I messed up big time and cracked my fore part of my MB 22 and I need a different feeder case. Please see attached pic. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I appreciate any assistance; I really want to get this pen in working order. Thanks!

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but old MB parts are increasingly hard to find. MB doesn't have them and collectors will often be reluctant to part with them, as they can use them to fix their own pens.

 

Parts-pens from (eg) ebay used to be the solution - but, these days anything with the white snowcap can sell for silly money, so that's not always a viable option, either.

 

There are some experts on the forum who can repair cracks, they may be an option?

 

Why do you need a new feeder case, if it's the outer section that is cracked? Or have I misunderstood?

 

Good luck in your quest.

Feeder case was one that required a small O-ring (I found a different one already). I tried an o-ring and it was too big and cracked the outer section.

I have a burgundy section that looks like yours.  Your pen looks black, though.

 

There is Five Star Pens, who has a lot of other pen parts.  Perhaps one of the Parts sellers knows someone who has the part you need. 

 

I acquired the burgundy section in a group of parts on ebay.  "Montblanc parts" is a good starting search, and repeat the search from time to time and something might come up.  A lot of these parts searches take time and patience.  Sometimes it takes years to find a part.  I can remember throwing a pen away only to find the part needed shortly thereafter.  Patience is something needed in collecting anything.  The item you seek might take a long time to be available in the condition you want it in.  When you are exasperated and at the end of your tether searching for something, patience.
