    So just what is the advantage to having a few slices at the end of your semi-auto barrel anyway?

    Mostly reduced muzzle flip or rise allowing you to get your sights back on target quicker.

    Unless it's night time and the extra muzzle flash blinds you more than a stock barrel.

    If they make one for you gun, might take a look at the FireDragon recoil spring instead of throwing more muzzle flash around your line of sight.
