Best of luck to you, hope the titanium nibs do well for you.

 

Enjoy, and Welcome to FPN! :W2FPN:

From a person's actions, we may infer attitudes, beliefs, --- and values. We do not know these characteristics outright. The human dichotomies of trust and distrust, honor and duplicity, love and hate --- all depend on internal states we cannot directly experience. Isn't this what adds zest to our life?

Are you having the Ranga 4c made to accept Bock threaded units, or are you just installing the nib in an eyedropper model w original feed? We've swapped the nib out of JoWo assemblies and installed Sheaffer Balance 2 nibs, but we've found that only certain nibs are the right thickness for the threaded units.

I will use a ranga 4c eyedropper, I has one Gama supreme with bock 250 steel nib  and works fine, all you need is a little of boiled water...

They are softish with a feeling like softer 14k and 18k nibs yet in a way many on FPN have had difficulty describing.  The feel IS different than gold yet quite pleasing.  I have one from Stipula and one from Delta, and I enjoy them both very much even though I have more than enough gold nibs to satisfy me.

I hope you'll like the nib when it arrives.  I bought the same one and installed it a few days ago in a Gama Hawk.  The matte grey metal looks much better with the brushed ebonite pen than did the gold-washed steel of the nib that came in the pen.  As you can see in a clip of the photo that you posted, it doesn't have a big ball of tipping like most modern nibs:

In that respect, it's more like a vintage nib.  It also seems to have been finished with a great deal of care -- the tipping is clean, symmetrical and very smooth, both in the normal orientation and inverted.  No baby's bottom, sharp spots or other problems.

 

The nib proper has good, even ink flow after opening the tines slightly -- they were pinched a little too tightly as delivered.  And it is moderately flexible, although I haven't used it long enough to try to qualify how the flex might be different from that of a gold nib.

 

Incidentally, I didn't use the whole 250 point unit, I just pulled the nib and put it into the pen's section.  The Bock feed was too small in diameter; I used a Sheaffer NoNonsense feed, which works very well after heat-setting it to the nib.

And it is moderately flexible...

 

 

After some use, I'll amend that to "springy".  It goes from fine to perhaps medium without undue pressure.
