Hello,
Bought a never fired stainless ROA (1978). Gun came with a nipple wrench marked Part # CB-73 on paper envelope. The wrench won't fit over nipples as it is too big. Removed nipples with a 3/16 socket.Plan to swap out nipples with an aftermarket one. New ones are not hex head. Need the right nipple wrench. Anyone ever have this problem? Thanks Tom

The only one I have used was a #11.

Do the new nipples you are buying state a size. I saw Midway also has what is called a universal nipple wrench. Not sure how that works., seems it either slots on it or doesn't.

I figured if my wife won't let me use my fingernails, then she'll never let me use a ...
Am I in the wrong Forum?
