You can modify a standard slimline to take a Parker refill by flipping the transmission around and pressing it into the upper barrel. You'll have to play around with the proper depth to press it in and you'll probably have to enlarge the hole in the nib to allow the larger Parker tip to protrude. The refill doesn't attach to the slimline mechanism but is extended based on the movement of the mechanism when twisted and retracts because of the spring on the Parker refill. I haven't done this myself (yet) but have seen pens that it has been done on and they work great and you'd never tell it wasn't supposed to be that way.
