    I picked it up, it just came from the factory and was still in the original wrapper. The only problem. It wouldn't work at all. I was depending on it to work, if I ever needed it. I'm not gonna trust Glock, ball point pens to write anymore, when it's needed. :crying:

    I'm gonna see if they will send me a replacement.

    Are you sure you're not limp-wresting it? You have to press down really hard.

    I install aftermarket Parker ink refills in all my Glock pens and have never experienced a FTW (failure to write).:whistling:

    Yeah, I think it had a Gen 4 05 spring in it. I'll check to see if the new 05 version springs are ready yet. I do appreciate the help.

    You won't be able to use those pens for any paper work, other than for open division, at GSSF matches do to the aftermarket parts.

    On a serious note, my pen didn't write very well when I first got it. I wrote with it for about a day and the ink started flowing well like any other pen.

    If you want a new ink cartridge, another member of this forum recently posted and said that Parker Jotter Ballpen Refills will work in the Glock pen.
