Crazy Darts.

Unread postAuthor: rna_duelers » Sun Aug 06, 2006 1:28 am

I have recently made a new sniper cannon which i have yet to submit..lost my camrea charger :x .Well any ways i was using some paper cones as amo with a nail in the end of them and sometimes they just fly all over the place due tot he paper loosing its shape in flight or in the barrel and i saw a few of those calking tube nose funnels lying around my shed so i cut it down so ti fit my 1/2 barrel well and stuck a 3 inch nail in the end of it and those things are mean!Work alot better then the paper cones darts and are sometimes re-usable and i shot my shed door testing the penetration at 130psi and the nail went clean thought my door and stuck in the wooded wall behind it and the plastic cone was on the ground all messed up but i was amazed at the penetration of this.

Nice. I really need to make a small pneumatic so I can make custom ammo like yours.

I`ve made those before, one got stuck in my garage door after going through 1/2 masonite, too bad they are only like 1 time use because the funnel gets mounted.

thats a good idea ill have to see if its good for my small barrel, have you tried the elmers white glue orange caps, great and if they dont fit perfectly you add a layer of tape, works perfect with a nail.

I got no idea what the elmers glue is but i guess they use the same type of plastic funnel tip.And yeh they do suck for the 1 shot only but they do mess things up i got a nail to go through a 1.5mm steel sheet an kept going,i thought that was a pritty good shot.
