Depth a point is inserted into barrel?
Any one have an idea how much of the point is inserted into a barrel?

Someone is asking about Targets gold points on my review of the Ste Bunting Gen 2 darts and I measured the points at 30mm and they said Target only sell 32 and 36 mm points so which is the right one to use?

2mm seems too small a depth and 6mm seems too large to me?

Sidebar question, are the point holes all drilled equally deep? I have a set of Barney darts that the one point keeps sliding back into the barrel. Told a wee dab of glue will hold it firm. Or are the other 2 point not all the way back into the barrel? Sorry for semi hijack of thread.

Well its a valid point (excuse the obvious pun) because I was wondering if it was a standard too, could be that one was drilled too deep by accident though but I also remember when I did change a few points some seemed to be tighter too.

The 6mm deep maybe be why target points seem so short, i just thought they put short points in until i just checked when you asked

Yank the point out. Stick a toothpick in there and measure the hole depth. Let us know Guests cannot see images in the messages. Please register at the forum by clicking here to see images.

It's been a thorn in my side a lot doing point replacements in house on a variety of manufacturers darts. I found it varies slightly for each manufacturer. Most manufacturers (that actually manufacturer and not farm out to China or someone else) use a handle action press to put their points in. The point is placed in a cradle point down, the barrel placed on top and the press is pulled down to stopping point. Setting the point to exact depth, straight every time. Takes all of a couple seconds per dart.

When customer say they want their points to be 25mm exposed, I have to explain it really doesn't work that way. I can do my best with thread lock and a hand press but no guarantee if you want this specific point that is 32mm long.

So not a standard then.
