How to make luminecent tracer ammo.

Unread postAuthor: zeigs spud » Mon Apr 30, 2007 10:03 pm

here is a quick guide on how to make luminecent tracers on objects such as tennisballs, slugs, ect.

Materials-
1-3 non-toxic glow sticks
1-glass cup
plastic wrap
rubber bands ( same number as ammo )
the ammo of choice (prefferabley somthing that has some room within the barrel or obsorbes on the outer layers ex-tennisball in 3" barrel)

step 1
get your glowsticks

Step 2
crack open the glow sticks and drain the liquid into the glass container.

step3
get your ammunition

step4
place your ammo in a square cut out of plastic wrap that can completely cover the ammunition when the sides are pulled up to the top.
pull up sides and slowley pour a generaly small amount of glow liquid in so that when the wrap is tightened around the ammo the liquid is forced to the top and generously covers the ammunition.

step5
tie off the wraped ammo with a rubber band and make sure there is no leaks.

step6
place ammunition in freezer. wait a day then take it ot and fre it preferabley at dusk or night!

You wouldn't have to "crack" it since you already did that to start the glow effect, and to pour the contents into a container. Or at least I would think so.

I wouldn't think that would be an issue, seeing as how the liquid is frozen.

Well it may be fragile and most likely would not adhere to well to the ammo and would fall off this would probaly only be a problem in high power guns though if a problem at all.

I work at a hardware store (Aco) and In know there is Glow paint made by rustoleum. I think it is about $14-20 for a quart. Probably a easier thing to try and faster as well
