The nipples should be a 12-28 thread, you can order them from Track of the Wolf. Double check the thread size with a pitch gauge. The diameter should be approximately .2160" They have blued and stainless, scroll to the bottom of the page.

Numrich has the mainspring, the following link is to the order page.
