Why do I not think it will work? With a rifled barrel, air can seap around the dart through the rifled grooves in the barrel, losing air pressure behing the dart. The benefit of the dart spinning just won't be able to make up for the lost air pressure.
The reason that rifled barrels work with firearms is because the bullet slightly expands from the heat and fills up the grooves. If someone was to make well-made darts with fins and made the fins spin in the grooves of the rifled barrel, you might get some good results. But, of course, making darts with fins is no easy task, and the added range will not be worth the extra hours put into making darts.

1. they don't fly straight much more often than a well made regular dart.
2. they take longer to make, and it is easy to go too deep in the grooves (i burn them with the tip of the glue gun)
3. They break and get chewed up by your nerfing environment much easier...and thus don't live as long as a "well made" dart.

The problem is making the grooves perfectly balanced and spiraling in unison. Also, the actual amount of spiral can harm the flight of the dart.
I would just ask for alot of people to try to experiment with melting slight grooves in their darts and report results. I will.
