The older 180 I got had had the tripod mount removed- I got a replacement
from Leica in NJ, but the screws were TOO SHORT! They are 10mm long, and
need to be 12mm or so it seems. Does yours have the tripod mount, and if so,
have you ever removed one or both of the screws? I would dearly love to find
out the exact length  needed.
I called Leica back on this, but Dave Elwell, the parts guy said that those
were the only screws Leica supplied!
Right now, I only hand hold, and I put a piece of , shudder!, Black Tape
over the holes to keep out dust boogers and other detritus.
