Just ain't loud, it's a whole new pitch LOUD. I have a ported 1911, I'll never do that again. Never noticed no difference in recoil.

Nothing kills a day at the range like the guy next to you have a ported mag. or a rifle with a mag brake for that matter. Many PH's will not let a client hunt with a mag brake or porting. I see the advantage for the shooter but I also have felt the draw back for those around the shooter.

Yes the cylinder are numbered, still haven't made it to the range to try it out.

wow I can't believe it's been over a year and a half since I got this beauty I have only shot it one time and can not even remember how it compared to my srh. last time I tried to buy ammo it was $60 for some American Eagle and I didn't get any. I guess she will just keep sitting in the back of my safe.

Maybe it would be a really slick trick to get a .30 Carbine Blackhawk and get it ported for those local indoor ranges

Had one of their Custom Six SBH the first year they opened. Recoil was like a 357 mag to me. Action was perfect. I also shot a S&W M29 with Ma-Na-Port but could not tell any difference from an unported M29.

Well worth the money. You will like it.

MagnaPort

According to MagnaPort the Predator conversion is their most popular conversion. My Super Blackhawk is already 4 5/8" but I would like to get a few things done to it that are included in the conversion but would opt out of having it ported, it's loud enough already. Having an action job and trigger and hammer jewel polished along with the C-mor front sight would sure be nice.

One thing to note. Especially with shorter barrel lengths. You are effectively reducing the performance. You are loosing the gases a bit over one inch sooner. Not a big deal on the 7.5', but it can be on the two shorter ones. If hunting, I would take that into consideration.

Had my 10 1/2" 44 mag magnaported for shilhouttes, made a lot of difference in the long barrel, but loud.
