I know its not a fountain pen but I've seen a picture somewhere of a Sheaffer FP which looks very similar so I assume it was part of a range including a FP.

 

I think this is a roller ball but as the refill bit is missing I can't work out which refill I need. I've tried a standard Sheaffer roller ball and the slim one plus a ballpoint (K refill) one but they are usually too long or the ball bit doesn't fit through the section.

 

I don't want to throw it away but I need to identify which refill I need.

IIRC that was for the "Glidewriter", a fiber tip refill.

I have a funny feeling that fibre tip refills are no longer available. Is that correct?

I'd first contact Pendemonium and ask if they have a tip that might fit.  The system used standard Sheaffer cartridges so that part is covered.

I remembered where I'd seen what looks like a FP version of the same pen. http://www.ebay.co.u...=STRK:MEBIDX:IT

This is advertised as a Sheaffer Imperial FP. Was thee a roller ball/ball point/fibre tip version of this?

There were ball point and pencil versions but no roller ball IIRC. And the ball points was a conventional retract the tip design.

I think this is the rollerball version of the 444 ..... We saw a few mixed in with the 444 and 440 fountain pens.

Barrel and cap look identical to my NOS 444.

You may be able to convert this to a FP with the proper section.  Teri may have something in stock that works.  Likely, the piston convertor will not fit but the squeeze style should.

Looks like we're narrowing it down!

I'd be happy to use it as a roller ball but I can't find the correct refill.  I've tried a standard Sheaffer roller ball and the slim one plus a ballpoint (K refill) one but they are usually too long or the ball bit doesn't fit through the section. Any idea which refill I should use?
