I have an Atomic Bear tactical pen that I need to get a refill for. It takes the standard Parker refill. I want to put something in there that writes better than the standard refill. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I replace my Parker ballpoint refills with the matching Gel ones. 

 

However, both Schmidt and Monteverde make refills, but I haven't tried them.

Nice. I will have to look into those

Try the Parker Quinkflow ballpoint black refills.
Black (not gray) ink, smooth-writing, little pressure required.

Get the Itoya 1.0 mm or 0.7 mm gel refills. I heard that they write really good. I ordered a whole bunch in 1.0 mm in blue and 0.7 mm in black two weeks ago from the seller Temaluca on eBay and just got mine in late last week. I also wanted to get the 0.7 mm in blue too, but the seller didn't have any and I was disappointed about that. I haven't used any in any of my Parker pens yet. I've heard excellent things about the Itoya gel refills from others that have used them in their Parker pens. The only thing that I've heard about them is that they are not water resistant, but I wouldn't know anything about this because I haven't used any of them yet to test them out to see if this is true.
