Using the same link below at Amazon, the current price is $25.50, free shipping. Maybe the reseller is not authorized by Regal, but the order is fulfilled by Amazon, meaning you can return it. IMHO that is better than a warranty for a pen at this price. Do you really want to make a warranty claim on a $30 pen? I am not dissing MD here, but Regal. Perhaps @RayF is right about getting a Jinhao all along, and my original impression about value for money is no longer true.

I just picked the orange one up for $17 on eBay because I am not worried about packaging or warranty on a pen of this price.

Although the dragon may had been “a traditional symbol for power and confidence”, (although I cannot find any reference to that) the dragon depicted on this pen is in Chinese style. Note the shape of the clouds.

Oh-very Regal, but British? Not so much! I’m a big fan of cheap Chinese pens, but only when they‘re actually cheap!

I checked them out at the local pen show, and the higher end ones are better made than most of Jinhao’s models, writes pretty well, too. You do get your value for money. The problem I have is that I really dislike their logo, and I do not find the styling attractive. The higher priced ones are not as bad, but I can think of a few other pens I would buy before these. With pens like PenBBS, Moonman etc. coming out with interesting designs, I’m not sure if I will ever get to Regal.

Agreed. These are "Crow-Pens" --the manufacturer knows Crows can't resist bright/shinny objects! Very much agree with you about PenBBS and Moonman. Both prove that creative, well engineered pens don't have to be expensive. I really wish those were the kinds of fountain pens first-time users were exposed to vs some of the gift shop sludge that ends up here.

I received my pen today and the section is stuck inside the cap. If I just pulled (this is supposed to be a snap cap) the body pops off. If I try to unscrew it, the front, including threads, is still in the cap. What the hell? I guess my next step is to find something to grip the threads and pull. EDIT: I managed to pull it out of the cap this time. I can now see the nib and it isn't lined up with the feed.

What ink would I need to refill it, and how exactly do I refill it? I would like to bookmark the page for it so I can order some when needed.

Hello @JustFluxz,
Your questions are fundamental to the fountain pen world. For this type of pen, known as "cartridge/converter," there are two ways to fill it. One is through standard international short ink cartridges, of which I believe 2 come with the pen. They are easy to install. You can buy them in any number of ink colors through any number of vendors, including amazon; just remember that the standard international short variety is what will fit this pen.
The second way is through use of a "converter," a small piston operated device through which ink is drawn up through the nib of the pen, stored in the converter, and delivered through the pen's feed while writing. This requires a bit more thought than just installing a cartridge, because you have to obtain bottled ink. This, of course, is the fun part for many of us fountain pen enthusiasts, but may or may not be to your taste. As for operating the converter, this is easy: go to YouTube and search "using a fountain pen converter" for a tutorial.
Hope this helps!

What is the converter used for?

Bottled ink as opposed to cartridges. Bottled ink comes in a wider variety of colors, and if you care about such things, there's also less waste.

I'm searching everywhere I can, but I can't find anyone online who even mentions it. Does anybody have any idea if these nibs are lefty-friendly?

Ah! Never having had that experience myself, I can say it sounds horrible lol. But modern fountain pens do seem to be lefty friendly for the most part. I did attempt to get a pen with a special lefty grind (reverse non italic oblique) and found that it is no better to write with for me than a standard nib.

I"m a lefty and I've never had a problem. That being said, I underwrite pretty sharply so my hand never drags across what I've just written but I've found many lefties either underwrite or overwrite as we get tired of smudging pencil or even ballpoint pen ink. I've never found any problem with a nib though.
