That is just the angle of the camera and I have no idea how it was cut, in fact I was as suprised as you because I had no idea how it would look.I tried to photo it with a better camera angle.

EDM - "Electrical Discharge Machining"

how do they cut the barrel port?


....any chrono numbers before/after? I'd also be curious how big a fireball it puts in your face, considering you've got a light on there, I am assuming you expect to be needing it at night. Do check it out before you surprise yourself....

I have owned ported weapons and they dont put out a fireball. In fact I have never been night or elsewhere blinded by a ported weapon. What it does do is help keep the recoll down.

$150 isn't half bad, I'm interested in how much recoil it kills.

Also, what did you do to the engraving on the slide to color it red, hobby paint?

So there is no refinishing of the slide necessary after they EDM the ports out of it?

I guess not.

no need for hobby paint. crayons, wax pencils, etc., all work well. just don't get solvent on it.
