I have been hit twice by porting debris - once at the Kentucky State Shoot and the second time at the Durham Wildlife Club in NC.

So I would say a ported barrel has flying debris and a non-ported barrel doesn't.

"""what does a ported barrel have over one that is not ported?????"""

You will spend two to three times the time effort and elbo grease keeping the porting and the ported portion of the barrel clean, as compared to a non ported barrel.

You will also get more actual use out of your hearing protection when using a ported barrel, but the other shooters will be geting even more use out their hearing protection when shooting with you!

Some people say it stops muzzle rise, reduces recoil, and makes you a better shooter.

About the same kind of things a snake oil salesman says to sell the snake oil.

If it was that beneficial-all the big dogs would be using it. Porting is not that expensive. The only advantage is if you would use it on the bottom barrel of an o/u for your first shot in doubles. Browing seems to be the only company that pushes it on some of their guns. Its cheap to do & is a good sales gimmick.

To port or not to port, that is the question. And the answer is. Port the bottom barrel if you shoot doubles. HMB

i think there may be a lil less muzzle rise- but is your barrel backbored? i think sometimes people will but something they can see such as porting and backboring is a much bigger benefit ,but on the gun itself- it doesnt show!

Do not port!....and it doesn't make any difference when shooting doubles whether the bottom bbl is ported or not...gun fit is MUCH more critical!

Instead of paying to port your barrel, try the ported choke tubes from AngelPort, COMP-n-CHOKE or Briley...They will do the "mental" barrel jump fix (same as a ported barrel) for about $250.00 less than having someone drill into your barrel...plus you will get the experience in cleaning the ports that you will need if you decide to port the barrels..LarryB

I have an Ultra XTR

The Euro Brownings don't have porting.

I was lucky to find a used one here.
