I recently purchased a pair of Sheaffer pens.  They are Balance models which are lever filll.  Both are white dot, one with a lifetime nib, the other with a feather nib.

Is the Section a friction fit with the body on these models, or do they screw in like the Triumph nib versions of the pens?

I’d like to know this as well, because I also own a ca. 1936 lever-filler Balance.

Duplicate post.  Somehow this question ended up in the Waterman forum.  I've moved it to Sheaffer.  You'll find the question answered here.
