    I have several powder flasks. The problem flask is plain (no markings) and is missing the spout. The spouts I have will not work as they are a smaller diameter than the hole in the flask. I've tried numrich arms and several others. Any input as to where I can find a spout for this flask?
    Thanks!

    Try fitting various caliber shell casings with the head cut off. .223 or .30 might do. Solder in the one that serves best.

    Is it an original or a repro? If original, I would be reluctant to solder or do anything to diminish its value.

    That said, I haven't checked Numrich, but my Dixie Gun Works catalog has a large selection of flask spouts of various sizes.

    As "the Parson" says, check out DGW. In looking at my flask collection I can see at least 5 different spout sizes, depending on size and maker of the flask.

    Seem like you ought to start by taking it to a hardward store and try an assortment of bolts in it to find out what diameter and thread pattern you need.

    I think most of the spouts Dixie sells are made to fit the Italian reproduction flasks.

    I know I've got over 10 different Italian spouts and they all fit all of my Italian flasks.

    If Sinners existing spouts won't work on the flask in question, Dixies spouts probably won't either.

    I have two from the very early flasks. I can't
    quite make out the thread size...could be 27 per
    and measure .470...might be metric...

    Most of Dixie's flask spouts are threaded 10 x 1 metric.
