    Gauntlet dart spacing

    Does anyone know the spacing between the gauntlet darts? I'm getting ready to install my RusRep darts, and I want to make sure that they're spaced correctly.

    Thanks, guys!

    Beuller? Beullller?

    C'mon, someone has installed RussRep darts before, right?

    OK. You're forcing me to pull out my calipers!

    It's hard to tell exactly the real spacing. In some pics they look really close together, and other pics farther apart. The exhibit pics have them pretty close to each other.

    Maybe this will help.

    I compared a C4 Photo with Alanīs templates.

    This is the result:

    Forgot your second question:
    The space between the buttons seems to be 1inch.

    That's cool. As a result of my gauntlets not being exactly the same size as the originals, my spacing ended up being .325" between darts, whereas in your pic the spacing is .250". Still, it's pretty close.

    An inch between the buttons? That works... Do you know how far back from the front of the box the first button is? I've tried using the dimensions on Alan's CAD drawings, but I didn't know if the button spacing is correct? I'm assuming it is.

    Many thanks!

    All of this information should be archived right up there along with the "right" paint colors!
