Okay, I made a new type of dart that is really cool. I call it the Rattler Dart. With many of the nerf darts I have fired, I noticed that they bounce to a maximum of 6 feet with the darts I made (probably a glitch). My new dart, called the Rattler Dart (because when you shake it it rattles) not only lands a maximum of 2 feet away from what you hit, It also glows in the dark! Both of these combined make the Rattler Dart easy to find, and the mechanism used to make it not bounce so far gives the dart a little harder impact.
Instructions begin here:
take one small copper plated BB and one glow in the dark plastic BB. I use the copperhead and glow in the dark tracer BBs from Crosman, but use whatever you want.
Put the copper one in the end of the dart just as you would any other weight, then put the glow in the dark one in.
cover the end in hot glue, and voila! you have your rattler dart.
When the dart is fired the copper bit stays near the end of the hole in the dart. When the dart lands and bounces off, the copper plated BB pushes on the front, stopping the dart from flying backwards.
Couldn't upload the pics, put them on flickr, here they are.

Thanks for the Flickr link. Does the dart get the same ranges as an ordinary stefan?

I dont quite understand how it "rattles." From what I'm getting from your post you're making stefans with one copper and one plastic glow-in-the-dark bb. Wouldn't the glue hold them both in place so that they don't rattle?

sorry, I didn't explain it well enough. Basically, this is the dart:
(0 o>lllllllllllllll
the glow in the dark BB is held in place by the glue, but there is a small pocket behind it, which allows the copper plated BB to move around. (sorry for the bad visual aid)
Shadowkid33:
It goes further by about 12.5% (if I calculate right), and it flies very straight. I will use these as my darts. Later on I may be selling them, but that depends.
