I recently obtained a Moonman M2. I am rather enamored with it. But I have come across one problem. There is an inner section and the ink seems to leak into the space between the inner and outer section. I've found some reviewers that have removed it but they don't discuss or show how they did it. Does anyone know? Without doing so, it's really difficult to completely clean the pen. Thanks!

I wouldnt' worry about it. Really the only way is to take the nib unit apart, if I understand your meaning of "inner section". Not the best idea in the world to do on a regular basis to any pen. Increases likelihood of breakage.

The inner section is called a nib unit.  You can unscrew it from the section (or grip) but the o ring on the back end will make it difficult to do so.  

Good luck.

Did you try flushing it with a bulb syringe?

The nib unit just unscrew and come out the nib end a bit of resistence due to the O rings doing their job but nothing hard. If you do had to do it just use a light touch
