I just picked up a Franklin Covey fountain pen for $20 at staples. It writes well and smooth and I'm overall very happy with it. However I would like to put a fine or extra fine nib on it. I have found a bunch of sites offering replacement nibs, but I don't know if it uses a #5, #6, mini, etc.

I really would like to keep using this one mainly for the body. It has the perfect weight and girth for my hand and I overall prefer the feel of it compared to my others. This is why I'm just trying to replace the nib for a finer line.

Any info and help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks for posting the picture. Mine does not look like that.. But the nib looks like a #5.. Smaller than the twsbi / edison nibs which are #6..

Thanks!  I think ill order a cheapo #5 just to see if it fits and feeds correctly and then go from there.

UPDATE

I ordered some #5.5 chrome extra fine nibs from Fountainpenrevolution.com, and they will fit and work quite well.  I payed $10 (after shipping) for a pack of 3 but was also given a fourth two-tone iridium tipped nib as well.  The site says shipping would take 20 days but i recieved them in 8.  Highly recommend if looking for a low cost replacement nib for this low cost pen. Which in my opinion, originally had a broad posing as a medium nib.
