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.

+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!

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.

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.

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.

I am a certified Glock armorer. And also a professional jeweler, so I know my way around a gun and metals. :)

Because of balance and integrity issues the ONLY way to safely port your slide is with a CNC machine.
Bingo, being a certified armorer doesnt always mean that you can do things properly just because you took an all day class lol I +1 the CNC machine

I know where his mind is, being a jeweler requires some very skilled use of hand tools but even surgeon like precision won't work here. CNC services are reasonable too usually, look around local.
