It looks like an older M400 (could be a 400N).

Cannot see the blins cap completely, but It looks like it's squared off.
The 400NN models were more streamlined (rounded).

How about a nib pic DWL?

The nib is incorrect, but it looks like a B/BB & flexi. The misalignment is a nothing for me to adjust.

the Conway Stewart is a 286 model. This is what I could find on it.

A Conway Stewart 286 fountain pen. The model 286 was introduced by the Conway Stewart Pen company in the early 1930s being one of only five different types of fountain pen models that were manufactured by the company during the years of World War II. By 1943 the shop retailers price for this pen was a costly 15 Shillings. Production of this model had ceased by 1950.
Coloured in varied shades of mottled blue pearl with black. Ink filling is by side lever method a new rubber ink sac has been fitted. The Conway Stewart 14 carat gold fine point size nib is in good condition. A pen ideally suited for daily use as well as being a very collectible fountain pen

with a little looking, I found out the CS 286 is 12.9cm long, so right at 5". The pelikan looks a little larger so maybe a 600?

Could be, or an older 400 like I mentioned before.
The 400N was made in the 50's.

The good thing is (should be), you should be able to "unscrew" this nib, and replace it with a Pelikan Nib. The modern standard nibs will fit 2xx/4xx/6xx pens.
