This was the first ported gun that I have really notice any decrease in felt recoil and it was considerable.
Magnaport Intl. offers rifle Magnaporting, which is the top ports along with side ports
, which, of course, are the ones for recoil, as the ports are angled rearward. On a heavy kicker like my .45-70, there was no question what I needed. But, as I said, it's still horrendous, as it's a tapered barrel.
