     I had sticky frames in my M4-P. It cost me $125 to have Don Goldberg 
     fix it (he's very good, and it took him 2 tries to do it!)
     This may open up the old debate reagrading whether or not M4-2's & 
     M4-P's are of lower build quality than M6's, and all of these aren't 
     as well built as earlier M's. We could also talk about steel gears 
     versus brass, zinc bodies versus brass, Canada versus Wetzlar versus 
     Or we could go and make photographs instead.

     Hi Harold,
     Not knowing where you are in the world, USA - Canada or what country, 
     here are a couple of things:
     1/  I've never encountered your frameline sticking at any time nor 
     have I heard of it. I have had at most times in hand as working 
     cameras, three M4's, M4p's or now 3 M6's and none have given me any 
     thing along these conditions. If you are in the USA I'd send it to 
     Leica Camera Inc in Northvale, New Jersey and ask that Ernst Hartmann 
     look at it.

     Northvale, NJ 07647
     2/ If you are in Canada, send it to:  
     Kinndermann (Canada) Inc.
     361 Steelcase Road, Unit 3,
     Markham, ON  L3R 3V8
     PH.# 905-940-9262
     The final option:  trade it in before you spend anymore money on it 
     and get the M6.  you wont be sorry, as it is a more efficient camera 
     because of the internal meter.
