I have leaking Moonman 2s. I don't know exactly when but I guess around 1-year-usage they started annoying me.

The problem is a seal between the inner section and the grip section. In the drawing, the inner section is the top drawing, the grip section below.

This seal seems to extend, gets loose and lets ink pass. The ink then moves in the area between the inner section and the grip section until it reaches your fingers or assembles in the cap.

In several of my Moonmans, I need to exchange that seal. Where to get such seals? Or do you make them by yourself?

And a question: how to remove the feed/nib from the inner section? I tried cautiously pulling - neither did I destroy it nor did it move.

Thank you

Is that the screw in nib unit collar if so the simple fix is applied a coat of silicone grease evenly onto the collar exterior and back it screwed in ; this actually applied to all nib unit type construction ; had seen similar issue with almost all brands of pen with similar ( and different brand's ) nib unit ; its pretty universal.  And getting the nib and feed off well they are just friction fitted so just patience and pull it
