    Enfield two band

    I was given one of these last year, made by G Jeffries in Norwich.

    It came without a nipple and I can't find anyone who has one in stock.

    I've tried the obvious, Kranks etc.

    It will probably only ever be a wall hanger, but I'd like it to be complete and authentic.

    Any help gratefully received.

    I used to use a 2 Band Enfield with 1oz of shot on top of 2&3/4 drams of good black powder, wadded up with an Eley Kleena 20g wad. It shot better with shot than it did with ball. Any replacement nipples came from Blackley's, they are larger than the standard nipple as they take the large military top hat percussion cap which I used to buy from Kranks.
