Type "U" Darts

“Type U” Darts are our most versatile and universal tail design for Pneu-Dart and non Pneu-Dart Projectors. Type U tails have been created to support 1/2cc – 5cc darts in conjunction with projectors not manufactured by Pneu-Dart.

Type U tails for 6cc – 10cc darts are our standard tail design for any projector. Many of our more seasoned customers may be familiar with these as ‘P’ Type Dart with Flight Stabilizer Tails. Rest assured they are one in the same; renamed in part as one of our latest steps in streamlining processes and meeting the needs of our customers.

Type P Dart

Poly Dart Bodies (.5 cc to 1.5 cc)
Pneu-Dart has fortified its plastic dart body by transitioning over to clear polycarbonate resin. Equipped with a color-coded polypropylene Type ‘C’ or Type ‘P’ tail, the new PolyCarb dart is ballistically equal and structurally superior. (Poly darts are only available in .5 cc – 1.5 cc darts.)

Aluminum Dart Bodies (2 cc – 10 cc)
Made out of aluminum tubing, our darts are designed to ensure optimum performance under any condition.

How They Work
Type ‘C’ and ‘P’ darts contain a small explosive charge which detonates on impact and quickly injects the drug. Darts equal to or less than 1 cc do not require retention (wire barb or gelatin collar) due to the rate of injection. As a consequence of the dart mechanics, the dart will “flash” when activated, a real asset in low-light conditions.

Cannula Lengths
Darts are available with 14-gauge cannula in lengths of 3/8″, 1/2″, 3/4″, 1″, 1 1/4″, 1 1/2″ and 2″.

Darts 1.5 cc through 10 cc are equipped with a gelatin collar but can be ordered with a wire barb. 3/8″ cannula are available in plain only. 1/2″ cannula are available in gelatin collars only. We do not recommend wire barbs or gelatin collars on 1/2 cc or 1 cc darts; however, they are available at an additional cost. Gelatin collars comprise of an inert material retaining the dart in place until the injection is made, and after several minutes will liquefy, allowing the dart to fall freely from the animal.

The chart listed below is a general guide for cannula lengths when administering intramuscular injections. Thirteen gauge cannula in specific lengths are also available. When ordering, please specify type of dart and cannula length. Not sure what will work best for you? Email us at This email address is being protected from spambots.

Red and Green CollarsGREEN and RED Gelatin Collars
Designed to assist in easy identification we have elected to use two colors for our Gelatin Collars. The traditional Green color is now used on all end-port discharge cannulas. The Red Gelatin Collars are now assigned to our Tri-Port (end and side port) discharge cannulas. Although different in color our gelatin collars function equally as reliable as they have in the past.
