HELP, CVA Bobcat Stripped Nipple Empty
PostSubject: HELP, CVA Bobcat Stripped Nipple   HELP, CVA Bobcat Stripped Nipple EmptySeptember 24th 2010, 6:02 pm

I recently purchased a CVA Bobcat from a pawn shop for $40. The barrel is bright and shiny, nice bluing, nice lock & trigger, nice stock, etc. It did not have a nipple. I figured that would not be a problem since I had some at home. The only problem is the nipple had been stripped out. When I tried to put a new CVA nipple in it, it would not tighten. There were threads in the drum/bolster, but they look as if they may have been stripped. If I retap the drum/bolster, should I use a .25 x 28 tap so I can use a TC nipple, or use another oversized nipple such as .255 x 28 or .260 x 28, etc. I plan on putting in a spitfire nipple.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.

.25x28 should work fine. You can also do a Heli-coil repair, thats pretty common with muzzle loaders that had the hole stripped out.

THANKS! I knew I could get some help/advice here. I will order the spitfire nipple from Cain's Outdoor. They have some really good prices.
