    The 40 is a bit snappier round, so the porting would be a bit louder with it. I have had a v-10 for 4 years or so now, and do carry it on occasion. It isnt noticeably louder than a standard Colt officers model, and thought the porting does help with follow up shots, its isnt bad without porting (even in a LW model). The Reason I picked mine up was the price, just too good to pass up. It has been reliable with factory hollowpoints, and even my reloads, once I figured out where the COAL needed to be for this gun. It isnt as accurate as my Government model, but it still prints neat 4" groups at 15 yards, so I am comfortable that in a self defense situation it will be plenty accurate for my needs.

    I don't need porting, I just got a great price on the gun. I have another 1911, but with the trigger work on it, my local LE would never sign off on that as a carry gun for my permit.

    not sure what people are looking for. common sense tells one that any ported gun will be louder.being ported does not make it a bad gun.the type of gun dictates the type of shooting you will be allowed to do. if one shoots a gun for something other than it is made for you will have problems.i read every post and looked at ever problem stated. I have not had any of those problems.i have put hundreds of rounds thru my v10 and never had any of the problems stated.i am a retired deputy sheriff with 25 years of service.i will not and never did have a gun that would function poorly because my life depended on it. a micro gun is not made to shoot like a full size .that is where a person will get into problems.it really sounds like people do not know what they are shooting.shooting the correct ammo also makes a giant difference. I shoot 230 gr ammo with a a Winchester t-series bullet.people scare me that have guns and do not understand what they are doing
