When I shoot the last round with a Colt M4.
Sorry, thought I wrote it there.

It'd be kinda helpful if you told us what kind of gun you're talking about...

The M4 is simply a variant of the Colt M16 rifle. All of these have a bolt hold open on the last round if they are working properly. That allows you to change mags, hit the bolt release and continue to shoot without racking the charging handle. HTH
