  • Mag-na-port

    we are camped for the next couple of days north of Detroit in St Clair .... I spend most of the morning just south of our campground at Mag-na-port .... their staff is very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable .... http://magnaport.com/.... color me as being highly impressed and I can highly recommend it as a place to visit if/when you are in this area .... I sent my first rifle (a Remington 700 BDL chambered for 300 WBY Mag) to them back in the early to mid '80's .... out of the box firing it was a brutal experience .... along with going to a top quality recoil bad and adding a Mercury Recoil Suppressor, having it Mag-na-ported turned it into a rifle that has been a pleasure to shoot .... based on our experience, Mag-na-porting provides several very positive factors :

    1... depending on which process you pick, recoil reduction ranging from an average of 15% with our porting services up to 45% with our Mag-na-brake
    2... our chronograph tests coupled with those from Mag-na-port that have been conducted over the years. It has been proven, time and again, that Mag-na-porting does not influence velocities to any meaningful extent
    3... a dramatic reduction in muzzle jump makes it much easier to lock on for subsequent shots
    4... no increase in muzzle blast or night blindness

    a series of pictures of the mounts on display in their waiting room .... as a most interesting fact, all animals were taken using a handgun ... .. the elephant is reported to have been taken by a 44 mag

        This was an interesting placce to visit. I was walking around looking at the mounts and turned and found my self nose-to-nose with a musk ox! I am sure glad he was dead; he startled me!

            What was the ballpark cost to do the SIG?

                Looks like a cool place. Were they able to do all your guns while you waited? Or do you have to leave them for a couple of days?

                  I called them three or so months ago and made an appointment for Larry (closurdo) and me to come by and I'd be bringing shotguns, rifles and possibly some handguns to have them ported .... unfortunately, Larry passed away about 6 weeks ago .... we still wanted to come and visit with his widow on our way out west (realistically, we may never be back in Michigan) .... a couple of weeks ago to confirm and let them know exactly what I was bringing .... they asked be to be there when they opened at 9AM .... I was there, they were ready .... after chatting a while and looking around the waiting room I picked up Maureen and we went to visit Debbie .... they told me it should take them about 4 hours to port 3 11-87 barrels, one semi auto hand gun and two rifles and they would call me .... just over 4 hours later they called .... I was welcome to wait in the waiting room but wanted to spend as much time with Debbie as possible

                    Mag-na-porting our 45-70 is our last planned modification .... the insertion of a Mercury Recoil Suppressor in the stock cannot be seen and upgrading the recoil pad isn't readily .... the Mag-na-ported barrel can be seen below .... with us traveling I don't know when I'll get a chance to run some rounds through it but I'm sure looking forward to doing so .... over the years we have used this same combo of mods to several hard kicking rifles/shotguns and the results have been dramatic .... I don't see any reason that it won't really help this time as well

                      That 45/70 did kick a bit with full power loads. The bruise is all healed up and I look forward to testing the mod.

                          today I was able to spend several hours at a range belonging to a private club in southern Minnesota .... bottom line, I was delighted with the performance of both our Henry 45-70 and Remington 11-87 that were Mag-na-ported two days ago .... as noted earlier in this thread, my motivation to reduce the felt recoil of several of our rifles and shotguns stems from the fact I have to take blood thinners and will most likely have to do so from now on .... the result is I not only bruise easily but the bruising tends to run pretty deep and takes a while to heal .... unfortunately, a stout felt recoil is characteristic of the long guns I enjoy shooting the most .... today I fired 50 Cowboy Action rounds and 24 full power Dangerous Game loads through the 45-70 .... in addition, 10 rounds of 3" 12 ga 00-buckshot and 50 12 ga skeet shells .... no bruise, color me a happy camper ... ... we were firing at steel plates of various sizes at 100 yards ... shooting from a bench with 45-70 resting on two rolled up gun cases, it took me several rounds to figure out that with the Cowboy Action loads I had to hold the cross hairs just off the plate at 5 - o'clock .... after that it became fairly routine to hit the 10 and 12 inch plates .... after switching to full power loads it quickly became obvious that the zero was very different .... with them, holding the cross hairs dead center of the 3" diameter plate consistently rang the bell ... at this point, that's close enough for me .... another observation, with the rifle resting on rolled up bags, the Mag-na-porting really shined .... holding the rifle with only my right hand, there was no muzzle jump whatsoever ..

                              the first firearm I ever had Mag-na-ported was our Ruger Redhawk 44 Mag .... shortly thereafter we sent them our Remington 700 BDL chambered in 300 WBY Mag and our Remington 700 all weather 30-06 .....without doubt (prior to upgrading its OEM recoil pad, adding a Mercury Recoil Suppressor, and having it Mag-na-ported) the 300 WBY had the harshest recoil of any rifle I've ever fired .... it was brutal .... so much so that it took multiple sessions to sight in the scope .... our next candidate for recoil reduction is our early edition Ruger Red Label 12 ga .... its recoil is such that it simply isn't fun to shoot
