I would NEVER carry a "ported" gun for self defense. Suppose you have to shoot from "retention" or perform a speed rock? In either case, you're gonna catch a face full of muzzle blast that might well cause serious eye damage. Plus, it just makes the gun that much L-O-U-D-E-R.

I've never seen a ported H&K handgun, so I've never seen one like that.

I met a very impressive professional body guard that says a ported gun won't blow powder residue and hot gases in you eyes if you shoot from a retention position. But, how could it not? Or at least, increase the risk or be distracting?

I would not carry a ported myself but - guy at club has a ported Glock - forget the model - and hey - that sucker is so so great to shoot.

Not sure how much ''flame damage'' might occur but it sure has a distinct ''edge''..... flip is very reduced.

My first encounter with porting was on a G-21. I saw a guy at the range shooting it and asked him what he was shooting. He asked if I wanted to try it and of course I did. It was like shooting a .22 - the porting really works.

I've seen an H&K that'd been Magna Ported, but nothing like what you have in the pic.

Maybe it's just me, but I don't think that's from the factory. I mean, what manufacturer in their right minds port through their own company logo? It would seem some enterprising 'smith did the work after purchasing this piece.
I have a Springfield V10 1911 with a 3.5" ported barrrel and I gotta tell you that the muzzle flip is significantly less than my unported Star PD with the same dimensions. Frame on the Star is a little lighter, though and just feels a little less "beefy", if you will. Damn porting seriously blinds you if you have to discharge it in someplace really dark (BG at the foot of your bed, for example). Make sure you hit what you're aiming at first shot or close one eye and be able to shoot non-dominant eye for the second one.

Just my $0.02.

Porting a self defense or carry piece

I used to have a Star PD. Hang onto it they're becoming highly desireable-- almost collectors items.

Ever fired a ported gun from a speed rock position or worse from close retention? Don't. You could permanently blind yourself with the particulate matter and hot gasses shooting directly into your face and eyes. Ported guns were CREATED for IPSC competition and there is a reason IPSC is not IDPA and IDPA PROHIBITS any ported guns! Muzzle flash not only gives you night blindness, it lets the BG's BUDDIES know your exact position. So the BG at the foot of the bed whom you hit COM with your first shot...well he drops dead and his buddies are right behind him and rather PI$$ED off now!

Now, your own muzzle blast has acted as a personal "Flash BANG" device and left you stunned for a moment and since you can't now see them in the darkened room (don't kid yourself that you'll keep one eye shut under extreme stress of such an encounter especially when you've just awakened) you won't know to move off the last position from which you fired. Result? You get riddled with hot lead. But hey, at least that first guy is D-E-A-D and that muzzle didn't flip! Sorry-- don't mean to be sarcastic.

I have never used Prolix. I am currently using Ezox and it works pretty well. Does anyone know how they would compare?

Be well . . .

never saw a HK ported like that. Only the compensated w/ the weight on the end of the slide, Tomb Raider style. No ported guns for me.

Cleaning H&K USP 45 Compact

I was looking at the Prolix line of products to clean my H&K USP 45 Compact but I am not sure it would be safe to use on my polymer frame. Prolix says that it is safe on Glock polymer frames but nothing in particular about any other types. I was hoping someone on here had tried it on a H&K polymer frame and could give me some results about the product???

I didn't want to create a whole new one and then have people say that there was one already started about prolix. I figured I would try this one first. Any help would be great.
