Montblanc 149 Platinum Loose Feeder/nib



haltugal

Recommended Posts

I just received a MB 149 platinum body with no nib and feeder since I already had those two items. The collar was already inserted. The feed goes in until it hits the bottom and the horizontal notch on the nib is just above the barrel. The nib goes in very quickly and when it hits the bottom of the collar, the feeder is the same if not little longer that the nib.

I have 4 other MBs and changed nib/feeder with the MB platinum resulting in the same situation: the nib/feeder is too loose for the platinum collar.

 

Questions:

Do I need to get a different nib or a feeder (I have plastic feeder similar to the pictures of Platinum on websites)?

do I need to get a different feeder? if so will it fit into the Platinum?

 

Thank you for considering my questions.

Hal

Do I need to get a different collar? How would I know iit will fit/screw-in into the Platinum's barrel?

Updated wording to make it clearer, I hope.

I had the wrong feeder. I bought a newer feeder, placed it into the collar, and and everything is snug. The pen writes very smoothly now.

      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.
