Hello Fellow Muzzleloaders:
It has come to my attention
that there are Questions concerning the different nipples on Muzzle loading
It is possible to thread a 6mm by .75 thread nipple into a gun
that uses a ¼ by 28 thread nipple. Care must be taken when
cleaning more than one rifle so that parts do not get mixed up.
listed below are the most common nipples.
1st -- The American
standard nipple is a ¼ by 28 threads per inch. This fits
Most Thompson/Center Rifles along with Pedersoli, Austin Halleck
and many Dixie Gun Works Rifles.
2nd -- The Rifles made in Italy for
Lyman, Cabelas, Navy Arms use a 6mm by .75 pitch fine thread nipple.
3rd -- The CVA (Connecticut Valley Arms), Traditions use a 6mm by
1.0 pitch course thread nipple.
Keep your powder dry and safe
