SR9c. Less recoil and much power

I love it !

For me having a sore hand by accident and thanks to my gunsmith who gave me this idea, I presented this project to you. Custom portion job and barrel polishing on my ruger sr9c, it feels, look and shoot... Just Perfect.

I'd like to know what it does to velocity. I'll bet it drops way down.

Looking good! It certainly adds some cool aesthetics! Let us know how it handles. I have a ported Glock 19 (19c). It is a fun shooter!

Update:
Today I went to shoot and I met up with a pleasant surprise, as I expected from the changes ... turned out perfect.
The recoil is much more smooth and continuous. The power was not affected, and that you use a good quality ammunition (9MM LUGER 147 TRAIN & DEFEND GRS).
Blast through the new ventilation is minimal and fast.
I do not mind the speed, while can do an almost perfect target group.

I think personally, and helps me meet my goal, to reduce the recoil.
It's simply a matter of keep training. Overall seems to be a very accurate Pistol.

I like it !!

I have to question the statement "The power was not affected", it has to be. Only a crono will tell for sure, not just the way it feels. I'd bet that you lost a lot more power than you think. Also the need to reduce the recoil of the SR9c in the first place, are you recoil sensitive? What size groups did you shoot and at what distance?

Looks real good. I was just wondering if anyone had done a compensator or porting on an SR9.

It looks good!
Not sure I'd give mine the same treatment though as I'm not into mods.

looks very nice, down right beautiful. but i do wonder what effect it would have on bullet expansion on impact from the loss of velocity out of a already small 3 1/2 barrel.

if it was just a range gun then id be all for it, looks and functionality if it helped improve accuracy, but for a defense pistol i would be way to worried about how it effects the bullet after it left the barrel

Gunlover; Yes, I'm recoil sensitive !!

*** That's the reason my gunsmith reach this idea. ***

As I said, I have a wrist bone damaged by accident.
Remember is just a 9mm pistol, if you'd like much more power would have a SR40 or SR45.
To me, I don't think so.

I enjoy shooting without pain the next day and go on with my daily routine, I do not want to live with medications.
I am a regular shooter ... I enjoy to shoot after an intense day, take control of my gun and go out with my friends who enjoy what I enjoy ... shoot!

Peace

That makes an already sweet looking gun even more awesome I love the looks. If you dont mind me asking how much did it cost for these mods.

I think it looks great if you had to defend yourself I do not think the bad guy will notice the ported barrel. I shoot a 45/70 with reduced loads and I don't think the deer care but I never tell them.

See if your gunsmith will use a chronograph and see what it did to the velocity. I think all of us here would like to know. Sometimes you do what you have to, and I can understand that. I would have just bought a heavier gun. Shooting 38 special in a large frame 357 is very soft shooting.
