Slixshot Black Powder Nipples
George - 05/23/2024
The solution to the percussion camp shortage. Slixshot BP Nipples are designed to enhance the performance of percussion caps whether using #10 or #11s. I found them to reduce ignition failures on my 1858 Remington New Army revolver by over 50%. I'll be replacing all of my original equipment with Slixshot nipples in the near future.
Great product

SliXshot Black Powder Nipples Review
Lou Orosco - 05/19/2024
I recently purchased a set of SliXshot Nipples for my Uberti Colt Walker & Dragoon and my Pietta 1860 Army revolvers.

I have only fired the Dragoon using these nipples and I have about 48 rounds through it. I encountered no problems with these nipples and am already considering buying another set of nipples so I do not have to rotate them between the Dragoon and the Colt Walker.

Only the expense will prohibit me from switching over to all my other Pietta black powder revolvers.

I was having some issues with the percussion caps on my Pietta 1851 Navy revolver. The Slixshot nipples solved my issues. They are a five star product!

Work better that the ones that came with the pistol, but still do have some hang-ups when fired. I believe that may be b/c the nipples are #11’s. Size #10’s would probably be better, but can not find them to purchase.

Reply from Slixprings:

The recommended caps to use with our nipples is clearly stated on the website product page in the Description box and on the product packaging the nipples are shipped in. We also have this listed on the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page. If using the recommended caps most of the “hang-ups” will not happen or at least be drastically reduced.

These black powder nipples are genius, after using them on my 1860 Pietta I now put them on all my black powder revolvers. When I buy a black powder revolver, I automatically buy the sliXshot nipples to replace the original ones.

So far, two cylinders and not one hangfire or misfire.
Nipples fit well

The nippples fit well on the Pietta 1858 Remington 44 cal.

I always had problems with factory nipples, especially caps coming off, these Slix nipples made a big difference. Glad I got them for my 1861 Army and 1858 Army revolvers
