+1 on porting...have a S&W 625 ported and it works great. Tried ported "dot guns" too and it helps with follow up shots...but darn loud!SeventiesWreckers said:I like the way they look without ports. I have a S&W 629 that's ported, and if it really didn't help as much as it does, I'd go to non ported. All the fire & smoke just builds up residue on my Hi-Viz sight, & it's a pain to clean all the time.
At least on my G23C, when I do see the flames it frames the target more than obscures it. The "V" is on either side of the target. That's in daylight or indoor light. I haven't shot it in dark or near dark.bringtheheat said:Yuck. Why put fire in your line of sight? Your eyeballs will not be able to re-sight your target as fast as they could if there was no flash of fame thrown up right in front of them.
I am a certified Glock armorer. And also a professional jeweler, so I know my way around a gun and metals.jonm61 said:Be careful in doing it. If it's not done right, it can be very bad. If you want it done right, take it to a gun smith.
