I have somebody that is wanting a custom pen made. He wants a 375 H&H Magnum cartridge rollerball pen with Mopane for the cap. I can't do it right now so do any of you experts that I have trained :wink: want to give it a try? He is going to pay $100 for the pen.

Thanks for the offer Viking, but I am about 300 miles north right now. LOL I am hoping to be back down that way next week sometime.

Sounds like a heckuva challenge, Bobby.. I had some mopane once I got in an african wood collection..but nana mas.. Also, the 375 is a BIG ***** bullet !!. If he wants a rollerball, then it would have to be a two piece screw on pen to keep the ink from leaking or evaporating I think.. If the customer is a 'reloader' and has some unprimed or spent cartridges and some bullets to fit, it might be 'doable'..but I dunno about the threading on the caps. Might be possible with a churchill or cigar kit if the parts would fit in the cartridge/blank.. If ya can get a cartridge and bullet from him I'd be glad to give it a shot and just send it back to you to do biz with him. Also might be able to work it into one of the 'biggies'...Emperor, Lotus, etc.. Would have to see the cartridge first though....just a few thoughts ...jd

It worked just like the slimlines do on the cartridge pens you make with them. Just put the tube inside and wrap it if you have too and then epoxy.

Ok I just did some calulating and the 3/8th tube should just fit inside of the 375 H&H Magnum cartridge.

I know you'll have plenty to do when you get back but if you want a break and play with some tools the offer is open any time.
