With the late M6's, the baseplate should be replaced with that for the M4-2. And when the M3's were sold new, an annual CLA was strongly recommended though, at this point, these were not easy to arrange in the US -- by the time of the M4, Leitz had managed to put a trained repairman in most American camera stores, so the M4 is more in need of these annual CLA's than is the M3 or M2. Don't fret too much over the RF. I've been using M's for years, and the only RF I had go blonko on me was that on an M4. My M3 RF's have just kept on keeping on, without a problem.
