    Top is a 701 Modded with the 402 Insert... One nice clicky Mech Pencil...

    Bottom is 701 Modded with a Fisher Space Pen PR-4 Refill...

    Took Longer to go to store and get refill than to mod both pens...

    Thanks to the folks here for the idea to do this... was kinda fun...

    Nice.

    I have a handful of actual M-701 pencils, so no need to do that mod.

    Tried the Fisher SPR4 (medium point) mod on an F-701 and wasn't happy with the feel.
    Might get a fine point Fisher refill and try it again.

    Well in these parts finding a M701 is akin to pulling hens teeth... and it gave me something to do...

    Yes, they are elusive, that's for sure. I've only seen them on eBay.

    They won't be available in stores here until early 2011.

    Given the trouble I've had with the rather straightforward Fisher mod (messed up the clicker somehow), there is no way I'd attempt the 402/701 mod - I know how badly that would turn out for me :sigh:

    Thanks and it was an easy Mod once I figured it all out... been awhile since I did it and still loving the mod... Just wish I had the 7 lead and not the 5... oh well in a perfect world...

    Nice! I've done both of those. Now ya need to put the top end from an F402 on your F701 so it's all stainless.

    I learned about these mods here by reading posts.... I saw a post somewhere here on that topic... I do know you can replace the ink cartridge with a fisher SU4F mini refill... hope this helped...

    Good thinking. I just don't understand why they don't make the whole F701 stainless from the factory. $$$ I guess.

    Yeah, they did cheap out a little bit on the F-701.

    The tip has that plastic insert in it, whereas the F-402 is solid metal and has the metal ring around the clicker.
