    M3 recent CLA - with 35mm Summaron and M3 eyes
    -------User quality M3 ** SINGLE STROKE***
    ---repost of my closed thread with wrong title---

    Just the facts --- I like SLR's best.

    I ran some film in the past few months, it works nicely, exposures are even edge to edge.

    With decent clean 35mm f3.5. Eyes have a scratch and it is visible in view/ but not too distracting.

    Patch works great. Get a russian LTM for your 50mm .. I think Leica 50's are too expensive in any condition.

    This is equipped with a quick load spool option... still cut the leader.
    Photos tell the story and I point out all major blems.

    Well used M3, did many tasks at the local camera shop (was a Leica dealer into the early 1980's)...
    ...... spent the last 2-decades on the copy stand.

    Set in working order, just add strap and Tri-X.

    $995.... shipped FED Ex ground on me.... unless you want it faster.

    ... I have pointed out many use/age marks in finish, this Leica has been making photos off and on since about 1958 and it shows.
    CLA has it in shape for another useful decade.

    I'll toss in a M to thread adapter and a nice 50 ( modern elmar clone_) from FedKa.

    I have a Leica Lens cap for the 35mm I just put in the deal.

    bump... I'll take $900. But it is snowing, and I think I'll load a roll and go for a walk.
    Someone asked what else will you trade it for? A 8' pool table, compact pickup. gold, silver, a surgeon or chiropracter that can fix my pinched nerves.
    Cheers.
