CAPS NOT GOING BANG EVERYTIME???
Need some imput from you ROA BP shooters. I have a ROA & the way they desined the fall of the hammer not to come in contact with the nipples, there isn`t enough force to fire the caps sometimes & have to cycle around & hit them again. Am I the only one with this problem, or should I be using a differant cap. By the way I have been using Remington #10`s. I don`t have this problem with my other BP 44 revolvers. Thanks in advance.
The nipple is too big for the cap you are using, and it's not seating fully. The first hammer strike is seating the cap, and the second is setting it off. Buy bigger caps or smaller nipples. If you've got an electric drill, you can put the cap in it and use sandpaper to take it down a little. Sometimes just switching brands of cap is enough to fix the problem.
It's been a few years since I've bought caps, but last time I checked, Remingtons were a little bigger than CCI caps, so you might try switching to CCI #11 caps and see if that solves the problem.
The gun has probably been dry fired and the nipples have been peened. Remington caps are the preferred brand in competitive environments with C&B pistols.
A set a Treso nipples is in your future and will be necessary for overcoming the problem you describe. Most shooters end up switching out the nipples on C&B guns to Treso as soon as possible –– even the ROA.
In the mean time while waiting on new nipples / caps, get a wooden dowel ( or an antler tip ) and gently seat the caps further onto the nipples.
