You could also use wire nuts....You can get in bulk, and it is not that expencive.....Thats what I use....And it works good.............There cone shaped,it works really good....Im surprised nobody would think of it???? Just push a nail or coat hanger wire through the tip and use epoxy ,and whala you have a dart....or You could alter it and customize it to your specs.........

I'm going to take the chance of looking like a idiot and ask....

What in the world is a wire nut?
Perhaps it's called something else in Aus. I'm struggling to think of what it could be and I work in a hardware store.... ;)
Wire nut..... Kind of contradict's itself to a certain extent....

Please elaborate... I'm intrigued now...

i found these wire nuts, and MY GOD ITS PERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

they are those little things that you use to insulate/keep together wires that are twisted together. you can but them in packs of 100, and the ones that fit in .40 cal barrels actually make pretty good darts by themselves..........

thank you nivekatoz..........!!!!!!!!!!!

Oh ok!!!
Twistlock wire terminal/terminator's....
Yeah ok, I get it now... I sell these.... I'm gonna grab some tomorrow....
Thanks Nivekatoz, I can see how these would be nice... The inline crimp one's would also be good... The internal metal (crimp) sheath would add some great weight too..... ;)
