Wow , long time ! 

 

 So my No1 Moonman M2 ( Jinhao NIB ) 

It's been over 6 months (?) since last I used this pen .

I parked it and havent touched it ..

 

 Worked right away with no issues ..

 

Moonman M2 No2 ( Bobby Custom NIB ) 

 

 Is it 5 months maybe ?  

Same deal , worked right away ..

 

 No1 has a rubber O ring to seal against leaks into the NIB / Feed ..  Yeah it's leaking , so thats my fault .. 

 

 Pen 2 has the factory original O ring , and is not leaking .  

 

 Might want a factory O ring for Pen No 1 ...  

 

 I am happy with the M2 from Moonman ( OK not the factory NIB's ) ...  

 

I have 3 M2's , and just ordered what looks like a CLONE M2 ( Counterfeit ) .. 

Lets see how the fake compares ...

Fake it might not be, OEM marketed version more likely , after all the Mfr had long in that part of the business

Hmmmm , OEM ?   It's about 1/4 the price ...   I can hope it's OEM ! 

 

 But the spider senses say - Buyer Beware !  

 

I await to see what the Universe brings me ...

There is a brand new M2 in a box to compare too .

I bought one of these cheap M2 clones and they are not OEM. Same proportions and size, but the barrel is injection molded and very different inside. The plastic feels cheap and the build quality isn't comparable to the moonman, cap threads and nib are scratchy.

I think it's OK for the price, but not really an alternative to the M2.

Totally agree.  This pen symbolizes all of the bad things about Chinese pens and Ebay.  It's ridiculous how obviously bad this pen resembles the M2.  It does hold ink but writing with it is a challenge.  I have it in my project box to see what I can do with it.  Since it was so cheap, I had to bite just to see what would show up.  My advice would be to save the money or get a couple Jinhao 992's.  About the same money, they actually write and you can keep the nibs.
