    In the relatively short time I have been registered here and reading all that interests me about black powder revolvers and related has led me to understand that the Butler Creek/ Uncle Mike's brand produced a respectable line of replacement nipples for the percussion cap firearms.
    I think that I may have found a supply of these nipples, and while I wait for a response from the supply house about stock levels I thought that I ought to inquire here about what anyone knows of these (no longer produced?) stainless steel replacement nipples.
    I look to outfit a couple of ROAs & an ASM with the hex headed version, and if the supply will provide enough, a half dozen or so late model Pietta revolvers with them.
    The description tells me that the nipples use #11 caps.
    Can anybody tell of thier first hand experience with this brand of nipple?

    On Ebay I purchased some replacement SS Uncle Mike's nipples for my ROA that was having problems. I'm use to using Rem. #10's my other ROA's but this one was having problems with misfires. Although I only have a few miles on these nipples, they are working fine and I don't foresee any problems.
