NEW Pro-Guide3 triple guidetm
The Silent, Proprietary fitting, Triple-Guide Tuning Kit Design for Airguns
Vortek Products Incorporated, long known for innovation in retrofit airgun products, introduces the new Pro-Guide3 Triple-Guide, Damping Tune-Kit. This new tune-kit will assure all spring piston airgun owners’ greater performance due to the damping technology that significantly reduces vibration and presents a lower decibel report with less piston rebound.The Pro-Guide3 provides a very smooth, quiet, vibration-less felt shot cycle. This new damping module in a form of a complete tune-MODULE, quickly responds to the mechanical nature of a spring piston hysteria through-out the compression chamber. This is a new epoch in spring piston air gun history that requires no machining to achieve a smoother, minimum noise shot cycle.
Though the PG3 is similar to the PG2 design, the NEW PG3, is equiped with equal-3 guide arangement with a few design changes that allow the customer (tuner) to custom fit, modify its performance easily having full use of all spring wire tensile.
The NewPG3 assembly is a equal guide arrangement. Gist, each one of the internal guides nearly split equally making up for total stroke length and Outer PG3 shell stationary to them centered mass of deflection.
The PG3 Top-Hat has the actual Pitch of the spring built right in-to it, called the Helical Top-Hat (Hth tm). The spring is open coil (OC), which allows more consistent velocity build across each of the same kit models one to another. Just a tool cut away from modifying the spring customizing its length, varying the power to pellet weights, etc. This is very important in the Countries legally having ft. / lbs, joules limits. We have tested the PG3 Foot pound output and found kit after kit the consistent OC design staying under its limit of 12ft/lbs.
Likewise, with a quick turn, (Note, because of the nature to "full power" tune, some full power kits, ie: HO, SHO, may not have turn adjustment feature) the top-hat positions to another pitch position adjusting slightly the power output, up or down. PG3 kits HO, SHO may, maynot have the turn feature for thier is no need for under 12ft/lbs. But will have oc, open coil design.
The newPG3 Helical OC spring-allows all wire in the spring to be loaded and released freely rotating on its axis. No bind given due to closure imperfections. Furthermore, added deflection equals slight more output.
Parities to conventional two guide tune kits and the damping noise there of:
PG2 precision fitted guides that add beam strength to the spring thru out its use.
PG2 performs dynamically as a static and rotational bearing reducing radial piston movement*
PG2 consumes more noise with additional damping resources.
PG2 Encapsulates all power, lubrication and noises transmission
PG2 Partitions and supports adding interference between metal moving air gun components*
PG2 Levels out dynamic movement of internal parts post firing
PG2-A comprehensive spring noise inhibiting encasement, at any power output!
PG2 More damping material allocation muffling the noise burden of the power spring.
PG2 Very Easy to install, most effective kit drowning out noise while enhancing power!
*piston seal(s) options included if stated in each kit.
The Vortek Pro-Guide2/ triple-guide3 dampens isolating noise quickly!
The heart of Pro-Guide2/3’ability to dampen more than any other form of kit today is its Dual Guide, built-in damping guide system. Pro-Guide2/3 hydraulically floats the coil spring using no tight guides, which gives the shooter the expected velocity performance from their gun. Further this retention module combines technological advanced materials that absorb vibration and are not affected by weather.
In addition, the technology allows for smoother, easier cocking due to its proprietary dual guide design that stabilizes the cocking stroke from beginning to the end of trigger engagement. Further, there's no need to re-lube once installed for the Pro-Guide internally retains the factory lubrication for the life of the system. Affordable, easy to cock, smoothest shot cycle and quiet. The Pro-Guide2 is the most comprehensive damping tune-kit in the market that you can buy providing the highest level of influence over spring noise without compromising down range velocity and accuracy. The Pro-Guide2/3 allows you the flexibility tof quickly change the performance of your air gun. Isolates vibration acoustics, minimizes bounce, piston slam and gives the shooter the highest level of air gun performance at a minimal cocking effort!

Tight Guides and Tar New Technology
Above the PG2 module is shown a typical spring guide, washer and spring from a well-known air gun manufacture. This guide and spring arrangement, when tested, produced an average velocity out-put in .22 caliber using 14.3g pellets of 689 fps.
Most all OEM spring guides are molded and are undersized to allow ease of manufacturing and reduced cost. Due to the open tolerance requirement between the guide and spring it's free from spring bind thus the highest velocity can be expected from each gun produce using this power arrangement. However, due to this open tolerance the spring noise is amplified as well.
The PRO-GUIDE2/3 dual guide damping kit arrangement, though with less spring wire and compressed power, produced an increase average velocity of 720 fps, using the same air gun and 14.3g pellet ammo!
The PRO-GUIDE2/3 Guides are machined from a solid billet material. This precision machined assembly in action adds beam strength against mid spring cant. With their exact, matching tolerance and proprietary shape for each air gun it's designed also helps in reducing the chance of piston bounce. It is the ultimate, drop-in (DIY) spring guide kit for eliminating hysteria-shock and vibration from springs in air gun shooting.
