It came back and sounded ok, but I brought the camera to a local repair shop where I know the owner, and he put it on his fancy Shutter Tester and it was more like 1/6, whereas my other Leicas that were overhauled by Don G. or Sherry were within a few milliseconds of the marked speeds (i.e. as good as that kind of shutter gets). Leica USA's service is the reason I'm ambivalent about buying "official USA" Leica equipment.
