Caps for Uberti 1862 Pocket Navy
« on: August 19, 2021, 11:44:15 AM »
Got a pocket navy with two lengths of barrels.   I was wondering what the best cap for these smaller pistols are?    I am thinking of getting slixshot nipples for it, so that may solve the question, but in the interim, was curious what others are using?

I've used Remington #10s and RWS 1075s in mine, both on the original cones and the slixshots in it now.

Thanks!   I have a load of REmington 11s.   They do not quite fit.   Will be on the lookout.   I noticed as I capped it some sizing differences in the nipples, so I think I will be ordering the slickshots soon.
