    It's millimeters that count in this one:) <br>Do you think rollers would make any sense here? Considering the would be sturdy enough.<br>Also is there any reason why it doesn't have a trigger guard?

    Yer I was wondering why the rubber started at the end of the fork before, but didn't want to criticize <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_lol.gif" alt="Laughing" longdesc="7">

    Rollers would simply make the weapon too bulky. A spy pistol needs to be as compact as possible. <br><br>The draw force is so high that you need a long trigger, to overcome the friction. For such long triggers, trigger guards make very little sense - and would look bad, too.

    Made the first "007" dart for my James Bond pistol. <br><br>I used four shashlik pins for the shaft. Sawed off the syringe thumb rest and glued in the four wooden pins. Looks good, fits well, seems to work! Have to do some tests soon. <br><br>2 ml is a lot of liquid... proper poison that is effective at that volume would not be hard to find. I'll test it with cherry juice, of course!<br><br><br><br><div style="margin:auto;text-align:center;width:100%">

    That is misleading.<br><br>The arrow is just long enough to entirely fit in the barrel. The syringe is directly in front of the muzzle when the weapon is cocked.

    Is there something keeping the bolt from falling out?

    And the sudden power won´t empty the syringe and then accelerate it forward?<br><br>So like 1)Waterpisto l---> 2)Dartgun ?

    <span class="postbody"><br><br>I don't think so, because the kinetic energy of the plastic tube and the dart is "negligeable" in that case... but I also think that it will not work as wanted, because at impact on target the arrow will not "push gently and slowly" so the liquid will not pass through the needle</span>

  16. I have emptied blowgun dart syringes so it is quite likely to happen on the forward momentum unless it is in someway held from traveling backwards.

    Ballistic syringes for tranq guns use a steel ball to push the plunger in the momentum of the hit.
