Got a CA, but haven't done the conversion yet. Been eyeing one of those Shaeffer's . . .
You should get a Yink, I think.

|Can anyone tell me what other manufacturers use standard parker refills in their ballpoints?|
The same format refills are used in Bic (Select range), Inoxcrom, Rou Bill, Berendsohn, Senator, Diplomat, Prodir (as an option), Schneider (most Schneider ballpoints are contructed in a way that they can be used with Parker style refills, with Papermate style refills and with ISO 12757-2 H refills), Aurora, Conklin, Kaweco, Omas (some models), Faber Castell, Itoya (some models) Rotring and Stypen. Maybe there are more manufacturers that use these refills, but at least these offer pens with a Parker style refill. Parker refills can also be used in Ballograf pens.

Now that I've seen one, I want one. Thank you for posting the old ad.
How did you modify your pen to accept modern refills?

I almost forgot, I don't know how I could, I have a Dunhill Silver Torpedo, the first year pen when they were brought back by Dunhill. It is incredibly unique, with a removable cap that houses a quick release type of attachment system that came with scissors and a letter opener. Really more for show than use but probably the most unique pen I have ever seen. Its really not like the ones available today that have kind of a screw on attachment sustem for, say, a dip pen (which is extremely cool.) It is solid sterling silver so very heavy.
My favorite to use is probably the Montblan Starwalker, the rubber finish and substantial size makes it a pleasure to write with.

I think a "Breakfast Launching System" would be much more exciting and useful - especially for two-year-olds.

Then I was charmed by a Yafa mini pen...until I lost mine (easy to lose because its very small )
Now I've got this Sensa "Minx Gold" mini BP in a leather pouch in my pocket at all times.
I got it at a huge discount at a department store $100 slashed down to $9 @!!
