I don't have a source but I have seen darting guns intended for taking small tissue samples from whales. They fired the dart from a .50 cal. rifled muzzle loader barrel and as I recall had a .22 rimfire barrel on top which fired either .22 blanks or more likely Hilti (nailgun) blanks which bled pressure down into the large barrel to push out the dart. There was a vertical hole between the top and bottom barrels and pressure was adjustable with a needle valve type adjustment as i recall. Also there are 3 grades of Hilti shells and I suspect the weakest would be the ones that you would use.
Possibly you can get one drawn up and made near where you are.
