Longshot Dart Replacement?
Posted 13 December 2006 - 01:48 PM
Here is what I Understand at this point:
The LS uses micro darts, with a relatively long shaft.
Original LS sonic darts have a rubber head with a smaller diameter than their shaft.
NERF Sonic Darts have a rubber head with a larger diameter .
Nerf velcro Dart Tag Darts have a rubber head with a slightly larger Diameter.
Traditional stefans are shorter than LS darts, this is why the clip must be modified.
To use Stefans in the LS, I must modify it to remove the "peg"
I can make my own stefans, to a size compatible with the LS and clip, and they will work in the Longshot, HOWEVER, because of their increased length there is a much better chance of fishtailing and innacuracy.
I want my longshot darts to be NF compatible.
Is this accurate?
What commerically available darts can I use in my longshot?

The easiest method for making replacement darts is to simply by dart tagger darts (velcro tipped) and use scissor to trim the dome off.
Alternatively you can take any stock dart, use scissors to cut off the head, and then add a new weight. Here's my method for making my own streamline darts at a lower cost when compared to traditional stefans.

In your experience, do the weighted darts fly better than stock darts?
I have noticed dramatic curves in the flight of my darts, will the streamlined design help eliminate uneven airflow, and provide greater accuracy?
I can experiment with plugging the hole to see if that improves the flight.
I can also experiment with weighting the hollow tips of the darts. How much weight is appropriate? I have quite a few .33g airsoft rounds.

Instead of plugging the hole on the stock streamline darts you should simply use some scissors to cut off the hollow dome.
