    bmwboris - No worries! Glad ya got the info. :)
    Well, this Field Pen came almost 50 years after (rounded - 48-ish maybe) the AG-7. Funny - the astronaut pen was one of the first things I thought of when I saw it as well - small world!

    My first experiences with a side-button-push-to-retract mechanism, though, came when the "gravity-activated" multipens popped up with that feature; I have an earlier version of the Fisher triple-action pen (before they came with the stylus option) that's reviewed there - that was actually my first online pen order (snippets of the order confirmation next, fwiw - I think the "TA" in TAN referred to triple-action):

    Date of Order: Thursday, September 3, 1998

    I guess since I'm in Texas, my package arrived sooner. These are the new tactile Turn Slider pens from Will Hodges. The Cu is my favorite. The stainless will be a Christmas present for my oldest son. Beautiful craftsmanship!

    Looking for a good edc pen, maybe tactical, just not to big and something where you don't have to hold the cap while writing? And preferably not to expensive.. JR

    They work great ! Takes a little getting used to though if like me, you've only used clicky pens.

    The Pentel clicky is a nice pen. But I managed to mess up the clip on mine.
    The Retrakt is a Very nice pen the runs G2 refills. Highly recommended.

    I've got a metal pentel energel that I was running my refills through, but now that I've discovered that my energel refills fit the paper mate inkjoy gel pen bodies, I've been using them instead. It's not a metal pen, but it's more comfortable to use.

    Nice pens, I have a space pen, and a lot of those zebra 701's, those are one of my fav! Those Karas Kustoms look cool just a little out of my league, I have a UZI imitation coming for trial, hey for $3 it's cheaper then a 701! JR

    Any 'clicks' type that accepts a Parker style refill can usually be fitted with a Fisher refill. Nice thing about those refills is they are pretty impervious to leaks etc. You could also get the Fisher AG-7 astronaut pen, which is a clicky, with action similar to some of the 'bolt' style pens you see in the posts above.

    Although not 'clicky' type, the Retro 51 Tornado pens are really nice; a twist mechanism that is one-handed. These also use the Parker style refills and hence can be fitted with Fisher refills.

    L'chaim!

    Did you get a tracking number beforehand? I'm waiting for a Cu & Ti and didn't need to have the hole enlarged for space pen refills. I'm just getting too anxious!

    I had an email stating the package had been mailed along with a tracking number. I had the Cu enlarged for the Space pen refill. Took two days to get here first class. Will is only a couple hundred miles from me though.

    Got a converter cartridge for my Lamy and loaded it with some Cult Pens' Deep Dark Blue ink. It looks fantastic on paper.
