    Hey guys,

    I have some questions about ported barrels and compensators.

    1) If you use a ported barrel do you lose pressure slowing the speed in which the bullet goes out the barrel?
    2) Can you use compensators and ported barrels at the same time?
    3) If a ported barrel reduces muzzle flip why wound t all guns ported?

  2. I'm not sure how to answer your question but I just ordered me a two ported 357 sig barrel for my 33

    I had my Glock 36 ported after a friend told me about the positive results he had porting his.

    For my Glock 36, short barrel, .45 ACP, it was a little snappy. Once I had it ported by Mag-an-port, there was a noticeable difference in the recoil. I wouldn't port my Glock 17, there's less recoil and when I watch videos of myself there is very little recoil.

    If you can manage the recoil, I wouldn't port a gun. I carry a Glock 41 most of the time and can control the recoil on it so I wouldn't have it ported.
