Review: I bought this 3-way over the ct because it matches the milling of the Tickler LPR and because it is the same as the ct .
When I first got it I was impressed by it's looks and installing it was a breeze.
Unfortunately it leaked. It is only fair to say that at the time I installed this 3-way I had also installed the new front block and Tickler so I was learning as I went. I stayed up until 1:00 am working on fixing the leak because I wanted to play the next day. I tried everything I could think of but nothing was working. Of course I thought it was my lack of experience working on my autococker. Well to make a long story longer I thought I fixed it but when I gassed up at the field the next morning it was leaking again. I tried everything from lubing the orings to turing the LPR all the way down and working it back up. Nothing worked. The only way I could get it to work was by applying slight pressure to the actuator rod. This made me think I had a bent rod but then I remembered something I had read on the WGP Forum. Someone had said the orings that it shipped with were sometimes too small and that made sense. So a quick trip to the proshop and two slighty bigger orings later and I was blasting away with a super smooth, super short trigger pull. The tech actually found a flat spot on one of the orings which could have been from the factory OR could have been from me gassing up too fast after installing it. If it wasn't perfectly aligned in the housing the quick shot of gas could have caused it to shave itself on one of the ports. So hopefully this review will help any one who might have problems.
Conclusion: Don't be discouraged if it doesn't work perfectly right out of the box. Be patient and think, THINK, THINK about what is going on. It's incredibly convienent and easy to install. My response to any one who thinks this is a bad product is to consider that it's made by WGP just like the marker you bought it for and let's face, WGP isn't known for shabby workmanship or poor quality. Hands down beats the stock three in all catogories.

I give it a 9 because the only thing that could make it better would be some instructions or maybe some install tips from WGP.
