Do I Only Need To Buy The Koh-I-Noor Replacement Nib, Or...?

So, I inherited this set of rapidograph pens. I love them! I've never used anything like them before. But, at the size I like to ink at, the #3 (.8 mm, green band) is just a little too large sometimes, and the #2 (.6 mm, red band) a little too small. I found out about the #2.5 (.7 mm, light blue band, not pictured below), which I'd really like to try out.

 

My question is, do I need to buy the entire pen, or can I just buy one of these replacement tips and put it in the body of one of pens i use infrequently? New to rapidographs and I know that they can be touchy and some iterations were/are discontinued; I don't want to accidentally buy something incompatible with my older set.

Thanks!

He knows Koh-I-Noor products inside out and sells them at very reasonable prices. And he can get basically anything direct from the factory warehouse.

 

No relation other than being a happy repeat customer.

My sister uses technical pens and you're probably better off with older nibs. There's been a falloff of quality, but they should theoretically still fit your pens.

      @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.
