    Default Feed is not aligned with nib

    Just bought a new Sailor 1911 large. The feed is offset slightly from the center of the nib. Do I need to send back or could I adjust it?

    Try just a very slight push with fingers on both sides of the nib to see if it centres perfectly.

    I would just add to Chrissy’s excellent advice: grip the nib high up towards the section in order to avoid any damage to the tines. If it doesn’t want to move easily I would send it back. Proceed with caution. Good luck.
