Review: Installation
Installing the Zick kit is incredibly simple.
1. Take off stock back cap.
2. Fish out the stock rammer
3. Put a drop of Oil on each of the orings on the Zick rammer
4. Put in Zick rammer
5. Screw on Zick back cap.

Does what it says. Virtually eliminates kick from the Ego. It reduces kick by reducing the acceleration of the rammer during the beginning and end of the firing cycle. You still have the kick of the rammer impacting the poppet, but it's minimal.

Other Stuff
Added bonus: routine maintenance is now tool free. The Zick back cap sticks out enough for me to unscrew it with my fingers. I can leave my hex keys in the bag.
Conclusion: If you don't like the kick of your Ego, it's worth picking up. I don't appreciate it so much during semi-auto, but it's great when ramping. It's relatively inexpensive, which puts it at a solid 10.
