    I've been scouring the internet looking for a click pen kit that can take a rollerball cartridge.
    Anyone know if a kit exists, or how a standard click pen kit can be modified to accomplish that?

    No, it does not exist. Because the rollerball cartridge will dry out. It needs the cap to prevent that. What Ken linked above is just a ballpoint kit. If you want to get as close to a rollerball style of writing with a ballpoint kit, swap out the refill for a Schmidt Easyflow 9000. It's the only refill I will use in my personal ballpoint pens and it writes quite smoothly.

    Sorry about that. Somehow what I searched for and what showed up changed and I failed to notice that.

    My apologies.

    It happens - and I'll blame it on PSI's site, it's awful, lol.
