This instructable is for the ball point pen refill not the gel refill. The ball point pen refill doesn't dry out.

This sounds great, but don't waste your money on the Mont Blanc refill. Buy a G2 Pro, and be done with it. The Mont Blanc ink refills are designed to be capped, and will dry out if not capped. The G2 does not have a cap. My ink dried out in less than 2 weeks, and the original G2 ink is back in, and working great. The same thing happened on 2 different pens, 2 locations.

I've never seen a hack like this. I simply cut off the rear end of the Mont Blanc refill to make it the same height as the G2 refill. What can I say? It's a bit rough, the clicker sometimes doesn't allow the tip to retract, but it works well enough. I definitely like it a lot. The Mont Blanc refill works much better than the G2. I get more resistance from the Mont Blanc refill which allows me that extra control to form my cursive letters better.

Awesome instructable! When I made it using the G2 casing, I found that using the Mont Blanc tip cover was kind of a tight fit. Instead, I tried cutting two 12mm sections from a G2 ink refill and it worked perfectly!
