Did not like how wide the grip on their crimpers open ( wider than even my hands that are not small can hold open)

The MSD one will not work on old British "bullet" connectors

I know what you mean by how wide the crimpers open, but when the bullet is loaded the handle is just over 4.5" wide before squeezing tight,

I got the one from autosparks in the uk. It ratchets so you load a bullet, close the jaws and it holds the bullet so you can thread the wire then crimp.

Hi Bill. I think britishwiring gets theirs from autosparks, just the handles are different colours

For bullets, I use the soldered ones which is what I have stock in my defender.

I think I bought mine from autosparks but I would have to check. http://www.autosparks.co.uk/index.php?cPath=129

They fit well and clip in firmly like thy should.
