Subject: [Leica] Shoulder stock

I don't think all the shoulder stocks made for the 400/6.8 attach the same
way. There were five different stocks including a prototype made from
1968-70. The one made from 1984-1995 (?) looks very different. The rest look
roughly the same. ShouThe one I have (circa 1980) attaches with a round head
bold about 2" long with a hex head that needs an allen wrench to turn it. It
fits into a threaded piece (which looks removable) inside the connecting
tube. Unfortunately, the information I have on the stock does not show a
breakdown of the parts and has no part numbers for the components.  I could
provide you with a more detailed description of the bolt, but no part

I recently purchased a shoulder stock (the old type) meant for the Telyt

I could not find the screw/device that connect the extension rod to the
curved shoulder rest.

Does anyone know what that screw/device is called (code no.?) so that I
can get back to the seller to locate one for me?

Thank you very much.
