By walter shipman from USA on 2015-05-19 02:19:04

Things I liked:

Plastic fins save wear and tear on bore, even on the smooth bores recommended. Elongated, narrow point facilitates 'sticking' the target (i like a dart board - designed for steel darts). Only $0.50/each, and reusable with careful handling and use.

Things I would have changed:

Mold the fins with a slight twist, say 1:16", to accomodate rifled barrels. Make 'em in .22 cal. Would like to see how my Viper Shadow Express would handle 'em.

What others should know:

These used to be advertised for rifled bores, I assume they gave it up because the fins are not designed for spin stablization. Yes, i might fire these through my $30 junk store cheapo springer with the rifled barrel. No, i would not dream of putting one through my Baikal MP-61, a Diana, etc. Cuz, if it ain't smooth bore now, even with the plastic surrounding the dart, my 'spicion is it will be smooth anon. OH YES, SAFETY. Just as in BBs, WEAR your safety glasses. These stick most of the time, when you hit the target, but when you hit the li'l wires on a dart board, miss the target completely, etc., you not only have a ricochet coming back at you but one with a point! Keep your shooting distance reasonable, also, say not less than 8 or 9 feet, more if possible to reduce the danger of ricochets having enough power to pierce clothing, skin, etc.

By Tony from USA on 2021-11-21 15:23:04

Things I liked:

Nothing. The darts I wanted were out of stock so I decided to try these.

Things I would have changed:

Darts were undersized and simply fell through every cartridge or .177 barrel I placed them in.

What others should know:

Don't waste your money or time. I'm not sure what you could shoot these through without them simply falling out of the barrel?

    Things I liked:

    They are exceptional, I greatly appreciate the balance and weight. I use them as a lead free alternative. I'm an archer, so the appeal of something that looks like a micro bolt should be evident. I intend to purchase another delivery system in time, and of course I'll be purchasing from Pyramyd Air.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing, aside from maybe elongated projectiles (2.5-3.0 inches)

    What others should know:

    Air gunners know more than most, they are a part of a very long legacy. True hunters all, and I am proud to be numbered among them.

    Things I liked:

    -Nice pointy darts :) -Different colors -semi loose* -NOT "feathers" that fall apart in the barrels.

    Things I would have changed:

    -Extra headweight -use a thicker "weight" ring made of aluminum(or soft metal) to fit a little better in barrels. -more for the price ;)

    What others should know:

    Very nice darts, better than the fluff ones as far as performance except for accuracy with short barrels. I bought these for pests, shooting books show i made the right choice. Plus these are reusable for a while. *its good that these dont fit snug into barrels because of their length, they are too long for some gun breeches, so you just slide them down the tip of the barrel.

    Things I liked:

    Well made little darts, should work well in a break barrel gun.

    Things I would have changed:

    They are too long to fit my crosman powermaster.

    it just shoots well with my Browning Buck Mark Air Pistol. and I always thanks to pyramyd air for fast ship and good quality control.

    none

    Things I liked:

    Reasonably accurate, at close ranges, from pistols, haven't tried any from rifles yet - loading is the issue.

    Things I would have changed:

    Add plastic band around front 'waist' to allow for use in rifled barrels. Would be nice to have these in other calibers, e.g., .22, .25, etc.

    What others should know:

    I would NOT recommend using these in rifled airguns, unless the airgun specifically says it's designed for steel BBs. Even then there will be rifling erosion which will undermine accuracy.

    Things I liked:

    The bolts are easily loaded in my 2002. They look nice and the plastic makes them durable.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would change the design and make the metal nose heavier to increase the posibility of it sticking in the target. Mine didn't stick all the time.

    What others should know:

    They don't have good accuracy in my 2002.

    Things I liked:

    I have found that these bolts work exceptionally well with my Crosman 1377, American classic air pistol on all targets. Since that gun has a rifeled barrel, the fins fit the grooves and the dart will fly further and straighter.

    Things I would have changed:

    4 Petals have to be cut in the solid plastic just below the metal tip to aid in attaining a higher velocity to fire the bolt. Before they were redisigned the petals were molded in to the darts body.

    What others should know:

    They work very well to kill pests of all type.

    Things I liked:

    With the right bolt-shooting gun, these may well outlast the darts, as there's no need to worry about dart "feathers".

    Things I would have changed:

    These do NOT work particularly well in the Marksman 1010 as they do not fit well, therefore the accuracy suffers considerably.
