Ported barrels direct gas up and out of the slide to aid in reducing muzzle flip. This can equate to faster follow up shots, or dot tracking during recoil on an MRDS equipped slide.
Note that by bleeding out some of the gasses, you are effectively robbing your slide of some energy. This can cause failure to eject and or stovepipe malfunctions. This is more prevalent with weaker ammunition. A lighter recoil spring and un-captured guide rod can be added to combat this. Do your research on the pros and cons of this. We suggest you run quality factory ammo to ensure reliability.
The 3 and 5 port is applicable to all slide models listed. This is a traditional mid barrel porting with port sizes tuned for a balance of performance and reliability.
SUPER SINGLE **ONLY AVAILABLE FOR GLOCK**
The super single was originally designed for the 43X and 48 to tame its snappiness, but is offered on all Glock slides. This design will allow the barrel to maintain higher pressure and cycle weaker ammo more reliably. The super single is a single large port at the muzzle end. This will require moving the front sight post rearward to accommodate the port.
