A Brief History Of Primitive & Traditional Blowguns

Blowguns
Our blowguns are available in five calibers, either 56.25, 59.37, 62.50, 65.62, or 68.75. They may be ordered in lengths of from 5 feet up to 8 feet, depending on the model. These are currently made of hardwood, and steel tubing. All of our models are designed to shoot both marbles and darts. If you smoke or have reduced or small lung capacity, we recommend you begin with our smallest caliber. We are unable to accept credit card payments for blowgun orders, so payment must be made by personal check or money order. If you have questions regarding your order total, e-mail us prior to sending payment. At this time we are not able to ship products on this page to customers outside the US. As soon as the logistics and legalities have been arranged, these products will be available worldwide. Also, prospective customers in California and Massachusettes should consult your state laws prior to ordering.

Unless otherwise requested, wooden mouthpieces are stained to match the tube. Be sure to include your bore, length, and finish preferences on the order form.

Darts
Our standard 1/4 inch diameter wooden darts come with steel points. These projectiles will stick in standard archery back stops such as straw bales, saunders mats, ethafoam, & etc.

Wood Bead Fletched Darts With Steel Points

These are our most accurate projectiles due to the spin imparted by the wood fletching. Wood fletched darts have been found to give greater accuracy at longer ranges than our earlier feather fletched darts. They also have far greater range than traditional drag stabilized darts. Our wood bead fletched darts have a bead behind the point to act as an air seal piston. These are quick and easy to load, but must be ordered in the correct caliber to fit the bore of the blowgun in which they are to be used. Wood bead fletched darts sell for $45.00 per dozen if ordered and shipped with another item, or $50.00 if ordered alone. This price includes postage to customers in the US.

These are similar to the darts used by natives in the East Indies. Our primative darts are six and three quarter inches long overall and have a round cork ball at the tail end to act as an air seal piston. These are quick and easy to load, but must be ordered in the correct caliber to fit the bore of the blowgun in which they are to be used. Primative darts sell for $24.00 per dozen if ordered and shipped with another item, or $28.00 if ordered alone. This price includes postage to customers in the US.
