Just got a burgundy set that seems in pretty good shape, some pretty heavy wear on the FP clip and both cap rings (which are loose and turn). Of course the FP barrel end is crystallized and gone. A bit of a nick to the top of the MP also. Even if the set is a bit rough, my-oh-my what a nib! Straight and true and nice flex.

Who does barrel end replacements on these and how much risk is involved? [I've read several posts where the barrel of the pen sometimes cracks when the end is turned.]

You could try Sean...SMG ...as he does great retro fits of this type. I saw one of these refurbished by him at our last pen meeting

Ron Zorn (Main Street Pens) just did a barrel end replacement for my 100 Year Deluxe, and it looks gorgeous!
