Nice mod alkos!

I had a Leica M6 with an original Leica strap at hand, wanted a wrist strap, but did not want to loose the superior Leica quick release.
I use the Leica wrist strap now with my M6 and my Nikon FM3a (with or without winder). It works beautifully and costs the same as Gordy's straps.
It is not handmade though. To each his/ her own - I like mine ;-)
