I defer to Hari's deeper understanding of all things Falcon,
but I have not seen an FA style nib with the cut-out wings
& commensurate increased flex on any of the Falcon named Pens, but I have not done exhaustive searches through every model Pilot has. My understanding is that the FA nib only comes as an option with the 742 & 743 pens. Again, I may be wrong.
Nobody has made it clear whether or not modifications need to be made in order for the FA to be fitted to the Pilot Custom 823? Is it simply a matter of screwing it on? Does it attach as-is without the need for any modifications?
I have not seen anyone putting the FA on a custom 823 it outside of that link I posted. I have not seen how the 823 nib/feed is removed and how it would match up to the FA nib taken from a 743. It appeared that the back of the section was glued to the clear plastic body. I'm not interested in sacrificing my 823 to find out how to do a replacement mod, since this FA nib installed in the 823 is just perfect the way it is. The videos posted of people like Watch Art taking out the feed/FA nib from the 743 appears to just be a friction fit. That would likely have to be the same with the 823 if there is cross compatibility.Reading that Japanese translated website
just above where they show the images of the Forukan and Waverly nibs, they seem to be saying that the size #15 is a match between 743 & 823. They also seem to be saying that this custom installation is done for them by Pilot. I may be reading too much into the translation.
Waverley and Forukan is a kind pen that is the original lineup to 743 custom series. Both species, very good compatibility to write Japanese, is a pen to write very supple and comfortable. Also personally use regularly came every day with a custom 743, love is our pen. I was thinking always taste even when the pen tip 823 of the custom writing this wonderful taste, and wondered how good. Also 823 custom 743, issue number 15 of the pen tip is the same issue, the physical compatibility of the pen tip, there was.
However, individuals that we sell replacement at the store, it becomes covered by manufacturer's warranty at that point. In this, could not be that much trouble to our customers of your choice, after we put away for the inconvenience. Therefore, the manufacturer continued to appeal to this passion, whether or not I get a genuine production as somehow special specifications, we have continued to negotiate.
As a result, the time is took, I was able to get the nomination in early summer of 2009. When certified, at the same time as the verification of the prototype of over a long period of time within the manufacturer, upon examination, has led to sufficiently obtain permission from the attitude of our after-sales follow-on product sales and product Namiki pilot. Because of circumstances, there is not a replacement to stock after stock, of course, are produced by manufacturers as this specification is exactly the same way as normal product regular manufacturer's warranty.

With the new FPN rules, now I REALLY don't know what to put in my signature.
