I know that a ported barrel puts you into Open Class. But what about an extended ported choke tube?

Also, would a ported choke tube effect the recoil/muzzle rise much?

Ports are ports rather on the barrel or the choke tube attached to the barrel. You get to play with me in open.
No ports at the end of the barrel don't do much at shotgun pressures. For a comp to be effective on a shotgun it needs to be back about 4 to 6 inches from the muzzle at least.
