Revolver Barrel Porting Fail

Now I’m no expert, but I don’t think they did that right, something looks a bit off. At least they mounted the optic correctly.

  • Um…wow! LOL. That’s pretty bad.

  • David W.

    I saw that and screamed in an office full of people.

  • Ken

    On the plus side, you can cut and recrown the barrel. Fast draw sized BFR?

  • Forest C. Adcock

    I hope this was a diy job and not a commercial job. I would be furious if someone did something like this to one of my firearms.

    • mosinman

      this was definitely done by Bubba gunsmiths inc.

  • Tsuba

    Itยดs me or the guy put an eotech on a rail, on a rail,on the weapon’s rail? It will not be easy to fast draw ๐Ÿ™‚

      Rail Inception…

    • allannon

      Not exactly…it’s a Sightmark. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Kind of like when Beavis and Butthead wanted to get a tattoo of a but, on a butt, with a butt shaped tattoo on it.

    • Mike

      Yo dawg, I heard you like rails…

    • DIR911911 .

      PLUS the eotech is on backwards

      • Paladin

        It’s not an Eotech, it’s a Sightmark, and it is on the right way around.

  • I’m no expert, but I’m pretty sure you f@cked up…..oh, and optics and rails on a pistol…..which is chambered in 45-70….i don’t get anything in this picture….

  • marathag


    Was it done with a angle grinder?

  • UCSPanther

    Did someone take a chainsaw file to the barrel?

  • GPSrulz

    If I saw that at a range, is move away, far away. Cause I wouldn’t want someone to think I was with that dumb S.O.B.

    How to ruin a $1200 revolver using a $50 band saw.

  • mosinman

  • n0truscotsman

    Apparently he had a SIG ‘carbinized” with a stock too.

    The arfcom thread hyperlinked on weaponsman became rather…strange…

    I did give me a good chuckle though, so I would encourage those with a sense of humor to see for yourself.

  • whamprod

    If that were my gun, it would be sent straight back for a brand new barrel on their nickel.

  • Lou Sleef

    Did the guys at Red Jacket do this ? They forgot to spray paint it black.

    • El Duderino

      You forgot carriage mount on a helicopter. Nevah ben dun befoe.

  • El Duderino

  • Gary Laffoon

    I could do a better job with a hand grinder. And, did they run out of mounts?

    Believe Jesus Christ is your savior for your sins. Jesus Christ is God Almighty in the Flesh. This is the Gospel, believe Jesus Christ shed his precious blood and died for you and all of your sins on the cross, he was buried and he rose again from the dead three days later from God’s Power and you will be saved, you are a Born Again Christian and you will go to Heaven forever. All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God to where we all deserve death, destruction and judgement in the Lake of Fire from the wrath of God to where we need a savior to save us for our sins forever. By receiving Jesus Christ’s blood sacrifice as full payment for your sins you will be saved forever. It matters not how much you have sinned in the past, in the present and in the future. Once you are saved you are saved forever no matter what. Good works will not ever save you and no one and nothing else will. That is the Gospel and if you believe in the Gospel you are now a Born Again Christian and you are now saved and you will go to Heaven forever and that is the whole truth. Spread the truth. All glory goes to God forever! Praise God! Amen! (John Ch. 3:16, Romans Ch. 3:25, 4:1-6, 5:9, 1 Corinthians Ch. 15:1-4, Ephesians Ch. 2:8-9) The Authorized King James Version Bible
