Parker pen rollerball refills - I keep buying ones that are too short

I have this old gold Parker rollerball pen from the 1980's. I've bought a couple of refills for it but both are too short. Every listing I see for parker rollerball refills say "fits all cap rollerballs". But, alas, not mine.

The refills I bought measure 4.5 inches, and I would guess are 1/4 inch short? And I can't find any info on t' net.

Can anyone help?

Great Idea Ygor

Currently in email convo with them now! They replied back to me in about 15mins. How cool is that!

Thanks Ygor


Been emailing a rep from Parker's distributors in the US, and it seems genuine Parker rollerball refills are 4.75 inches, whereas the ones I bought (that are perhaps counterfeit) are only 4.5 inches. I did get these refills off Ebay.
