Quote from: Øyvind F. on 12. August 2021 kl. 9:37:46The drawing is for the Norwegian models and I doubt the Norwegian nipples are interchangeable with the Swedish. Have you checked with http://sixgun.se?You can buy a replica nipple for the Norwegian kammerlader here, made to fit modern musket caps: https://svartkrutt.net/shop/no/kammerladertilbehor/162-kammerladerpistong.html (English version: https://svartkrutt.net/shop/en/kammerlader-accessories/162-kammerladersikte.html)I can't remember writing anything about copper washers. It was certainly not used in originals.

Quote from: Torgeir on 13. August 2021 kl. 7:18:02The length of the nipple is related to the geometry of the hammer. With this nipple-length the hammer on my gun hits the nipple at an approximate 90 degrees angle. Now you're going to find out if a 12 mm nipple works just as well.
