Consistency, accuracy, works with CO2 and HPA.
Bit of adjusting needed. Guage doesnt fit well with trigger guard.
Ok, I got this product because I wanted the maximum accuracy for my A-5. It definitely worked, my FPS only fluctuates between +-6 at the chronograph and you can really see it with the accuracy.
The first day that I used it, it worked flawlessly and with great accuracy for about half the day. Then my Cyclone ratchet broke, so I got a new one, installed it and then I had nothing but problems the next time I played. It was cold that day, and I might have over-oiled the ratchet, but end result, I'd chop every 1 out of 10 to 1/50 balls. Mildly annoying at the least.
So now I am getting the Cyclone Vortex Ratchet by TechT and taking out a bit of oil, and if it isn't as cold, I will hopefully have a great marker again.
Edit: Everything's been fixed. I REALLY love the Stabilizer, I got 272, 276, 274 over the chrono... Everything is working flawlessly and the eliminations are racking up.
Buy this if you want to get the utmost out of your A-5. I would suggest polishing your internals before doing this, then playing with that, because you may be satisfied. If not, get this and have fun...
Don't get a guage unless you REALLY want it, and be aware that there is a 2000 shot (you can dry fire) break in period.
9 out of 10

As a note, on cold days the cyclone feed of the A-5 pushes the ball into the chamber too hard, cracking the more fragile paint casing (the cold makes it brittle). The paint chopping was almost definitely not an effect of the regulator and probably didn't have anything to do with a problem with the ratchet. A-5's just don't work well in the cold (from my experience, there may be a way to fix it but I don't know it).
