    Parts source

    Does anyone know of a source for percussion revolver nipples on older replicas?

    No luck from most of the known suppliers. Evidently when manufacturing shifted to another company the nipples changed and no one seems to have the older ones. It's an 1849 Colt Pocket Pistol replica that takes 12-24 nipples and all the ones made now (Uberti) are 12-28.

    I ordered a set that size from TOW but had to send them back. Diameter is correct but the .9 pitch is finer than the original. 12-24 machine bolt screws in perfectly.

    Try Buffalo Arms.

    I got some hard to fine nipples from them about 5 years ago.
