    I did buy a few rolls of expired film for cheap and ran it through the camera both with the back open, and with the lens off so I could watch the shutter. Tried all the different speeds and didn't notice anything out of the ordinary. I might try it again a few times.

    You're probably right, but at the same time a local dealer has a freshly CLA'd Leica IIIf for $300, with 6 months warranty. I know all the quirks of using a Barnack camera, and I don't mind. Just figured if I'm going to go $300, might as well give my screws their proper socket. Of course, then I'll need a 35mm viewfinder...
