“Stainless steel nib” is all we get for a description of the nib size? That’s sort of insulting. My guess is this is a Medium.
Has anyone tried using these as eye dropper pens?

In my knowledge, eyedropping is impossible for pens with metal barrels as they react with ink.
The clip does NOT have the signature Pelikan beak. Sheesh Massdrop, get your s*** together.
Really, Massdrop? I just picked up my parcel , and examined the contents. I am NOT a happy camper. You said you'd send 6 cartridges of ink. Every single cartridge I got was half full and showed evidence of being dried out at the top.

Those stripes near the top? That's dried-up ink. The blobs at the very top? That's ALSO dried-up ink. That is NOT getting six ink cartridges. That's getting outright garbage. And don't you DARE try to pull the BS that it must have dried during transit. That will be lying on your part, and I won't tolerate MORE lies from you. What kind of shady operation are you people running there?

That sucks but happens a lot. Cartridges sit a lot before reaching end user. Pop the top, add distilled or even tap water, shake well, and you'll be good as new. Since the ink isn't waterproof the dried stuff should reconstitute fine.
Does this pen have a metal or a plastic barrel?

Feels plastic to me.
Too bad the pen doesn't come in red. But it is a very nice price.
Really like this little pen, despite the polished chrome section, which is very slippery. The nib on both of mine were quite dry, and they were in there very tightly, but with some gentle wiggling and a paper towel they came out and were easily tuned.
The hinged clip is really nice, thusfar they haven't had any hard starting issues (they were dry to the point of requiring pressure to write initially) and both were quite smooth. The snap cap is secure and the hinged clip is really sweet. The lacquer on the barrels and caps is top notch, too, the pearl white glistens.
Cap posts nicely and doesn't unbalance the pen, length is good posted or not
I don't love medium nibs, but this is a good one.
Overall, a very simple, well made, understated pen that may require a little tweaking of the nib to write wetter.
My only complaint was one of the two boxes of cartridges I got was really old. the turquoise cartridges were half-desiccated through the plastic, and I think the pen should come with a converter.
Does this have a #5 nib ?
Also, I'd jump right in if this had fine as nib option.

pelikan never offered it with a fine, but it is a #5 nib. Both of mine were very dry writers but a little tuning fixed that.
I did get one box of very, very old cartridges that were half dessicated.
Well, I have to check this out. The price point is similar to the Pilot Metropolitan, so I want to give it a try and see how it works out.
Totally thought the color cartridge boxes looked like a tampon box
Seems like a good beginner pen and the price is attractive, but it's not quite the Pelikan I'm looking for.
Pelikan web site says 2 shorts or 1 long. Found one blog that mentioned converters, so it should probably take a standard international converter. Nib size is Medium.
Gotta figure these nibs are basic, and not up to the level of a 200 nib. I have a couple Pelikan school pens; they were total nails, but that's what you'd expect. Kinda figure these will be similar.
What is the nib size?
AtlantaTom
Medium only or at least that’s what I found Googling.
Are these compatible with any converters? Also, how is it compared to the M205, especially the nib performance? :)

Yeah, I guess it'll be limited by its size XP

This is nowhere near as good as the M200 series, and it's unreasonable to expect that at this price point. Mine seems to need a wee bit of tinkering to make it not so dry, but I'll run some Waterman Serenity Blue through it first to see if it's the ink I first loaded into it or the nib that's off. WSB will tell me which it is.
