Ported Barrels

My Savage 99 always had excessive muzzle jump which affected my shooting. So I did a little research and sent this .308 to Magna Port in Michigan. Their skilled craftsmen formed four slots at the muzzle which reduced recoil and eliminated muzzle jump. Now I find this a joy to shoot; it was money well spent. Cost to me was about $130.00 Disclaimer: I am not employed nor compensated by Magna Port in any way for endorsing their service.

For a time, Marlin ported their barrels with multiple round holes which is the same concept but different approach to eliminating muzzle jump.

My Marlin 45-75 Guide gun has a ported barrel, I never had an opportunity to shoot one without a ported barrel so I have no caparison what it would be like without it.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

What’s the sound level like with having it ported?
