Wow how did you come up wiv that

ive made these before and made needle darts by stripping the ends of an earbud (one with a hollow stick) and wrapping the pin in masking tape before inserting into the earbud stick with a lot of glue...these were quite effective...possibly could be used to administer poison.

how does it work
Gigodorias3 years ago
Yes. It is possible to make one of these that shoots out of the pointed end instead of the blunt end. Just reverse the firing mechanism. I don't really know if it is more efficient. Personally I would be fine with either one. I would probably want a plastic/rubber grip around the whole thing, except for the mechanism. Make it look like a REAL ballistic knife by painting the thing a dark grayish tone, adding a more concealed/realistic look.
I found that if you extend the peg by cutting it a little longer you a slight bit more of power and range. due to the fact that your trigger (spring) has a little bit more time to speed up propelling your projectiles (tooth pick or matchs). you can always try this and experiment with it

Dam! I stuffed up, instead of putting the gunpoint where it is in the pictures i put it the opposite.
Will it still work and how do you put the spring on?

Very nice ! There is no piece of fruit out of the danger zone in my house now . Also, an extra notch at the end and you have a sort of safety; not that it's deadly, but it is irresistable!
