Parker 45 Flighter Stripped Down


Recommended Posts


I bought a "New Old Stock" Parker 45 Flighter on Ebay a little while back and was amused to find that it had not been stuck together properly when it was put together so all I needed to do was unscrew the end cap and the clip screw and it fell apart into it's component parts (except for the ink collector that is fixed into the shell section). I thought it would be a good opportunity to have a good look into just what makes up the pen.

Great pics! I've never had to take mine apart but this will be great if I ever do. Thanks for sharing.

Interesting to see how the black end cap is threaded on to the barrel insert. I have, I thought, the same Parker 45, but the end cap just spins freely. I have never been able to get it off which is annoying. Mine does not appear to have the plastic insert in the barrel.

There is also a P-51 style collector inside the section that you can't see here.


I'm not sure How they are attached but I have had one come out the converter end before.

That was the one bit that was properly fixed into place on this pen Bruce. I decided not to hammer it out as the shell section isn't too bad on this pen, ie the plastic shrinkage problem, so it might come in useful one day. One day I will have a go on a badly shrunk one!

      @Ruaidhri This was an absolutely wonderful bit of writing, and I hope that you're able to maintain the style once all of the medications are out of your system.  Take care and recover quickly!

      These comments make me sad as I sympathise with Ruaidhri, having great difficulties in being taken seriously. Or being taken at all (no off-colors jokes, please!) In spite of overwhelming odds,  Ruaidhri -now I know how to spell it- made a courageous decision and stuck to it. I was diagnosed with a similar growth in a place I will not reveal. Oh, well, if you insist it was Mount Sinai Hospital. But I firmly intend to walk in Ruaidhri's footsteps, if he will let me, on my next visit to Dublin.

      Reminds me of the day my associates and I developed a cure for all mankind's ills and mistakenly wrote it down with invisible ink.

      Was that the end of the Laboratory? Somehow the exactitude created a fully destructive device, as always!
