Yes, you can port and compensate any rifle, shotgun, semi auto pistol or wheelgun after you get it.

Ok, next question.....is it worth the $$$? Is it beneficial? (recoil)

It reduces the recoil significantly if done right. It will make the gun louder though (wear your ears).

Call up magnaport they do a great job on revolvers, and not just porting they do quite a bit of custom work.

Would a ported gun still be under the original gun manufacturers warranty? Specifically Ruger (LCR) and Smith & Wesson 340?

Seems porting isn't a good idea on defensive guns.....flash and hot gasses going various directions.

Never mind....but thanks for the replies!

Porting works well in high pressure guns with a long barrel. Think 6.5 inch 44 mag or 454 casul.

Supposedly its a bad idea to fire a ported gun without your arms extended. Not sure that means its a bad idea in a defensive gun, but I'm sure people have different opinions. My Glock 17C is my go to home defense gun (compensated model), and I'll stick with that.

The hot gases don't go in "various directions," they go in very specific directions - out the front of the barrel still, and up through the ports. So don't have your body in the way of the ports when firing.

Some say the flash is blinding at night.

Depends on your home. If you have motion sensors on your lights, no problem, but the muzzle flash from a compensated gun will ruin your nightvision and play havok on a moving target for followup shots. Then again, regular muzzle flash from non-HD ammo on a non-compensated gun can do the same thing. If you're comfortable with the 17c you should use it, but a regular 17 might be a better choice if you have the option.

For range use, compensated guns have quicker followup shots but will annoy anyone standing next to you.
