Uberti Paterson Loading tool & Nipple Wrench
« on: September 16, 2011, 02:03:24 PM »
Taylor's has some of the Uberti loading tool/nipple wrenches - ya know, the four pointed nipple wrench ones.  $49 and some change.  From what I've found, no one else has any and UBERTI ISN'T MAKING ANY MORE.  Sorry for the yelling; but i though it was appropriate

Looked but didn't see any.

They're not listed.  You have to call and ask about them.

Comparison of Paterson Nipple Wrenches/Loading tools
« Reply #4 on: September 19, 2011, 01:09:12 PM »
Received the Uberti loading tool/nipple wrench from Taylor's today.  Thought I'd post a few comparison photos of the new Uberti tool and a tool that came with my Navy Arms/Pietta Paterson from 1983.

Here is first photo showing the two side by side.  Uberti on the left. The uberti is slightly larger and heavier than the Navy Arms one.


Anothe picture of them side by side.  Uberti on the bottom:


Here is a picture of them with the cap off.  You can see that the Uberti on the left is beefier than the Navy Arms tool on the right.


Here's the money shot.  Again, Uberti on the left.  The cap threads were smooth and even on the Uberti tool.  The Navy Arms was a chore to unscrew because of very rough cut threads.


Taylors still had a few of these on hand when I ordered mine last week.  When they're gone, they're gone & according to Uberti - there won't be any more.
