Very Dodgy kit

I have made a stack of the Sierra pens in gold and silver but decided to try the Platinum pen kit. Much more expensive to go with the looks but regrettably it seems made by someone completely different. The bushings for this pen are pretty ropy and needed wrapping in tape to pad them out to fit the barrel which I reluctantly did before turning the body which oddly enough turned out well for the first time. Have snug bushings really does make a surprising difference to nearly snug.

Assembly presented a whole world of new problems. The clip end was a perfectly snug fit with just the right amount of friction when inserting. The nib end, however, was the complete opposite. It was so sloppy the sides didn't even touch the barrel. Clearly something has been mixed up in the kits. My recommendation is don't buy this unless you have the staff open the packet and demonstrate to you that the parts included are made to fit the barrel provided. On that note, insist they do the same with the bushings.

Tip to improve reliability

A great looking pen, but there can be a occasionally the pen mechanism can unscrew itself in the centre (brass band) if the customer over screws. Before any assembly I quarter turn the pen mechanism back and forth several times to loosen it. I also part unscrew the pen mechanism in the centre and add a drop of superglue and screw it up.Remove any excess glue. I then assemble the pen as instructed.

Sierra update

Initially, I had a problem with these kits. However, since the revision of the instructions which I follow to the letter, I'm happy to report no further problems. Thank you Axminster for your advice. I now use the Sierra kits on a regular basis and would reccomend them to others.
