    Yes, I have tried them in a bullet. I gave up on both the bullet pen and Zebra ballpoint refills in favor of Space Pen refills in 301 compact pens. Both the Fisher & Zebra refills are 3-1/2 inches in length, so there is no "trimming" required to interchange them. The Fisher refill point is somewhat larger in diameter than the Zebra, so it won't fit a Zebra Pen without enlarging the opening very slightly, but Zebra into Fisher works without modification. I've had both the metal & plastic refills and had no issues with either. Unless there have been changes to the bullet pen (mine was purchased a long time ago in a pen store far, far away), I'm puzzled why it would not work.

    The metal part on the Zebra is too large in diameter to fit into my Bullet.

    The G-301 (plastic) refills fit. The metal ones do not.

    I bought a pair of F301A pens last night, the all plastic refill does indeed fit in my Bullet, there's just a wee bit of wiggle at the tip though.

    The first Surefire pen fits nearly all refills. I'm always putting different ones in it.

    A Pilot G2 refill can be cut down to fit the Tactile Turn Shaker (perfect fit with no wiggle) and the Kaweco Sport rollerball. One might ask why not just get the Tactile Turn Mover that takes the full size G2? For me, it's because I like the balance of the smaller pen.

    Highly unlikely. Lamy are notorious for proprietary designs, and after a cursory search, I could not find any similar refills.

    If you're up for some experimentation you could maybe jury rig a D1 refill to fit. D1 are common multi/expandable pen refills, but I think they're about 6mm longer than m22s, so if you cut one down it could work. Theyre usually metal though so you'd need a hacksaw or metal clippers. And you might need to tape wrap it because they're thinner than m22s. However d1s come in lots of types so youd open yourself up to ballpoint, hybrid and gel refills if it worked.

    I am SOLD on the Pilot G2 .7mm refill. It is a GREAT logbook pen. And does everything else VERY well.
    The plastic bodies and clips leave me cold!
    What reasonably priced metal body can take G2?

    New member here. Hoping the question hasn't been answered already and I just couldn't find it...

    I have a Montblanc Classic ballpoint. Recently tried a friend's Surefire pen with an EasyFlow 9000 inside and loved the feel. Does anyone know if the EasyFlow 9000 fits in the Montblanc?

    I used to have a Montblanc ballpoint pen. I tried using a Schmidt easy flow 9000 broad tip in it. Unfortunately, it doesn't fit. I read somewhere that the premium brands try to keep a limit on what types of refill can be used in their products. A Fisher space pen refill may fit. Hope that helps.

    There is a G2 Pilot hack to fit a MontBlanc which involves a very slight cut down with a sharp knife.

    I've recently fallen in love with the montblanc M rollerball and have been curious if anyone knows if the refill is compatible with the Ti2Techliner

    I don't think the hack you're referring to is for the Montblanc ballpoint. I believe it is for the rollerball. For me, it's too fiddly, but the Zebra Sarasa refill works easier in the Montblanc rollerball. The original poster, however has a ballpoint Montblanc.
