My New Darts, very easy to make

Unread postAuthor: jsefcik » Wed Aug 03, 2011 10:18 pm

I took some 12 gauge shells, using a bench grinder, i took off the metal bands and front metal plate , and made the smooth until it fits in the sch40 3/4 really nice, and i can blow them out like darts( just for testing)

Then i took nails/screws and hot glued them in , some are half way in or all the way, depened on screw and nail size

They are crazy when it comes to accuracy

Tell me what you think guys!!!
Would love to here what you think =)

Silly question, isn't it easier to just take a 12 gauge wad and put a screw through it? Much easier to make, doesn't need glue, already fits well in a 3/4" barrel, lighter so will fly faster...

I've have done that but the kind you are showing some times the are too tight , I think but using a different wad works well , using a wad and shell work pretty well,

20 gauge wads fit in 1/2 PVC
And plastic sabot rounds for in 1/2 inch copper with a nail
