For your consideration I have this piston filler fountain pen in ‘chrome’ and blue plastic with a steel clip. Fitted with a steel nib that I consider to be a Fine point. Made in Germany in the 1980/90s. New Old Stock with some light signs of storage wear. *** the free shipping is for economy mail without tracking ***

3/22/16: This is an odd looking pen. The barrel, which should be clear, is chrome, except for about a half inch window close to the section. The piston was a bit tight and difficult to turn, but it’s beginning to loosen up a bit. The nib, which is supposed to be F, is a very wet M. It’s also unorthodox, pinched at the tip. I pulled the nib/feed from the section and swapped in a Nemosine #5 F. The nib/feed was difficult to remove. I use a small square of rubber shelf liner for grip. Gently rocking it back and forth while pulling gradually got it out. Putting it back was difficult. I had to find the exact groove it was in by feel, and when I did find it, I inserted the feed first, loosely, then inserted the nib. It all slid in without too much pressure. Initial tests with the replacement nib were satisfactory. Still a bit too wet for my taste, but a lot better than the original nib. I’ll be testing this pen over the coming days.
