I received my 2pc today from Midwayusa and shot a few hundred darts . I love it! The quality is there. The two piece connector has fine threads and it is dead on straight. I bought an extra 250 darts .They were on sale.($8/50pc) Out of all the cones only one was slightly out of round but still shot well after fixing it.It appears Cold steel finally fixed the deformed cone issue. This thing shoots great with the spear head darts. I was hitting a dinner plate from 75 ft.Really buried the dart in my archery foam block.Shot a tin can from 10 ft and the dart passed right through leaving the cone behind. Shooting this today renewed my blowgun passion again. I'm pleased and would recommend the 2pc model.
