Default Gel Refill for Montblanc Rollerball?

I'd liked to convert my Montblanc rollerball into a gel ball. I like
the rollerball, but I like gel balls even better. Is there a gel
refill that fits a Montblanc rollerball?

Take refill of Pilot G-2. Remove that cap from its other end. Shorten
that translucent tube and put that cap back back to that open end.

I think it's the other way around -- a Montblanc refill is longer than a G2
refill. E.g.:

http://www.instructables.com/id/EWAM...71N2/?ALLSTEPS

So to put a G2 refill in a Montblanc, you'd have to find a way to lengthen
it.

Yep. I just found that out. The G2 refill is shorter than the
Montblanc rollerball refill. Even so, it won't fit, because it isn't
threaded like the Montblanc rollerball refill. It simply wont insert
far enough into the pen. Even if you could insert it all the way, it
wouldn't be functional (at least without a spacer of some kind). It
would move up and down due its shortness and the lack of threading.

So it looks like you'd have to do something like swap the endcaps of the
refills and machine (turn down or tap) the lower step of the G2 refill --
which might not be possible, unless the plastic is really thick there.

Well, something might still turn up, so I hope other people read this
thread. I have a 1950s Waterman "Sapphire" ballpoint, and I thought
*nothing* current would fit it (it has an unusual form). I heavily modified
a Cross refill to fit... then found out a Cartier "Must" refill works.

Whoops! Actually I was thinking about that WWW-page but I remembered it
wrong way.

Aha! When I read that page again, I come up to this suggestion: Take
that blue thing from Montblanc refill. Remove that black thing from
Pilot G-2 -refill and then put that blue thing to to that place.

A Monteverde USA Capless Gel Refill will perfectly fit a Montblanc Ballpoint Pen. Can be bought in fine, medium and broad points.
