Hey guys, I need help with identifying this Sailor pen that I found stored somewhere at home. It says 'Sailor Since 1911' on the cap band and 'TIGP Sailor' engraved on the nib with an M on the wings. Thank you in advance!  :)

TiGP nibs are found on the cheaper models not sure why... I think it's better to say they are steel TiGP nibs but if Sailor did make Titanium nibs during the war then...

the nib found on the sailor profit young/somiko
my mistake about the reglus despite it bearing the same nib profile but it has different markings
