    I have always had good service from Angle Port. They do good work with fast turn around.

    Hell, I would drill some holes for you for nothing! Then I could use a rattail and "teardrop" em! No charge! Tom Rhoads

    If you don't like it I will weld it shut and Tom could try another design.

    Personally I don't care for porting. It came on my Browning XT combo and I shot it for a few years. I didn't like how dirty everything got and really didn't like the idea of porting.

    Thank God my Caesar Guerini doesn't have any porting.

    Save your money for shells, porting will lower the value of you trap gun.

    Not much difference in felt recoil or muzzle rise to justify the added noise, cleaning, and flying debris.

    I have the the teardrop style, my only complaint, the ports blow burt powder residue into the ribs making it a pain to clean. I also have guns with ProPort and Seitz style and have no complaints with either.

    Unfortunatly the reason I need it ported is that someone took a drill to it. I think if I port it with a well known porting it will help the value. The drilled holes did hurt it. If it was not already proted I would not have it ported. I really wish that it could be repaired and not ported. Thanks for any insight.

    I doubt that anybody would agree to port a barrel that had been subjected to a Black & Decker job, I'd guess any company that does legitimate porting wouldn't accept the liability?

    Old Cowboy,
    I spoke with Angle port. They want pictures and think they can help me based upon my description.

    If the holes are not too close together, MAG-NA-PORT in Michigan will try to re-do porting via EDM, they have to look at the barrell before they can give you an answer, if it is possible they will try it.

    I have a perazzi o/u barrel that was ported and welded closed. The barrel had to be reblued, in cetain lights you see shadows of the welded ports but not on the inside of the barrel. The barrels have at least 10,000 rounds since being closed with no issues.

    You may wish to consider having the ports welded closed. I think Kelly Alor would be someone to contact for this work or Briley.

    I did not realize that it is possible to have the holes welded up without killing the value even more. I will contact Kerry Allor and also Briley to check with them. Thanks.

    Briley does the "tear drop" style. I highly recommend Briley.
