That sounds above my pay grade then. I have only just swapped a nib and my understanding was that Lamys are among the easiest nibs to change. Thanks for helping!
Friction fit nibs aren't necessarily hard to change - as long as the manufacturer hasn't introduced some kind of glue or solvent it's relatively straightforward. Carefully, gently pull and wiggle the nib and feed until both slide out, replace the nib and slowly, gently place the nib/feed back in as a unit. If the fit is tight, just be patient and use a piece of rubber or non-stick material to help you grip without damaging the nib or feed.
I can't speak for the Magnum specifically or evan's experience, but I've changed plenty of friction-fit nibs and am no expert. Perhaps you would be up to the task!
