Traditions™ Revolver Nipple Wrench for 1851, 1858, and 1860 Models
Positively don't purchase (really).
I rarely comment on purchased items, but I feel compelled to inform others; in fact, I actually called Bass Pro shop. I'm not doing this because I'm mad, I'm leaving a comment and I contacted Bass Pro shop in order that the product be immediately removed. Really, it's that bad.
The problem is that the metal is WAY too soft. I removed 5 out of 6 nipples, but the 6th gave just a little resistance and the soft metal on the wrench rounded and that was that...done. I very carefully tried to work with the tool and remove the last one, but to no avail...it just got worse.
This item either needs to be removed from their product line or replaced with the proper metal immediately. There is no other option. DO NOT purchase this. I can't stress this enough. Not even maybe.

Revolver Nipple Wrench
I found this tool to work great! I had no problems with removing the nipples for cleanning and then putting them back on. Plus, the nipple pin in the cap is a GREAT help!

This wrench is fine
I have read other bad reviews for this nipple wrench and I think they are too critical.
This wrench fits fine. If you use it squarely with good pressure it does not slip. I think if things are frozen and rusted a better wrench or machine shop might be needed.
Yes it is not like an S.K. socket set, super heavy duty precision $400.oo on sale ...but I got my nipples on and off O.K.
The nipple pick is a nice handy bonus.

It might work for new nipples but for those stubborn ones it will not work. The metal is too soft and rounds the corners of the wrench.

While I have used my nipple wrenches to remove #10 nipples & replace them with #11 nipples, the only problem I've encountered is with slightly oversized wrenches, where you need to slightly turn down to reduce the diameter of the wrench body so it turns more freely within the cylinder recess.
