Here's what appears to be a standard striker [bolt] for the Black Diamond that's for sale on eBay and Numrich in used condition.
The last photo was said to be a standard breech plug with a #11 nipple that appeared in this thread:--->>>

I don't know if the design was ever changed or not during its years of production.
But according to the "text only" of one online owner's manual, it indicated that Black diamond came from the factory with a #11 nipple.

You can find more info. and photos by Googling Thompson Center Black diamond and clicking on images, searching eBay, Numrich Arms etc...

There was a conversion kit to allow the Black Diamond to use 209 primers.
However I don't know if different model Black Diamonds eventually came from the factory ready to fire 209's or not.
There were different models of Black Diamonds.

Here's the conversion kit that allows the Black Diamond to shoot 209's:--->>>

This is what the 209 primer adapter looked like for the Black Diamond:--->>>

Here's some additional photos of a Black Diamond action with a nipple, possibly a musket nipple?
There are musket nipples that have the same threads as #11 nipples, I really don't know what you have:--->>>
