I know this was posted many months ago but I ran into a similar problem. I pulled the piston rod and the piston got stuck inside. It was squished in there at an angle. I freaked out initially but then I was able to push it out gently with the blunt end of a toothpick, through the small ink opening where the feed goes.
Great advice! I got mine stuck my turn the end cap the opposite direction.
I followed your instructions and unscrewed the nib assembly and stuck a paper clip through the feed hole. I pushed it and the piston slid out. Then I greased the piston with the silicone grease provided and reassembled it! Thanks for the advice and I hope anyone that runs into the same trouble gets out of it! <3
