Montblanc Leonardo Ballpoint Refill - Help Requested

 
I’m having difficulty with the fit of refills in n MB Leonardo ballpoint.
 
An older “Pix” marked refill allows the click mechanism to work perfectly, but when I fit a current production refill, the point barely protrudes from the nose of the pen. Maybe the recess in the refill end cap is deeper on the current product refill?
 
Can anyone please suggest a fix for this? Any help will be appreciated  :)

I've solved this issue.

 

The dimensional difference in the old vs new recess is very small. I snipped a very short length off a wooden cocktail stick - short enough to fit sideways in the plastic recess - and dropped it into the recess before reassembling the pen. The refill now fits perfectly, and I can live with the fiddliness, given how infrequently I will need to change refills   :)
