After about a year of ownership I decided to have my EDC ported. I have had this process done on a variety of guns in the past (35 Remington 14” contender, .4 5/8”.45 LC Blackhawk and a .44 Magnum S&W Mountain Gun) so I knew what to expect. As with the others, Magnaport did great work and had my gun back in 10 days. Perceived recoil was reduced, especially muzzle flip. To try and quantify the change I'll subjectivity compare some ammunition fired after porting with what ammo it felt like out of the pre ported gun: Blazer 158 grn. .38 Special +P felt just slightly warmer than 148 grn. Target wadcutters Fiocchi 142 grn. FMJ .357 Mag. felt slightly warmer than the Blazer 158 grn. Above. Before porting I wouldn’t shoot more than 25 rounds of magnum ammo per range session and it was an uncomfortable chore. Most of my practice was with specials. Ported, I went through 25 rounds of +P specials and 100 rounds of the Fiocchi magnums and it was a pleasure! I also tried firing from a speed rock / retention position with no ill effects. Although, you do feel a warm breeze, I didn’t notice any particles blown on my face. The only effect to my shirt was the usual vertical line from the cylinder gap but nothing from the ports. My groups even tightened up a bit, probably from the psychological effect of lower perceived recoil.
