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

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.
