I recently got a Paterson repro (pretty sure it's Uberti) dated 1971.  It's missing a few nipples (4 slotted type).  I ordered some from Taylors but the thread size is slightly too large.  Does anyone know a source of old Uberti nipples?  I've looked everywhere.
Thanks.

Ah, would be wiling to bet your Patterson is a Pietta.

I had a Pietta years ago but it wasn't this old.  This one is marked "Made in Italy" but that's all (plus Italian proof marks).  What makes me think it's an Uberti are the nipples with the four slots.  Did Pietta make those types of nipples?

Now I'm wondering...looking at the four slotted nipples, it looks like they might have been altered to fit.  Maybe someone fit Uberti nipples in a Pietta.  Anyone know the thread diameter of a Pietta Paterson nipple?

Check the offerings from Track of the Wolf www.trackofthewolf.com  They probably have the correct nipples in stock, and list the thread size.

I measured the cylinder threads (M5-08 or 10/32") and called Track of the Wolf but they said that size nipple would be very hard to find.
They suggested drilling and tapping to a more common size.

I am pretty certain your Paterson was made by MOFRA, Italy.
Their logo are the two diamonds.
They became eventually a member of the PIETTA group.
Possibly, Pietta nipples will work

There is a very small MOFRA stamped on the bottom of the barrel.  From what I was told, the Pietta nipples will also fit an 1860 .44, which I have, so I was able to test one, and they're definitely too big.
I'll try Dixie Gunworks today and see if they have any.
If I had a lathe, and the skills and knowledge to use it, I'd be all set.
