This was the first BP revolver I bought, and somehow I messed up the threads on the cylinder so the nipple won't start again. I removed the nipple to clean the gun, and when I went to put it back, it wouldn't start again. Tried new nipples and nothing works. Does anyone know where I can find a tap so I fix this the ?  I'll really appreciate any help.

          Thanks Sad

Should be a M6.75 metric thread. May do an ebay search for that tap and see what you come up with.

I'm not sure if this is the correct one you need but it's close:

I just ordered one of these, at the price, if it doesn't work I'll have to try something else. Thank you patocazador and Frontier gander

I just got the taps you folks had me try and they worked great. My cylinder is now a six holer again, and I want you to know how much I appreciate the help. Frontier gander and patocaador, thank you so very much.

Hey guys, I found out the nipple I ordered takes a #11 cap instead of the #10 cap like the rest. How do I know which is which so I can get the right one for the cylinder?

They usually state what size cap they're made for. If they don't, it's probably for a #11. It's a much more common size.

It seems that there is no standardization among percussion cap distributors. Remington #10s fit Ruger Old Army nipples very well but not nipples designed differently. Same with the #11 caps. RWS, Remington, and Winchester/CCI don't interchange (CCI interchange with Winchester because they are supposedly both made by CCI.)

The best fit I got on my 1860 Colts were Treso nipples, and #10 Remington caps.
