I put a short piece of clear plastic tubing on the nipples to start them. I have found it's not unusual to have a few sharp edges on threaded holes on the Italian pistols making them difficult to start the fastener or in this case nipple. A quality tap and die set is very nice to have, along with a thread pitch tool. I well use a hand held drill bit just larger than the fastener hole to de-burr it.
