It is quite similar to the  78G. Only the two rings on the cap of the 78G, are missing in yours.

 

I am sorry I cannot be of more help.

nice pen -- "quite similar to the 78G" may be the closest you'll get, since Pilot makes millions of pens, sells worldwide, and sells different pens to different markets.  I use a Legance, never sold here in the US, Japan-only market.

Thanks all. I guess its so mass produced it doesn't get a model number....

 

It amazes me pilot can make such quality pens and so precise for the price. While I have comparable writers for the price or cheaper; nothing has the quality feel of Pilots. The cheap plastic somehow feels better, and the cap and click are more robust, with a good grip to boot...
