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

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.
