    Junk broken Leica M3 WTB.

    Junk broken Leica M3 WTB.

    Specifically want rangefinder module... (can be "dark" or "blacked out")

    PM me if you have something. This isn't going to be a $100+ transaction.

    Yes JUNK, broken, taped together, glued, run over by a truck or even submerged in the Mississippi, and mistaken for a Nikonos.

    I am just interested in one part in the end.

    I am sure there are more than a few Basket case M3's that a pawn shop/ camera show dude wouldn't bother with giving a c-note for... I am willing to and it doesn't have to be a whole camera. You can keep the top and bottom plates and the take-up spool

    ********the rear half of the prism doublet, (prism with notch cut in it) ***************
    **************or most of the rangefinder unit is what I seek *********************

    I just asked, and I am the market and said what I will pay, ie: what it is worth to me.

    DAG has spare parts for sale, and his web site only shows about 5 percent of his stock. Why not ask him?

    buying a camera of the sort you describe runs the risk of the part you want being damaged.

    I think Leica may even sell M2 spare parts today. I've bought spare parts from DAG for Leica's made in the early 30's.

    Thanks I'll call DAG... cheers..

    --- I know the risks, and I would simply ask for a photo of said part/area of part to confirm---
    I rebuilt a Mazda rotary engine from mail-order junk yard parts... I do this ... it's an affliction I have to not do things the easy way...

    Doing things the easy way all the time gets boring.

    Good luck on the project, let us know how it works out.
