Best price/best source for treso/ampco nipples for '51 Uberti Navy?

With the problems I encountered with the Uberti '51 Navy I have this last Sunday when I was shooting, I'd like to switch out the stock nipples with some tress/ampco nipples. I checked on Track of the Wolf - they show a 12-28 nipple for the Uberti '51 but only show it in hardened steel and stainless.

Can anybody supply info on the best price/best source for the tress/ampco nipples for this revolver or a link? I'd like to get a set for CCI #10 caps since that is what I have and seem to run across most of the time. Many thanks.

Treso nipples are often out of stock. They're made by House of Muskets:

You might also try Jedediah Starr:

However, nipples are not made to fit caps; it's the other way around. CCI#10 caps do not fit any Treso nipples.

By the way....

mykeal is correct. Treso's take a #11 cap.

Thanks on the info. I can live with the #11. The current nipples with #10s just clear the recoil shield . . . but I'm sure the 11s would as well. I'm tied up the next couple of days but as soon as i can, I'll pull a nipple and double check the thread size. I'll be in touch Birch . . . .

Thanks much!

I use the Slix with #10 Remingtons and a push stick.

Works.

Same formula with TRESOs.

Youo'll have trouble finding nipples that fit CCI #10s.

Do the Treso's use RWS 1075's without pinching/crimping?
Thanks,
