Review: We'll start out with the not-so-great. It's not too much fun trying to install this thing if you just try to throw all the parts together without reading the instructions. You're guaranteed to loose some little spring or pop a pin in the wrong place. However, unless you're an ape, you shouldn't have this problem. Mine came with a website that had extensive instructions and pictures on the box. Also, the Vortex needs to be lubricated to work properly. I used automotive grade silicone based grease, but it seemed a little thick, so I added some white lithium to the mix. This concoction has served me wonderfully for thousands of clicks.

Now for the good. This thing does exactly what it says it will. It's stronger than the stock piece. It's smoother than the stock piece. If you manage to break this ratchet, you should stop using your marker as a pry bar. Also, it allows the Cyclone to keep clicking right down to the last shot before the tank runs out, which is nice. I love it, and I'll have one in every marker that's got a Cyclone.
Conclusion: Every Cyclone should have one of these. Anyone who's ever broken a ratchet or been annoyed that the Cyclone stops clicking when you still have dozens of shots left will find relief with the Vortex
10 out of 10
