I have ordered three of these, due in January. Does anyone know if refills can be fitted? As these were before Piggy Back/Jumbo/Power Point/Lubriglide.

 

Edit. And one Capri Mk I, which I think is also pre Piggy Back etc.

 

Edit 2. I have now seen some Capri Mk I adverts on youtube where they use the Piggy Back refill, so if there were no varients I should be ok with that one.

Thanks, interesting site, although they don't ship them 1950s refills outside the US and the UK Fisher site does not list them, only Lubriglide equivalents. Hopefully Lubriglides may fit the Deluxe or i'll be able to modify them.

The pens arrived today, good news is the Deluxe pens take the modern Lubriglide. The Capri Mark I is faulty, the mechanism, but had a Piggy Back refill inside (compatible with Lubriglide).
