Barrel porting is for competition guns and could also be pragmatic in the case of stronger recoil woods guns. That's about where their usefulness ends in my opinion.

I was shooting my 30 carbine Ruger Blackhawk with a Mag-na-port barrel and as the afternoon shoot continued into the evening the Ruger became a Pink Floyd concert! It was rather entertaining, but useless for any real accuracy.

I have the xd v10 and shooting practice ammo have noticed the flash. I dont find it as blinding as everyone says. But while running through my pd rounds (which are fed. Hydra-shok's) along with the reduced recoil, i have yet to have one flash me. So in conclusion, i feel is more about the ammo you choose. And as for sight acquisition it seems to stay on target easier, even though it may be all in my head. Its all about personal preference. IMO

Does it blacken your front sight w powder residue ? I read a Glock thread o. Ported barrels and there wasn't much positive input. I was surprised, people love compensated 1911s and I was wondering if it was a Glock thing...

I absolutely love mine! But that, IMO, is the only draw back. After around a hundred rounds or so it turns into more of a gray dot, rather than white, but nothing a q-tip or a shirt tail wont take care of.
