I have a postban US Government Skillcraft black retractable pen, and I had the solid silver colored metal band and the pen spring off of a preban Skillcraft pen.

I know that the first pen is a postban pen, it is made up of recycled materials. It has the flat black color.

I am wondering if I can get in trouble for having preban Skillcraft pen parts on my postban Skillcraft pen.

What if I put preban Skillcraft pen parts into my Bic pen?

How about owning preban Skillcraft pen parts and owning complete postban Skillcraft pens?

Who makes civilian Skillcraft pens? Are they mil-spec?

Long as you keep the bic logo'ed receiver you should be ok, now if the bic is pre-ban and if it will fit you can probably legally put the skillcraft high-cap ink mag into it, but this is a gray area.

Are they mil-spec? I'd assume so, they don't want us having the real good stuff do they??

I wouldn't try it. What if you are out one day, and an ATF agent were to see you eriting some thing down with it? Would'nt be a pretty sight. I think you should just cut 1/4 off the ink cartridge and fill out the appropriate form and pay a $200 tax stamp in order to be legal. Those Short Inked Pens sure look nice. They are light and easy to conceal as well.

Man! Don't butcher a pre-ban!  It'll be worth big bucks some day.
