Nipple Wrench

Will the Cabelas Musket Nipple Wrench fit the Shiloh Sharps 1863?

Thanks,

Hello Frank

You can probably call Cabela's, or Shiloh and they will be able to help you.

Here's how I got the stubborn nipple out of my original 1863: I slipped a 5mm 1/4" drive socket over the nipple, square drive hole first. then I inserted a 3/8" drive 5mm allen socket into the 5mm 1/4" drive socket, and got er loose with a 3/8" drive wrench. Worked like a champ.

Track of the Wolf has a decent wrench, may have to be trimmed a little to fit the nipple. They have nipples also.
Happy Shooting!!! :D
