Top notch upgrade
EHawk - 07/16/2024
I have these installed on all my percussion revolvers (all Colt replicas). Ignition reliability is 100% (even with combustible paper cartridges) as long as I do my part to make sure the cap itself goes off. (With RWS 1075s, one must seat them quite firmly.) Cap jams are much reduced as well. The only drawback I can see to these is their shiny appearance. But after a long day of shooting, I just clean them with hot water and don’t polish them, and they are nicely dulled to look more like the originals.

Purchased a set of slix-shot cones for my Ruger old army.
I make my own percussion caps due to the "shortage" and was having trouble igniting triple seven powder in paper cartridges. These nipples were just what was needed. There is a noticeable difference just firing caps on empty chambers, a lot more fire is shot into the bore.
These new nipples are vented to help clear caps after firing but I cannot comment on their effectiveness as I have only used my thin home made caps.

Overall I am very impressed. Shipping was quick, machining is impeccable and the finish matches my cylinder perfectly. This has brought my pistols reliability up to 100% and made for a much more enjoyable shoot.

Nipples for .36 Navy
Mike Nesbitt - 06/25/2024
Slixprings was very helpful in getting the proper sized nipples for my Uberti .36. And while shooting with those new nipples, the fired caps under the hammer problem has disappeared. To say the least, I'm very pleased.

I am very pleased with these nipples.They have solved my cap jamming issues on my 1860 Army. I appreciate the help of Patrick getting the right nipples for my pistol.
A must have for C&B pistols
David P. - 06/22/2024
Slixprings nipples truly fit Remington #10 and CCI #11 caps. No more “pinching”, “blowoffs” or cap jams.
