Target Darts Problem
So I have been using Targets Distinction Orion however a point snapped and left some of it in the barrel  however I did manage to put another point back in but it is slightly longer than the other two points because of the broken point so would it be a big problem/big difference if one point is slightly longer.  Another issue is target have stopped selling Distinctions so should I just switch and maybe get some Ade Lewis Pixels ??

I would get in touch with Custom Made Darts, for example. They can most likely drill out the broken point: https://custommadedarts.com/collections/...darts-aspx. The Orion are still widely sold in the Netherlands as well (assuming I've got the right model in front of me), so if you don't mind paying up, getting one shipped from here is also a possibility.

Target repoint darts for free, you need proof of purchase and you have to send them all three barrels, they repaired my Daytona’s after one of my points snapped off inside the barrel.

You can also do the Alum in a beaker of hot water trick and let the alum eat the remaining point out of the barrel.   I had a Target Daytona dart point break off and it was broken flush with the face of the barrel.      I put alum in a 2 cup pyrex dish and placed that in a pot with water and set it on the stove to heat up.    You want the water hot, but not boiling, just a hot simmer.

It did take a while for the remaining point to finally be eaten away, but it does work and was way quicker than sending the darts back to Target across the big pond and wait for them to do the work and ship them back.

Others have also used regular vinegar to eat out broken points, but it takes considerably longer.

ETA: You could also just grind the point down to match the lengths of the two other darts you have. You can use a file, sander, grinding wheel, etc. to remove some of the length and reshape the point.
