There was never any doubt which pistol was easier to shoot. The ported 22C really took advantage of the hot round's gas discharge to soften recoil.

The low-mounted non-luminous combat sights (left) of the 22C showed narrower slits to either side of the front sight. This made the ported gun slightly harder to shoot accurately, we thought.
The 22C has two 0.40-inch-long ports at about 1 o'clock and 11 o'clock approximately 1.2 inches back from the muzzle. A corresponding set of vents have been cut into the slide. They run forward about twice the length of the ports.
