I have an old stock Pedersoli Napoleon Le Page pistol in .44 caliber.
The Nipple needs to be replaced since it is to fat to accept #11 caps and the hole seems to be off center.
Can't find any information on the Pedersoli website about the nipple size.
Looks like it also needs a special nipple wrench?
Please help, match coming up...

you might be able to file the nipple to a smaller diameter if you want, it shouldn't be too hard to do.

The nipple could be the 6 X 0.75 but check with a vendor to be sure.
Dixie Gun Works sells the LePage pistol and should be able to supply the nipple and a nipple wrench that fits. Give them a call:
