamber-View for shotguns.
A dentist by trade, Bitsack went into his dental lab and made an impression of the injection port of his shotgun. The initial prototype was made from foam and plastic. He brought this to Feature Products Ltd., a fabricator located in Goffstown, NH, who agreed to undertake the project. Chamber-View was off and running.
The patent pending Chamber-View product for shotguns is designed to fit most currently available side ejection autoloader and pump style shotguns. These include models from the top seven manufacturers: Beretta USA, Benelli, Browning, Franchi, Mossberg, Remington and Winchester.
The tapered design allows the Chamber-View to fit in most .410, 20 and 12 gauge shotguns. It has also been tested and will fit into some discontinued models not readily available. Expansion of the product line will include models for breach loading O/U and S/S, MHR/MSR platforms and automatic pistols.
The Chamber-View has a long service life and is minimally affected by weather extremes. It is also flexible and resilient across a wide range of temperatures. Designed with an enhanced comfort and feel in mind, the Chamber-View won't scratch surfaces and has excellent sealing properties. Available in highly visible Hunter Orange, the Chamber-View for shotguns is also water repellant and heat resistant.
