    Default Pilot 74 barrel alternatives

    So I recently purchased a Pilot to what I believe went to a model 74. It was cheap and came with the #5 nib. So now I知 trying to find a cheap pen body that値l accept it. So far I致e found that it fits onto my Franklin Christoph 20, Leonardo Momento, and a montverde invincia. Theoretically I could just use one of these pens but I actively use them and really enjoy the nibs I have on them. Also, the pilot con 70 doe t fit into any of these pens. Does anyone know of any cheaper pen options that I could use for body?

    If I read your question correctly you bought some parts of a Pilot Custom 74 pen that include a nib but exclude a barrel. If you can't get a spare barrel then I believe the nib from a Pilot 74 should fit into a Prera as well as a Plumix.

    The Pilot Con 70 is a great converter for the Custom 74 but I don't know which other models it fits. It would be easy to sell. Many would buy it. Including me.

    Thanks! It was only $10 so I値l keep the converter for my 912. And maybe it値l fit into the Petra or Plumix. Thanks for your suggestion!
