Just a ordinary black powder revolver nippple wrench will work. I use this one on mine and my other black powder revolvers. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ted-Cash-Rat...IAAOxyQQRR7nan

The Ted Cash company makes some good quality black powder supplies.

Just don't get one of those cheap nine dollar wrenches. They're ok if the nipples aren't tight but if you try to use it on tight ones they'll twist.

Looking on the track of the wolf web sight, it looks like I need the nw130 or nw140? There aint much room so I guess I will go with the 130? I have been out of bp shooting for quite a few years, still have some powder and caps. I am amazed at how much it has changed here in MS. Hardley any traditional bp stuff available. I shoot a 50 cal tc hawkin that I got when i was 13 and a 45 kit pistol that i made 40 years ago. Thanks for the info.

Not much bp stuff available at all around here (Laurel). Not even inline stuff since the hunting laws changed.

turkey buzzard, I have this wrench in the walker model and it is good quality, cheap wrenches will strip like nobodys business. The ones from track look simular, I don't know if it is the same.

The best wrench is the little ratcheting wrench. Can't remember the maker but it has pretty good torque.
