Smoke & Fire

« on: October 17, 2012, 06:50:18 pm »

Received two sets of the shorter Slix-Shot nipples for Uberti revolvers & had a chance to use them in a monthly match this past weekend. Match was six stages using a .36 cal Navy Arms Frontiersman loaded with 22 grains of fffg Grafs powder, .380 Log Cabin Sport Shop cast roundball and #10 Remington caps. The caps were installed and seated using a Ted Cash revolver (snail) capper only, no push stick. At the end of the match, exploded caps had all stayed on the nipples. There were no missfires, no cap jams, no hot cap fragments caught between palm and grips (that really hurts).

These nipples work!!!
Now all I need to do is install some reduced power mainsprings and I'll be unbeatable (yeah right  Shocked ).

Too bad you're not a lefty like me where those flaming caps just roll off my knuckle onto the ground. The only time it is a bother is when I am put into a "black powder" or Frontier Cartridge category and I decide to shoot with two hands and they land between my cocking hand and my thumb. I've had a couple stick to me and sizzle a bit. That DOES take some of the fun away but is entertaining to the onlookers. Sometimes I think the Frontiersman category was created for "comic relief". Glad you solved another problem with the new nips.
