    In
    the real world, Tracer ammunition
    (tracers)
    are bullets
    that are built with a small pyrotechnic
    charge in their base. Ignited by the burning powder, the pyrotechnic
    composition burns very brightly, making the projectile visible to the
    naked eye. This enables the shooter to follow the bullet trajectory
    in order to make aiming corrections.
    When
    used, tracers are usually loaded as every fifth round in machine gun
    belts, referred to as four-to-one tracer. Platoon
    and squad leaders will sometimes load their magazines entirely with
    tracers to mark targets for their soldiers to fire on. Tracers are
    also sometimes placed two or three rounds from the bottom of
    magazines to alert the shooter that their weapon is almost empty.
    Tracer
    rounds may also ignite flammable substances on contact from a nominal
    distance.

    Obviously,
    some of the above does not apply to airsoft, but tracers are still
    useful (and fun). They can be used in night games, inside houses, low
    light time of day, etc. They actually are very visible, you don't
    need full night to see them, surprisingly. While they look cooler the
    darker it is, they are useful much before needing flashlights in a
    game.

    How
    does an airsoft tracer work? The tracer BBs are special BBs made of
    fluorescent material, much like some toys or your watch: they absorb
    light and then emit it for some time. You can test this with a
    flashlight, or even daylight.

    The
    Big Dragon Tracer Unit is a mock silencer (-14 mm thread), made of
    metal, that you screw onto your barrel (it works with any type of
    gun: electric, gas o spring cocking).


    Unscrew
    the tube from the attachment system to reveal the interior: in the
    front you will find a 4 AAA batteries (included) that power the unit.
    You also get 50 fluorescent BBs to try it out.

    Hidden
    and protected by a clear plastic tube are the tracer unit's working
    parts: at the entrance is a light barrier (like on chronos) that
    detects a BB coming through and sends a signal to the flash housed in
    the front, so that it emits a short but strong beam of light, as the
    BBs pass through. The special BBs (I use Madbull, but any will do)
    absorb the light and glow as they fly out to your target. To prevent
    accidentally wasting battery, there's a switch at the bottom.

    If
    you are shooting in a very dark enviroment, the light coming from the
    tracer's flash will come outside and kinda look like the muzzle
    flash from a real firearm.
    You
    can of course shoot in semi or auto.

    It
    weighs less than 200 grams (7 ounces) and is 143 milimeters long,
    making it usable on both rifles and pistols.

    Built
    quality is top notch: nothing even dares to move around, creak or
    else. There are bad reports about the Jing Gong's version (QC and
    all that). But mine is holding up like a champ and performing
    beatifuly.

    Price
    is OK: 36 $ + 6 $ for shipping, which is a steal.
