The socket in the case is not as deep.  I mentioned this to Joseph a few 
weeks ago when I noticed his quick release plate did not fit right on the 
M7.  I suggested he use a shorter screw.  As for my plate, I took the screw 
out and filed a few millimeters off.  Works fine now.

I wonder if the original poster was referring to a Leica brand grip or a 
third party grip?  It would be odd for Leica to miss this.  I was just 
using the M7 with an old Leica flash bracket and the screw on this bracket 
was not too long.
