About the ASG B&T Tracer Unit
This is a tracer unit by ASG licensed by B&T, a popular suppressor manufacturer in Europe. This allows you to activate tracer BBs which glow in the dark when fired through the unit. Having the BBs glow enhances your night/low light airsoft gaming experience and allows you to track your shots. This is a very fun accessory to have at an indoor CQB arena. This takes 4 AAA batteries to provide the juice to activate the tracer elements found in the BBs and good for several hundred rounds of nonstop firing before needing new batteries. The unit has an external on/off button toward the back of the can for activation. Try these out with ASG Tracer BBs or your favorite high quality brand of tracer ammo today.
Fun tip: mix these in with your normal .25 BBs so you get the machinegun tracer effect when you are going full auto! Real life support weapons use tracers for reference in aiming so that the gunner can make corrections in their aim. You could also use tracers as a way to alert yourself that you are running low on ammo. Load them toward the bottom of your magazine in higher concentration and by the time you get low and you see more and more tracer shots coming out, that will be your indicator that you are running low.
How Do Tracer Units Work
Tracer units usually will come in the form of a mock suppressor and is attached to the end of your airsoft gun. You will need the mount it to a threaded barrel so mounting it in place of a flash hider or on your threaded pistol barrel would be the most ideal. Tracer units are battery powered and contain an internal sensor that detects when a BB is passing through the unit. Once a BB is picked up by this sensor, a flash of light is emitted internally, shining onto the BB as it exits the bore. With tracer BBs, this flash of light is enough to activate the glow in the dark material and you will see the BB travel for a distance. This gives the same effect as tracers used in real guns essentially. The tracer effect can aid you in tracking shots in pitch black conditions as well as help determine hits. These are very popular for CQB use as a result. Resourceful players sometimes use their flashlights in lieu of a tracer unit to activate the glowing agent.
