Hey all, I bought an M200, and was poking around what was left of my searches online. I found a barrel with working piston on eBay for an M150 ($35). Now I know the nibs can be found in loads of places probably for another $30. But, I didn't even think about the cap. Would it be difficult to find a cap for a Pelikan M150, or is it compatible with the caps for other Pelikans? Does it become financially unreasonable to get the 3 pieces separately? I thought it'd be a nice project to add to over time.

They are not interchangeable. M150 is smaller.

Check with martiniauctions.com
They have M150 caps as well as some M100 caps which I believe are the same size as the M150.

Oh they do! Thanks, but then totalling the costs puts the price actually a chunk of change above just buying a full M150 on eBay.... Oh well, was a cute project to think of. Wish I lived in a place with enough fountain pens to find these things at flea markets~

Youre best bet would be to get the whole pen in one shot rather than piece meal. Youll likely pay more tracking down the individual components.

I've seen M150 caps on ebay, usually from Seitz-Kreuznach or missin-pen.de, but no M150 caps up atm.

They usually go for around $50+s/h so more economical to just buy a whole pen as others have pointed out.
