Looking for a student, newbie, adventurer in the fountain pen world that would love to try this eyedropper.

As you will see, it was used with a prple ink and I couldn't get  the stain out of the cap and around the clip, but I am sure that with the proper solution  you may be able to clean it properly. All other parts have been cleaned thoroughly.

 

I will  someone that: 1-lives in the mainland USA 2- can pay for shipping  ($6.75) through PayPal 

I may decide promptly since I just want to give it away.

 

As a matter of thanks for previous PIFs, i am looking for the pens I no longer use to give away. It's difficult, but here is one.

It has its tricks and was fun to use , but it is not a keeper for me. :wub:

Looks like an interesting pen

Is the cap finial screwed on? In that case if you unscrew it you might be able to reach the purple ink to clean it...

Not an entry, btw, but a great PiF. What is the pen?

It was sold to me as an "Sniper" (from India) but some tell me is something else... I have given up on eyedroppers because I dod not use them as much so the ink stays longer, which is not good. I replace inks often, works better for me, a random writer and sketcher. It. Is a beautiful pen, can hold a lot of ink

I will send to Lelouch asap for being the first to answer the PIF. There may be some more in the pipeline as I decide what to let go - if I can.

The body looks like that of an ASA Sniper. I had one before, also in full acrylic, clear finish though. However, the section (from what can be seen through the cap) seems not right, as the sniper was designed around having a hooded nib. Maybe someone replaced the section before selling it?

 

Also, I had the pen with a clip. Thus, the finial was screwed in and I was able to unscrew it in the past. It needed some rubber (something like rubber bands at least) for the right amount of grip.

 

While the sniper that I had never quite worked right (sad to say) I kinda do miss the feel of the pen. There was something there for me. I'll probably try another similar pen in the future.

I don't think it wa sreplaced ny user. I bought from original internet  Seller and it specified one could order with open nib OR the hooded nib. Since I don't like hooded nibs, I ordered this one. it is legit as far as I know and I was first USER. Cost was $30.
