This porting naturally reduces muzzle rise and felt recoil; however, with the “progressive” porting, there is very little loss of velocity. This porting will also be offered on the PAR1 “Pocket AR Pistol” and accessory barrels. Consumers can purchase any Heizer Defense Pistol and now have 2 additional calibers; as well as ported or non-ported barrels to choose from, with even more calibers coming soon.

Heizer Defense Pocket Pistols are proudly distributed by its partners AcuSport, AmChar Wholesale, Bangers, Big Rock Sports, Bill Hick’s, Sports South, Hicks Inc., Williams Shooting Supply and Zanders Sporting Goods.
