I just received my CT-3 and was very disappointed. The 3-way barb setup is exactly the same as the 2004 STO 3-way. There is no difference they are exactly the same. The 3-way barbs are about 5mm closer to the actuating rod on the 3-way cylinder, but that doesn't matter because the distance the actuating rod travels is what shortens the trigger pull. Even the distance between the o-rings on the piston are exactly the same. The piston is a little thicker requiring less air, but not by much. The cylinder walls inside the 3-way is a little different because the placement of the holes, but that is it. You can adjust the 3-way the traditional way with the stock STO 3-way or buy this and adjust it from the front of the 3-way. I may be missing something here, but in my humble opinion the CT-3 is just an adjustable 2004 STO 3-way. Remember, the 2004 STO 3-way can be adjusted the traditional way.
I'm not sure if this worth purchasing. You can save $20 and buy a 2004 STO 3-way and adjust it the traditional way. Once you're adjusted you don't have to touch it again. I'm giving it a 2 because I don't see any difference between my stock sto 3-way and the ct-3 except for the option to adjust from the front of the 3-way.
This upgrade is great! It was very ugly to push all the 10-mm trigger-travel. With my stock 3-way i've reduced it to 5-6 mm but it was too long for me, and it was so fcking hard to do! Now with my CT-3 i've got 3 mm travel (at the lower end of trigger), and 1 mm of 3 is because of non-precise push-safe. If you think it's not necessary to keep your gun on push-safe, you could get a shorter trigger pull, about 2 mm. But i'm gonna make myself another [precise] push-safe and install it. The 3-way could be adjusted with allen wrench which comes in stock (for fps adjustment), so you don't need Orr-acle 3-way. Drilled ports in the inner body of the 3-way seem to be a 3 times smaller then in stock 3-way! And the o-rings seem to be the same, so you can take it from the stock and replace when needed. There are six ports for each barb so the flow is maintained.
Results: No short stroke at all (with my fingers)! No leakage at normal LP! No blowback (i achieved)! No troubles with adjustment!
You better don't install it if you don't see the difference between 10 and 3 mm. I didn't try out another 3-ways but i bought my CT-3 as the best on the market

When I first recieved my CT-3 i realized that the CT is simply a orracle 3-way without the adjustment knob, making it a very good buy (I paid $43) and is also a huge upgrade from the stock brass 3-way. It installed with no leaks and greatly improved my ROF due to its short action. once again a great product made by WGP
Buy this product. It is the best 3-way your money can buy, the only other product that rivals this is the belsales hollowpoint 3-way. you simply can not get much better
allows tiny trigger pull
Barbs are a little big, I switched one with my STO 3way.
Well this was maybe the best purchase Ive made for 20 bucks in a while (used price)..Because this thing absolutely rocks! I love it..Instillation was pretty easy, and then I went to the tests..First off, it took me less then 10 minutes to get my cocker timed! and that was to a point so I could do a sweet trigger job..So I have my hammer released at like the very begining of the pull, and then the recock as soon after w/out blowback..So now my trigger pull is like 1/5th of the stock! and it's really smooth and snappy too! I really like this thing, it kills my STO 3way..The external adjstability is really convienient! =D
I really recommend this 3way..It's a great product. I love it! go buy one! =D
This 3-way is basically the orracle 3 way but instead of having the knob at the front you have to use an allen key, its also 10-20 bucks cheaper. I got this at skyball for around 60 bucks canadian, took it home and put it on my gun. I did this without really knowing what i was doing(still new to autocockers). I had a leak out of hte front of it and had no clue why. I bought this 3-way because someone said it had one of the shortest throws on the market, which is true, and not because it super easy to time your gun. So it turns out i had to put the knob in farther, stoped my leaking problem. I retimed my gun after i figured out how and all that stuff, and got my pull down to around 3-4 mm. I didn't like how it was , so brought it around 5-6 mm, and it was super easy to time after that. I got it to suck balls in about a minute. With this 3-way you no longer need to mess around with the spool, you just simply turn the knob. The scratching thing is my fault, i hit it with a wrench when i was taking off the LPR. The stroke is smooth, looks the same as the stock 3-way however, its just annodized.
Good 3-way, easy to time the gun, short stroke, good bang for the buck, smaller then stock 3-way. 9 because of the scratching thing, not really its fault, just scratched easily.
