my 80 didn't cap properly, it was super, super tight and wouldn't go all the way on.

 

The nib sucked too. but I loved the shape and pattern on the cap

 

Where can one buy parker 45 nibs? if I could find a broad, oblique or stub 45 nib for under $50, I might try it again.

Some sellers on eBay sell NOS nibs in the original packaging, which is much safer than getting a used one.

 

Five Star Pens also has a lot of P45 nibs at reasonable prices. I got my steel broad from them for something like $20, but they also have rare sizes like soft 14k UK nibs as well.

 

I got my favorite 14k P45 nib from FPN member piscov who tuned it for me before shipping it. Highly recommended! I just bought an MB nib off of him too.
