Default any Black Diamond shooters...need help.

If anyone still shoots a Black Diamond here is the issue. I've had this for 12 years and I just took it out of the box. I started reading and it seems to be very dirty with the Flamethrower system. Some go to a single port #11 cap and has half the blow back and stays much cleaner.

What I can't find is what size nipple do I need? I found one but its a lot shorter than the Flamethrower. Not sure if that will cause harm. I just need something to go on because I'm totally green to the muzzle loader world.

IIRC both the regular nipple, Hot Shot nipple and Flame Thrower nipple are 1/4x28 threads.

The only real difference is the hot shot is longer and it has 3 "flash holes" The regular nipples have one.

Here is a list of several nipples and a replacement plug.

So both of these single pots would work? All the others are 3 port. I was not sure by being shorter if it would cause damage to the barrel some how? Thanks for the reply by the way.

Do I have to also change the breach plug I change to a single port nipple?

No need to change the breechplug. Go with a #11 nipple.

My old ThunderHawk used the same FlameThrower or regular nipple. The plug was non removable.

Both nipples interchanged just fine but the FlameThrower was a dirty beast.

I would get the musket cap and the #11 nipples just so you have all the bases covered.

Thanks for the help guys. I will get both of nipples. Besides 1/4 28 nipple is there anything important I should know? Any brand to get or avoid?
