Step 1: What You Need

what you need

- a piece of pipe about 4 to 7 feet long and about 1cm in diameter, you can use curtian rod, thats what i used and it works great.

- MOUTHPIECE, for my mouthpiece i used some random stuff i had lying around (plastic pipe stuff) but what works just the same is soda bottle necks just cut them off where you think suits you.

- sand paper to smooth the cut out mouthpiece (bottleneck)

- good super glue (to glue the mouth piece and other stuff in the future)

- paint or camo cloth (optional, only use if u want camo)

DARTS

- paper

- sticky tape or super glue

- bbq skewer or nails for the darts

- a FILE to sharpen the nails (optional)

Step 2: Mouthpiece

now get the pipe/ hollow rod and the bottle neck and glue it to one end of the pipe NOTE: this will be the shooting end.

Step 3: STRAP AND CAMO JOB

Picture of STRAP AND CAMO JOB

first do the camo job then the strap because then you will not have to paint over the strap or cover over the strap

find a elastic strap at least 50cm long (i used the elastic out of a pair of old camo pants)once cut out then simply glue it in the middle of the blowgun
see pic

once that is done you can give it the camo job COOOOOOL
u can either use camo cloth or paint, paint is good but with cloth it takes away the metal rod look and i used cloth, if you chose cloth just simply cut out sections glue it, and for the paint well paint what you think will make it blend in to your surroundings.

Step 4: DARTS

Picture of DARTS

now to make darts you need the materials on step1 under darts
Both darts are great preformers although they have their goods and bads

BBQ SKEWER

GOOD
- it is light
- easy to get
- floats
greatfor fishing
BAD
snaps easy
floats around
in the wind


NAIL DART
GOOD
- high impact(hard metal)hitting)
- dosent snap
- easy to sharpen
- dosent float around
- has a overall further distance
than skewer
- high accuracy

BAD

dosent float
falls faster than
skewer


HOW TO MAKE

Cut out a square about 5 by 7 cm
cut of a bit of one corner, then roll into a cone from that corner, once in a cone tape it enough but not to much so it stays in a cone shape, then put it in the barrel point first so you know where to cut the paper off so it will fit in the blowgun, make it so it dosent fall out once in but so it is easy to shoot out.

now slide the nail or skewer through the paper cone ( through the small end, move the cone right to the end then tape it or glue it on.

Does any one know how I can make a mouthpiece with a safety for my blowgun some how please I know how to make the mouthpiece I just can't figure out how to make the safety for it can some help me please

freeza36 (author)2012-02-24

Hey i just wanted to know your input to the question that Higgs Boson, myself, and another one of our friends are all asking. What can be done to make the blowguns better at this point? Yours and ours are practically identical, except for the darts. Even with the best darts we can make, they still only ever shoot accurately at a max 35 feet. What do you think?

SimonLearnsNewThings (author)2011-05-08

will 5' of 3/4'' PVC work?

potmom (author)2010-10-23

aluminum can darts work well
       not fast but powerful

summe (author)54562010-02-12

how do u make those??

kool_aid465002 (author)2006-10-23

hey if you get a needle with the balls on the end and shove one through the eraser of a pencil and spin some yarn around it that works well

there's an instructable that shows exactly that, forgive me if its yours, but I cant remember the author.

 it's cheeseduck

found it, itshttps://www.instructables.com/id/EX8AWZ0D5WEP286SO2/

Kryptonite (author)2009-08-17

Oh wow, I have to try that, sorry for the comment above, I was kind of angsty that night.

PackRat4448 (author)2007-02-22

for the darts u could use golf tees

Kryptonite (author)PackRat44482009-08-01

Too skinny, too light and not long enough. Good thought process though.

Lord_Vader (author)2006-10-19

This is well done. but... Please for anyone who reads this-no mor blow gun ideas, I think if you totaled blow guns and ninja stars we would find they make over half the instructables on this site.

Bad Donut (author)Lord_Vader2006-10-19

I agree. There's so many of those projects that you could make a group on em.

Invader Grim (author)Bad Donut2007-07-21

actually ive found over 5... i think

dhruvgaara (author)Invader Grim2008-02-14

do you like invader zim? i do i also like chicken guess who made some waffles? and tacos!!!!

Kryptonite (author)dhruvgaara2009-08-01

With an attitude like that in the comment thread, don't blame me if you end up with a blow dart through your rump because some one thought you were a person with rabies. PS. Burritos eat tacos! And the chicken made the waffles! And Invader Zim was the prettiest girl at the harvest moon ball!

Kryptonite (author)Lord_Vader2009-08-01

You can't go wrong with a blow gun, but every one's got a different variant on the dart.

trust me you would have to add in the knex guns

timmy_8911 (author)2007-12-13

how thick is the pipe that you used

Kryptonite (author)timmy_89112009-08-01

As for him I don't know, but if you're asking because you'd like to do the same, either 1/2" or 5/8", or 12mm to 15mm inner diameter. Choose either copper or aluminum, and for a fully grown man, either 6' or 7' is an ideal length for hunting.

Kryptonite (author)2009-08-01

Skewer darts are fun, but it's nothing, I repeat nothing, compared to a blow pipe.

ringring (author)2009-05-16

I SHOT A mag pie atackin a sparrow. i saved the sparows life but the mag pie......not so much thanks

Kryptonite (author)ringring2009-08-01

I would have hit the sparrow, the magpie is an Australian native and if you're in Australia that's a federal law broken. Oh well. Good shot though!

juneapaluna (author)2008-07-31

I just made a smaller one of thise and it is awesome except I just used camo duct tape on mine.

- creative name - (author)2007-08-25

here is a great way to make cheap great working darts http://tomshiro.org/pdart/primer.html but it will take practice. xD

well, that's kind of lame 70 mph isn't very fast, i recommend thin metal stakes from a hardwar store wrapped in duct tape

pcneifert (author)2007-08-25

whens the laser light thing and ammo pouch coming

lennyb (author)2006-10-19

variety is the spice of life my friends i read every post like this just in case someone comes up with better ideas{this one has two good ideas ,using camo cloth and coke bottle for mouthpiece} ive seen six bike trailers on theese pages too but every one was a little different. keep em coming

i agree with both sides to some extent, but mostly with lennyb. yes, there are a lot of blowgun instructables, and yes, they should definitely have thier own section - but every one of them has a slightly different innovation or solution to problems. if it weren't for people who take the time to post, no matter how repetitive, we'd have nothing at at. kudos to them, and keep them coming! lots of great ideas out there!
