I have two of each.   180 degrees different, but each has its own charm.

 

Rubbing it in are you?  :D

 

You've got extras & Christmas is coming...

Yesterday came the parcel with tools from Conid. Antwerppen Regular has been disassembled, cleaned and greased - no improvement, piston still works in a hard and jerky way; this is just dangerous for the nib, if by a sudden jump of the pen during refill from bottle it will hit bottom of the bottle. 

This means it is time to contact Conid company. 

 

Maybe try using a bit of silicone grease on the piston rod. That helped mine (a Minimalistica) and it's now a smooth operator.

No, the rod itself works fine and smooth; as long as the main piston is not engaged. It gives the impression that either this particular o-ring on the piston is a tad too big or too rough, or the inside of the barrel is less polished (machined part - highly unlikely).
