Earth Rat Larry - 07/23/2021

i installed them on a 1851 Pieta Pepper Box & a 1858 Uberti New Army Rimington , i wonder if they will ignite the powder as well as the originals having a larger hole to ignite the powder ) ? Haven't tryed them out yet ,need a FPS meter to tell 4 sure !!!

Great Product!

I've read numerous forums on how the factory nipples for Pietta black powder revolvers create an effect called "cap suction". I went to YouTube and watched vidoes by Duelist54 and he showed how upgrading to your nipples can rectify this issue.

Great product

Ladnar - 07/18/2021

I have an uberti 1851 navy that kept getting cap jams. Got the slixshot nipples, and completely fixed it. Highly recommend these nipples as a first step to improving your cap n ball revolver.

High Quality

Very well made works GREAT!

Superb product.

Andrew - 07/15/2021

I have had these for a little over a month, didn't want to write the review until I'd tried both sets (one each for Uberti and Pietta) out.
I can say these are fantastic products and I'll surely be ordering more.

I can't complain about your product, even being almost 36 bucks each set, (July 2021) they're well worth while.

Slick shot nipples

Will Ryan - 07/10/2021

Slick shot nipples are as good and dependable as the hot shots I used to use.

Revolver nipples

Mike Suri - 07/09/2021

The hardest and strongest nipples I have ever used. Highly recommended !

Significant increase in reliability

Joshua G. - 07/07/2021

I was experiencing constant misfires in 2 chambers of my Ruger Old Army cylinder, the cap would go off, but the powder charge would not ignite. I did some research, and found positive results from other shooters switching to SlixSprings. I swapped them out, then fired 6 consecutive cylinders (36 shots) without a problem. Definitely increased reliability, highly recommended.
