[Douglas Cooper asked for advice on his worn through M4 lugs]. Douglas, I have had the lugs on an M4 replaced by Leica UK. The original (chrome-plated) brass lugs were worn through by the steel fasteners of the straps I used. My mistake was not using chrome D-rings to attach the straps - - these are kind to brass lugs but steel is not. I had the lugs replaced during a routine service as I was told)the process requires the innards of the cameras to be removed because the new lugs have to be riveted on. My old M4 now sport modern lugs and a modern strap.
