yep, you just need to trim off the ridge at the very top and it fits nicely. To refill, unscrew the nib, pull out the mechanism and remove the cap and refill. It'd be nice if you could reload from the back, BUT I'd rather have a pencil that know won't break.

Wow! Thanks Mike.

Just to clear up any of my confusion I borrowed an Image from Anthony at Penworks.

Is this the ridge your refering to? How did you remove it? Dremmel? Would it just be a slide in mechanism, kinda like a standard refill?

yep, that's the refill and that's the ridge. I just used my utility knife to trim around the edge and remove it. Once that's done it slid into the pen just fine.

Got around to taking some pics.

1) refill with the ridge removed(and shortened to accommodate an EB, but it doesn't effect the use in the long click)
2) refill inserted into the long click.
3) Close up
4) with the nib in place. And yes it worked fine.
5) Same refill in an EB (needs to be shortened by the amount of the thin little piece on the cap, but be careful as it can open a hole and the leads escape)
6) same EB with the stock Parker in place.

The part I do not like about this kit is the fact the pen and pencil are not the same length. Seems strange to make matching pen and pencil and not be the same length. I only made one so I did not try and see if they could be made different, the tubes are different length in the kit package, crazy. So watch it when you turn and assemble

Thanks for the heads up. I will keep that in mind.
