    Who does the most effective porting for reduction in muzzle rise on a doubles gun?

    Can't say I would opt for porting again but the "P" gun I shoot (and have for about twenty years)has Pro Pigeon porting in the bottom barrel. (Came that way from first owner) It does reduce muzzel jump but it also creates some hostile remarks from shooter on the adjoining posts. "noisey". I like it even if they don't. It's your gun..did you buy it to shoot or worry about resale. Some of these gun traders lose more trading then they will ever admit and it's not from a minor loss over porting.

    Well, my fave is "Seitz" style. And I do resent the guys that shoot the bottom bbl of their XTs along side of me on the singles line. Hcp is no biggy.

    My O/U for dubs is Seitz style. Eyster is one that will do that. But Magnaport is a close second. After that I pass.

    Depends how the porting is done. I HAVE been hit with debris from porting with a hard angle. It IS noisier.

    But, if it helps you, then so be it. COmpensators, porting, and the like are usually reserved for higher pressure loadings, so their effectiveness on a 12ga shotgun is severely diminished.

    Now, put an effective brake on a 7mmRM rifle and the difference is night and day, although it is EXTREMELY loud.

    I would go with Angle Port, seems to work the best and very easy to clean.

    A picture or two of your favorite styles would go a long way.

    There is a reason non ported barrels sell better than ported.......friends don't let friends have there barrels ported.

    Porting is a total waste of money....results are virtually negligible in addressing muzzle jump and recoil. The holes are messy, loud, and seriously hurt resale. Some have experienced splits in barrels in/around the ports. All that said...this is America so you can do what you want. Best Regards, Ed

    I recently bought a nice Kolar combo with Wilkinson tuned bbls and porting already done. It didn't turn me off to the deal. Yes Id rather have had unmolested bbls, but with this buyers market I felt the price was right. I don't feel the gun is overly loud or that it impedes squad mates shooting.The porting looks like cylinder head chambers rather than a bunch of holes.Agree that cleaning takes more care.Not a horse trader so not to concerned about resale.Just my two cents.

    I hate shooting next to someone with ported barrels. I've caught powder and lead pieces in the arms and face shooting next to some ported bbl guns. It does seem that some do and some don't. I notice that mostly the cheaper factory porting throws more junk out and back. If you reallywant it get it. Resale would never sway my decision. Just respect other on the line.

    Maybe you should invest in having your stock fitted to you, or have a stock made to fit you. If your gun fits you. It won't have barrel rise.

    My 682 Barrels are magna ported. If it were my choice, I would have plain barrels.

    I'm with the non-porting gang for all the reasons they stated. Dale

    There is good porting that works and bad porting that doesn't work. HMB

    Have your gun backed bored and long forcing cone,I think that helps as much as porting.

    Hi
    Old goat hit the nail on the head, I had a bt 100 stainless the ports filled
    in with lead, carbon and plastic proof positive that porting does not work on
    shotguns ( pressure too low )
