I hesitate to say this, because it will incite Leicaphiles to violence, but I fixed the shutter curtain on my old M-4 using some kind of black "liquid rubber" found in a hardware store and thinned with lighter fluid. The repair lasted more than 10 years, when I sold the camera to another photog. Last I knew he was still using the camera with no problems.
