How to Make Ninja Darts for the Lighter Mini Cannon





Introduction: How to Make Ninja Darts for the Lighter Mini Cannon

Several months ago I published the Instructable, How to Make a Mini Cannon from a BBQ Lighter. The mini cannon was originally made to fire airsoft pellets, which it will do quite well. With some time now passed, I have decided it is time to revive the project with a upgrade in ammunition. The following video I think demonstrates quite nicely:

With nothing more than cotton swabs, glue and a length of music wire, some very effective darts can be created. They may be a little small for the 6mm barrel at first, but a little roughing up of the cotton with a fingernail is all that is required to make them expand to the barrel size. In about 5 minutes you can have dozens of darts ready to fly.

Remember never to shoot these at any living thing. These darts can easily do damage at more than 50 feet. The cardboard cutouts shown in the video make excellent targets!

Once again, here is a link showing how to make the mini cannon itself: How to Make a Mini Cannon from a BBQ Lighter

Have fun!

    Could you do a mod for it to be controlled by a string so when you flick your wrist it ignites. i'm planning on making an assassins creed gauntlet and wanted to add something like the poison dart gun from brotherhood.

    Woooooo thats cool! Can it go through skin?

    Check out this mod.

    Is that just oxygen or is there still a alcohol in there?

    There is 91 percent alcohol in the chamber

    ohh so did you put a good amount in there because he only use a small amount on a cotton swab?

    about 1 teaspoon. I can get about 50 shots. The spark ignites the fumes and oxygen then burns out. More fumes form. Add more oxygen. Keep on till all the fluid is gone.

    That is awesome!!!!!!!!!!! That was a good idea you had!!!

    Yes, definitely. Please don't shoot it at anyone.

    Haha i wont just wondering if it would.
