CRR Luton will restore an existing M3 rangefinder assembly that suffers from separated prisms to "like new".
The rangefinder assembly gets dismantled completely, surfaces are resilvered, recemented,
everything realigned etc. You do not need any spare parts or donor finders for that.
Please read the site that I have linked to in my previous post.
In US dollars the repair seems to be around $400-500. You have to really want the M3/2. If the desire for a M3 is finder magnification, than a 1.25x mag on a .72x finder is similar. I have been shooting with a chrome MP for 10 years and ready for a change. The cheapest black bodies are M4-2s. The only thing I dislike about the MP is protecting it from handling marks. One blemish and there goes $500. Ha!
