G&G nipples
« on: February 19, 2012, 08:06:35 PM »
      Hi guys.New member here,needing info already.Getting back into cap & ball after a long spell.Brought out my old Navy Arms,Ubertti .44 and only have 3 nipples in it!We had a local gun show this weekend and thought i might find some to fit.The only vendor with any blackpowder supplies had only rifle nipples.The ones in my pistol are 6X.75 m/m.x.540.I looked at The Possibles Shop and Track Of The Wolf,but didn't see any that would match.I want to order the right ones (the first time).lol.Need a few other shooting items as well so I can get most everthing at once.
Should mention that its a Griswold & Gunnderson(model). Thanks   strayBB   :9)

bb, the Griswold & Gunnison is nothing more than a Colt with a round barrel. Any Uberti-compatible nipples should fit. I might suggest Dixie Gun Works.

You probably need to measure your thread pitch to decide which one you need.
Hope this helps.
