Hey so I have an m4 and it has no threads and I think it isn't built to be threaded. I want to know if it is possible to somehow thread it so I can get a tracer on. Thanks for helping a newbie.
Hi guys. A few years ago I realized there were few to no options for internal tracer units on airsoft guns. The only option was the Madbull setups, which required an M4 hop unit. So I decided on developing a circuit for a hop up tracer unit that could run right off the motor in your gun so as to avoid needing switches and extra batteries. I eventually published a guide for a basic unit. I used that circuit for quite awhile, but didn't innovate on it much aside from some reliability tweaks. The last couple years I've been dealing with health problems which gave me a lot of time to work on the design. Looking around, no one really made HUTU's still and to get a decent tracer unit you needed to fork out $100 for a suppressor unit. I was studying Electrical Engineering and wanted to try SMD building, so I came up with a design to use a more professional PCB and have been developing ways to make a drop in kit that is much more affordable and easy to install. This is an install video I did not too long ago of putting on in an AK. Super simple to put in. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DNAFNMiUlwQ This is what I came up with. I'm thinking of calling them 'Beam' tracer units. It's a kit that splices right on to your motor leads, routes the unit to another part of the gun, and then connects two UV LED's to you hop up unit. They work very nicely and, so far, the PCB designs hold up, but are sensitive to being wired backwards. I've got 20 of them right now and am thinking about calling a few CQB fields to see if they're interested in purchasing a few to either sell or put in rental guns. My question to you guys is are these something that there is a market for? What is a fair price for one of these and, considering I've never sold anything on a larger scale , what are some pitfalls I need to watch out for?
