Why should I use a Ported Barrel & Slide combo?

Adding a ported barrel and slide combo to your Glock pistol is one of the best ways to mitigate recoil and keep you on target in any engagement. A ported barrel vents gasses from the discharge of a round out of the barrel in specific vectors to help dissipate muzzle rise when firing a round. Typically ports vent these gases upwards or at an upwards angle away from the barrel to achieve this.

In todays aftermarket there are many types of ports available. We believe for defensive applications, that venting gasses at the the 2 and 10 o’clock positions on the barrel is the best of both worlds. This significantly reduces muzzle rise, and vents gases up and away from your sight picture. The last thing you want in a defensive situation is sight picture obscured by smoke from your rounds.

NineX19 makes the Vapor system to provide a Ported Barrel and slide combo option to Glock 19 and Glock 17 platforms in all Generations, Gen 3, Gen 4, and Gen 5. All ported barrels MUST be accompanied by a slide that can accommodate the escaping gasses, else you risk a catastrophic failure. For this reason we offer our vapors as a ported barrel and slide combo for G19 and G17 pistols.
