Waterman Expert Rollerball Refill Problem



Recommended Posts

Hi all,

 

I've got a weird problem with my Waterman Expert Rollerball pen (https://jet.com/product/Waterman-Expert-Black-with-Gold-Trim-Fine-Point-Rollerball-Pen-S0951680/1aa4b5be1b6a417e863fa54fe31332d5) and Pilot G2 refills (https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B004P3LW0U/). According to everything I've read on here and other places, the refills should fit just fine. However, the refill is loose inside the barrel. The nib (is that what it's called?) drops down about an eighth of an inch when I lift it off the page.

 

Are there two different sizes I'm not aware of? Has a piece fallen out of the pen that reinforces the refill? Am I just that dumb?

 

Thanks for any and all help!

Hey, lookie there, I'm dumb after all. The spring fell out. Bought a regular G2 and added the spring. No more problems, and the refill fits perfectly. Leaving this for posterity and any other hapless Googlers.

Yes, thanks for highlighting this issue. The same also applies to Pilot MR rollerballs as there is a spring in as well

Pilot MR uses small spring, which fits Pilot G-2 refills only.

 

For other gel refills (EnerGel, Uniball 207) normal sized spring needs to be installed instead.

Scratching away on paper...
