Amazing improvement over factory nipples
Chris W. Chronis - 03/27/2023
My Uberti 1849 Pocket .31 was by far my most unreliable cap and ball revolver. Each cylinder had at least 2 failures to fire with the factory nipples - and when it did fire, cap jams were a near constant issue. Slixprings nipples have changed that completely - my Pocket .31 is now as reliable as my other Remington and Colt repros that have the Slix nipples installed. A 100% improvement in reliability.

These nipples fit my uberti pocket pistols perfectly. I haven't tried them yet but I have a set on my 1851 navy and they do a great job helping prevent cap jams. I couldn't be more pleased with them.
Good nipples
Dart Liebrandt - 03/01/2023
They fit my 1849 pocket pistol very well. I have these type nipples in my 1851 Navies and they work great.
Another great purchase

Always top notch. I'll be back, as usual.

The Slixshot nipples corrected the problem of caps blown back under the hammer.
very good product
Bill L - 01/31/2023
I have purchased three sets for my different revolvers. Better quality than those that came with the revolvers. They help with the "cap sucking" issue on the Colt repros. I also like that they are stainless steel which eliminates the worry about potential rusting after washing. The thing that really makes me happy about these nipples is that they accept Remington #10, CCI # 11 and RWS 1075 caps, because these days you have to settle for any percussion caps you can find. I've tried all of these caps and they fit snug.

They also fit 1862 Police and Navy; which make good trail guns. Carry one every day.
1849 Uberti 5 shot pocket pistol nipples
Ken Angst - 01/01/2023
Excellent product. The first step in curing the problem with fired percussion caps coming off and falling in the action on this pistol. I was able to fire 5 rounds without stopping to remove a fired cap from the action. After some research I still plan to install a stronger hammer/main spring.
Zero hammer jams
Jim Butler - 12/06/2022
That little hole in the nipple makes a big difference, no more caps falling off.
Great upgrade
Jack B - 11/23/2022
After installing the SlixShot nipples on my black powder pistols the reliability increased 100 percent. Caps don't fall into the action any more. Haven't had a cap fall off or foul. They really do work as advertised. Great product!
Best thing since sliced bread
Karson Branham - 11/12/2022
These nipples made my 1862 pocket navy work like a champ. No cap jams and no other issues, just consistent firing every time.
The Good, Bad and Ugly
Jim Manry - 10/24/2022
Uberti Pocket Police .36 cal purchased on sale from Midway. Beautiful revolver, but a POS mechanically. SliX did not improve performance. SliX purchased for ASM 51 Navy performed very well compared to OEM nips. I got the ASM in a trade. Made in 1995, never fired. Excellent, well built, accurate revolver; like my Pietta 58 Remington. Uberti SUX...ever since Beretta purchased them...
