Nice build!

I basically use the same, although I generally prefer Duct-taped Mags over When Three Just Isn’t Enough.

The main reasoning behind this is, that his Galahadric Gun Grease offers buffs to both Fire Rate and Reload Speed, whereas Vow of Zealous Fury gives an insane additional amount of Fire Rate.
I feel this leads to more consistent (cyclical) damage and every second reload gets reduced to an absurd short time.
Although I must admit I never calculated the DPS - so When Three Just Isn’t Enough may still offer higher DPS.

Also, I tend to run a zero-cost Shard Gen as third gear piece. But I guess that’s personal preference.

Important Note for inexperienced WF players: Helix Level 10 (What Shields? vs Over-Overdrive) is an utility choice. If there are enough shield-heavy enemies (e.g. Kleese or S&A) What Shields? is a viable choice. Over-Overdrive is the base choice for DPS.
