I got my first P51 today and I just find out that is Mark III.

I just read that this pens were not made with the same materials as the Mark I or Mark II; instead of lucite the used a softer plastic that is more propense to shrink and scratching.

My pen is in excellent condition, actually I think Im the first owner, so my question is: how much time does my pen have before any signs of shrinking or finger wear marks or anything like that?

 

I'm kind of sad because I bought this pen for its bulletproofness... :(

No need to be sad. They are as bulletproof as could be especially when new. It is only that they are not made of the material as used for the earlier MK1/2 51s. If you handle them with care they may outlast you. Congrats on your new 51.

 

What color, trim and cap combination your new 51 is?

I have had a UK mark III 51 in bloody burgundy for at least 15 yeaars. It still works the same and looks great. Rolled gold cap. It's over forty years old and hasn't decayed yet.
