From what I've read, 90% of the reviews on the SRC said it sucked balls. The Madbull I've read better reviews on. But Madbull has a few different models of tracer units so I'm not sure about the one you linked to.
G&P MK23 - SMP G&P MK18 - STAR FNC x2 - Tokyo Marui MP5 - CA M24 - UTG M3 - Cybergun M&P 9
For $80, why not just get the Madbull ultimate hop up with the tracer unit? The hop up is great, and the tracer unit is easy to use and install yourself, and in the end should be about $10-20 cheaper than either of your options.

Dutton - that's a great suggestion, however, I have three guys running and gunning under my arsenal. Being able to switch parts like this between us, gives us a little more bang for our buck. Also, this provides the appearance of a suppressor, which some users might like, whereas, the additional bulk, weight, etc. could be a problem.
I was also wondering how well any tracer units work in a GBB applications. Even our AEGs seem to get the barrel dirtier than I would guess...makes me wonder how hard it is to keep the transparent component of the tracer clean. I think the HopUP end is dirtier than the muzzle, but I could be wrong. GBB seem dirtier than AEGs, thus the question.
A DIY project sounds like good fun. I might just have to look into that.
In the end, this is a very gimmicky thing, that just might add a little bit of fun factor in Zombie games and the occasional night game. Being able to attach to a GBB pistol or an M4 is a bonus. The SRC is an inch shorter than the Madbull - which is a plus in my mind.

SRC arrived today - we'll see how it works and post up here. It sure is light in the hand. Another bonus over the Madbull is this unit include NiMH rechargable batterys with a charger. If they work, that just opens the price gap up a little more between this and the MB.

SRC is going back. I did not like the on/off switch. On the one I received, the switch pretty much stayed between the two positions, so you could not tell if it was on or off.
Nice looking unit.
From the review above, the new version TM looks very versatile. The SRC fits nicely on both M4 and actually is okay on a 1911. Not too big.
Kudos to Jon and Jared at Fox Airsoft in Colorado...very good guys to deal with and apparently very resourceful. They found an M24 Muzzle Brake when everyone else simply said out of stock. Caution, they apparently list items as in stock, yet they have to get them from their distributor. This can add a couple weeks to your order.
