Am I correct in believing that this pen is both "Standard International" (cartridge/converter) and Eyedropper compatible? Any mods required to make it "eyedropper"?

If it's like other F-C pens, then all you need is some silicone grease around the threads of the nib/section and the barrel/section.

Correct, C/C or eyedropper. Just SI grease for eyedropper as stated above.

Thank you. Does the nib section screw in or is it a friction fit?

The nib/feed housing screws into the section. http://www.franklin-christoph.com/fountain-pen-nibs.html

ooh, so it looks like it's extremely easy to swap nibs on F-C pens. Thanks for the great answers, as well as the link for more info :)

Just note which nib size it uses. FC uses #5 and #6 nib units. (This is #6)
