I was thinking about sending my 870 barrel in to be worked-over. Is it worth it? What about the porting? I was wondering if the porting increases muzzle flash for shooting in low-light?

Do it!

I have a Gunsite Police 870 with an 18" barrel that was done by VangComp.

I didn't get one with the Comp. I fired one before and at night it will leave a big white V blocking your vision.

My 870 will hold Federal Tactical Buck Shot at 12" at 35 yards! I can use rifled slugs and hit a pop can at 100-130 yards. I have hit a cinder block at 270 yards after 3 tries.

Last week I went to shoot at a Sporting Clays fund raiser, and I could hit clays out just a far as any of the shooters that had fancy trap guns with full length barrels.

If you do anything to your shotgun, get the Vang.

On our department, we have about a dozen officers who have had their barrels Vang-Comped. About 9 of the 12 shoot great patterns. The other 3 shoot about the same as non Vang-Comped barrels. Vang supposedly told the 3 officers that nothing is perfect and their process helps most barrels.
When I have shot them in low light, I have not noticed any excessive flash through the porting but we use reduced-recoil loads and that does help.
