Question Pro Raptor II Porting?

Want to do some mild porting on my raptor for competition use to help it stay a little flatter. Thinking a V8 style pattern should do the trick don't need 10ports.
Will also consider some cutting of the slide for reduced weight.

Ideas?


recommended shops?

MagNaPort is exactly the name that came to mind. I like the new porting pattern, versus the old series of holes. Had a heck of a time keeping pipe cleaners handy.

So is it functional? Does it keep the muzzle down or?
