Yes, it's not really an aerometric filler, it's a converter. 45's can use a converter (any Parker converter including squeeze, slide, or screw) or cartridges. Just pull the converter straight off the section.

One test is worth a thousand expert opinions.

In fact Parker 45 was first cartridge and converter filler fountain pen marketed a big scale by Parker Pen Co.

I'll admit that I'd rather use the squeeze converter than the more modern style converters or cartridges in my 45s.  But I'm weird that way....  :rolleyes:

What a pen. Not only does the design allow for rapid and easy nib changes and simple disassembly of the feed and the nib for cleaning, but also has four filling and ink storage options - squeeze, slide or screw converters and cartridge. And all of them work admirably well. The Parker 75 and Sonnet have similar flexibility.

 

I wonder if there are any other manufacturers' fountain pens offer such flexibility.

+1 The Parker 65 has the same features and is another great pen.

I find these pens to work better with a cartridge.  Ditto the 75 and the Sonnet.  These pens might be versatile, but the 51 still works better, even with its old design

As already commented, the name derives apparently from the fact that it was designed specifically for a 'cartridge' - the inspiration being the famous handgun and its cartridge.
