Bastion Bolt Action Pen

Editor's Rating
4.8?
Discovered on 2017-10-16

Unleash your creativity with the Bastion Bolt Action Pen. Ideal for sketching and writing, this pen is a great tool to carry on you at all times. Enjoy the satisfying feeling of its bolt-action mechanism, which is fun to fiddle with and even helps you focus. Its secure and smart mechanical lock is free of parts that will break or wear out. In addition, you can choose from carbon fiber and stainless steel options, depending on your style. The stainless steel pen offers a sleek and sophisticated look. Likewise, the addition of carbon fiber gives you a high-tech and professional vibe. Featuring a carbon fiber tube and metal inserts, its design makes it durable and long-lasting. Finally, it uses a standard G2 refill that is easy to replace and swap with other inks, colors, and tips.

I'm also having issues finding any kind of refill that fits this pen. Tried monteverde, fisher space pen, and parker quinkflow. Not sure what the deal is, but obviously the list of acceptable refills is wildly inaccurate

Review from Kickstarter
Clip screws keep coming unscrewed on my SS pen. Guess I have to glue the screws in? Otherwise, nice looking pen.

Still waiting for my carbon pen !
An idea ?
Yasa Tahir
Review from Kickstarter
Still no luck with refills. So far I've tried the Schmidt Easy Flow 9000, Schneider Slider 755 XB refills, Monteverde Gel Ink (Medium)and the Schmidt P8126.
I believe there is no way other than drilling the pen and hoping not to damage it ~

This seems to be some kind of joke. After months and months of waiting .. my add ons are still missing. I should have rather opted for a refund ... then feeling like a fool like this

I’ve just received my carbon and steel pens, they are both fantastic. Thank you Team Bastion.

Review from Kickstarter
It seems I should seek my refund as well. Its been more than 2 months and all I hear is sorry we will send soon.
This is madness. It seems there is serious lack of intention to get this sorted. Rather they are bz promoting and luring people for their new projects.

To proof the wrong delivery in quantities, I kept track of the packages' weigh. This proof Bastion did not fulfil the correct quantity for delivery in my second order (two pens). Packages were sent through SFC First package received on 11 Jan 2018 - 2 stainless steel pen (delivery for item correct). Package weighted 0.315kg Second package received on 2 Apr received on 2 Apr. Quantity was wrong as ordered two pens but only one was sent. Package weighted 0.167kg. Bastion, please refund me for the missing pen. Bastion, you had failed to send me two pens ordered and only sent me one single pen. This wasted my time to track and trace the packages. I won't order from you again.

Review from Kickstarter
Was initially pleased with purchased but delivery for subsequent purchased made was terrible. Wrong quantity sent and response by Bastion was horrible beating around the bush reminding me delivery was already made. I had clearly stated the delivery was made and I received only one pen instead of two purchased. This reminded me not to buy from them again.

Can you help me on short notice? Still need the small screw at the top of the clip as a replacement

Received the pen today. Your shipping agemt is beyond bad. They had the wrong information on the shipping label AGAIN. Thankfully the USPS is competent despite popular opinion.

Yasa Tahir: Schmidt P8126 Capless Rollerball (Fine) Refill doesn't fit. Tried this on the Stainless Steel Pen.
James Mackiewicz
Review from Kickstarter
Yasa Tahir: There must be variables with the pens because I have tried several different refills including the Schneider Slider 755XB and all have fit fine in my pen. Your problem was one of my main worries but I guess I got lucky.

Review from Kickstarter
Count me in on pen tip problems. Montverde P42 works fine, Fisher Space Pen is just slightly too big for the hole. I know some have drilled them, guess i will have to given Bastion’s utter ignoring of this issue by anyone who has asked.

Thanks for the invite to back your latest project; but, maybe consider delivering my pen before asking for more from me.

