Maybe I'm missing something, but I can't see any sense in porting a single barrel, single shot trapgun. Maybe it just makes more noise, and some shooters like that?

You need a ported single barrel trap gun because (insert name here) shoots one and he is a top shooter .

And the folks at (fill in the blank of the porting company) need their jobs

Thank you for the replies, they kind of reinforce what I was thinking.

I am not sure how effective porting is. My gun only has 16 ports. They are not loud and not hard to clean. I have put thousands of rounds through that gun and only had to clean them twice. It only takes a few seconds anyway. They are on the top of the barrel and maybe that is what keeps it quiet. Maybe they are ported away from the shooter. Never had any complaints from anybody shooting around me. I have heard loud porting before but with a lot more ports on both the over and the under barrel. Mine is an auto. They are cool looking. Maybe they do detract from the value of the gun but I think that would depend on any future buyer. Kind of like a swimming pool. Good if they want one, bad if they don't

I have a ported barrel on my A400, and I can't tell any difference. The only reason I got it done was I won a gift certificate for it and figured might as well. While you do have the porting on a nice long lever, I'm not too sure shotguns have enough high pressure gas to make it worthwhile.

Also I really can't see the benefit in the trap game, unless you're shooting doubles.

I was thinking, "why put holes in a perfectly good barrel?"

Waste of time and money. I have two ported guns. Don’t like cleaning the ports and it’s not that easy for me, either. So I leave them dirty. They aren’t noisy and they don’t reduce recoil for me either.

I suppose that porting ensures that a squib load results in the wad not clearing the choke which makes it a legal ammo malfunction.
Other than that, it's totally pointless.

pressure near the muzzle is so low that porting does basically zero for recoil and very little for muzzle rise. on a singles gun, total waste of money.

the guns i have with ported barrels are an absolute mess to clean.

If someone could invent a method of "plugging up" an already ported gun......he'd be a gazillionaire.

My 11/87 Sporting Clays is ported....on the very rare occasions that I shoot trap with it everyone complains about how loud it is. That seems to be the only redeeming value of the porting as far as I can tell.................

Ported barrels look sweet when you shoot them at night. ;)
