Years ago I bought the wrong nipples for my Pietta 1860 Army because I had just bought it used and I did not realize that I had gotton the wrong one. They actually are:
Uncle Mike's
Set 2866-0
Ruger Hex Head
"Ruger Old Army Type revolver 12-28 thread. Takes No, 11 caps
The only problem was that I opened the bag and left them in a junk drawer and can oly find 5 of them. They are like new. No rust. So if anyone is interested in them PM me and I will send them to you. I hate throwing things away and don't know anyone here with this gun. If more that one person wants them I tall give to the first one.

That's funny. I have five Uncle Mike's ROA nipples in a bag too, and the 6th nipple is missing! :D
There was an ROA recently advertised for sale that way too, having only 5 nipples installed and with the 6th missing. I figured that it must have belonged to a cowboy action shooter. :rolleyes:

It must be of some cosmic significance

Right, same number of nipples as on each hand. Shooting it that way uses 16% less powder and ball per cylinder fired. Just think of all the savings! :D

Wow. You think I can become rich overnight if I write a book on how to convert your black powder revolver into a single shot pistol? Talk about saving lead and powder.:D