Review from Kickstarter
Anybody tried to use a different refill? I've consulted one of the updates that listed some of "approved" refills for the bolt pen and bought the Schmidt Easy Flow 9000 and the Schneider Slider 755 XB refills; However none of them fit the Pen. It seems the tip of the refill a bit wide so it doesn't go through the pen head. I was really disappointed.
I've sent a message to bastion about this but didn't get any response. would appreciate if someone can recommend a good refill.

Ok, so, alls good, ants dead, none got inside, and I love the pen. :) I think the cleaning and fumigating killed the bolt sections lubrication, though, as it is super grinds. Is there a way to ge into that part to get some good lithium grease or something? I am hesitant to try to force that end to turn it, as it does not feel like it is meant to. Advice? Is there a maintenance guide somewhere?

Ok, so, I have finally gotten my pen! And as an added bonus, it came with a small exploratory colony of ants! https://bit.ly/2E1oZuJ Haven’t had a chance to play with it as it has been temporarily quarrentined while the Raid does it’s work, but it sure looks nice!

Hi, I have mentioned that I had made a second purchase (re-order) as I was satisfied with the pens received in Jan. Please do not remind me that I should have received the pens. I am querying about the tracking number of the second set of pens which I had ordered.

They made an update full of advertising for other projects and now are not responding when they ASKED HOW THE PENS WERE DOING

Hi, I have made my second purchase. I have not received any tracking number or notification till now. Please help. Thanks.

I received my carbon pens today too! They are very gorgeous and definately worth waiting for. The details of using CNC out of carbon fiber and stainless steel are remarkable precise and flawless.
I think the carbon fiber pens are a perfect balance between elegance and weight.

Hello everyone! We have been working hard to get all replacement pens shipped out over the last 2 weeks. Please check your Kickstarter messages for updates and responses to your inquiries. We are still shipping out replacement pens and we will providing tracking updates as those ship out. Thank you for patience and support!

Pens arrived!! Nice quality, fit and finish. Drop shipped from Hong Kong that explains the delay.

So I went from backer 288 to 6XX when looking at tracking. Well it's only an $80 loss. Once bitten as the song goes.

Still haven’t received the carbon pen I ordered. I got two steal pens instead. When will the carbon pen be shipped? Looks like I’m not the only one that finally got their pens but they were the wrong ones.

Also wondering where my res hip tracking is. Seems people are using inserts fine, so hopefully those were a couple one offs? Planning a Fischer Space in Purple.

Review from Kickstarter
I received a stainless steel pen few weeks ago, but my pledge was a carbon pen.
Few mail but no act.
I would like to know if you refund me, cause the carbon pen is not as the same price.
Jeremy
Review from Kickstarter
Stainless steel arrived in Canada, and I must say the accuracy of the machine you used, WOW. The pen has incredible weight to it, about half in the action and I am loving the imbalance. Twirling a pen between the fingers has never been so awesome. Overall... Very satisfied.
Cheers to a project well done.

On every level you have failed. Timing, delivery, quality, follow through, communication, and customer care. If you think I'm kidding, email me, I'll explain. But it dang well better be a real human being this time.

@Bastian can you please respond to my messages, emails, and comments? You sent me (and another person on Reddit) left handed pens and not the ones advertised.

@jonathan we have sent your updated tracking through Kickstarter messages.
Zack Chua
Review from Kickstarter
My carbon pen arrived today, I am really impressed with the refill that you have chosen to put into your pens. The bolt mechanism gives a satisfying click. The weight of the pen feels like it's made of brass. I do worry about the spring and O ring over the long run, hopefully you will sell the spring and O rings as spares on your website!

Review from Kickstarter
I still haven't had any updated tracking info for the reshipment as you advised my December batch shipment was lost?
For the last 2 weeks I've seen that you intended to ship the replacements that week. When are the reshipments taking place? Thank you.

Products are different than photos. No response to pms. I don't want a left handed pen. Send me a right handed one.
