Hello FP Masterminds,


I recently purchased a Montblanc 242 that is in overall good shape.  However a few hours after inking I started to write and noticed my hands were covered in ink.  It appears to be leaking from the piston knob. I got a partial refund and now I'm looking into the best way to have the pen repaired.


It is quite old so I'm not sure if Montblanc will take it for repairs.  I was wondering if there was an easy repair someone inexperienced like me could do or if there was someone in the US who could repair it for a fair price.  The pen only ended up costing $100 so obviously I don't want to spend more than that to repair it.
