Default Virage Components

I just thought I'd send a note to let you know about a somewhat minor issue I've had with recently received Virage ballpoint components. The clip will not slide over the finial transmission adapter. I first tried with the clip finished in gunmetal, and thought it just might be too heavy of a plating, but, the same was true of the chrome kit I assembled today. I was able to grind down the inside diameter of the clips with a Dremel tool, and then they worked fine. Not a huge issue, but, I thought you might want to touch base with Berea and see if anyone else has reported the problem.

The fit has been marginal for a long time. It's a little worse on some platings than others

I made a wood tube with ID just slightly over the OD of the finial adapter stub.

I use a pen press and this wood tube to press the clip on.

Kids rule the world !!! .... eventually if not already !

Thanks for the replies. Even if it is a bit more effort, IMHO the kit is worth the effort.
