Some pics of a push cap Guider purchased maybe a decade back. They made it in several colors and I bought all of them in a fit of fancy. This particular one was the only one that got inked. The stock tubular nib was no good but I found some replacement Hero nib with a fatter point from a shop here. The cap was vented like a sieve which was pretty tough to seal to prevent dryouts. Anyway. I did all that with this one pen. I have inked it up today again as a companion to my Deccan Five Star Super.

Thanks for reminding me of this pen. I've got a black one, it hasn't been inked for years, but not because I didn't like it.

The person who sold it to me called it a Guider P51. I honestly do not remember if the nib needed work, but I am sure it's still the original nib, and when I dipped it just now, it wrote immediately.

I'm going to fill and use it, see if I still like it...

I do remember putting some nail polish over the hole in the cap, to prevent evaporation. The cover is still there.

Great. You have to seal the inner cap too. If you seal the inner cap you don’t have to bother about the outer steel cap. The inner cap has the clip screw hole and side hole that needs attention. HTH. Enjoy your pen and thanks for reading.

Nice pen. The ring around the section makes it look so similar to Parker 51. 

Only in looks. 😊. Inside it’s just a camlin 47 ebonite feeder and a hero nib. An Indian 00 will fit there I think. I have not tried. BTW on a 51 with such a ring, the ring sits slightly proud of the hood and barrel to engage the cap clutch. On a super 21 the ring is flush like on Guider. It has no function. It is only for looks. HTH.
