Does anyone here have advice on opening the back end of the Aquila? The piston knob is open ended but I do not see a screw head as expected.

Never attempted it. However, if I were to do so then I would start by knocking out the pin which you will find running transversely through the turning knob in the knurled section.

I saw something on the knurled area but didn't have my loupe handy. I guess it's a pin :)

Had I know I wouldn't have even posted. I would have started there.

Ray, it may be merely that I am more accustomed to encountering pins in old pens.

Questions here are not wrong. There are many other new viewers.

I am used to pins when it comes to levers and such. My eyes haven't been the best lately. I did see something there but didn't have a loupe where I was when this happened. I am guessing it just "slips out" with something to poke it through.

Silly question. Why do you want to open the back end?

For a full cleaning and restoration. I have worked on several regular 88 models but this back end threw me until I realized it had that pen in the knob.
