As a newish LUGer and and even newer LHSA member, I wonder what the chances
of having vulcanite used as a body covering rather than the usual
'cheapanite' normally used on the M6. It seems to me that a black enamel M6
with vulcanite would be an absolute dream for both collector and user alike
and should not make production costs prohibitive.
