Who is this John Collier that writes such drivel!

The M1 normally had a 0.72x finder with the 35/50 framelines but it was 
also produced with no finder  like the MD and MDa  for a limited 
special run. The Military version with the 50/135 finder used an M3 top 
plate and a 0.91x finder.

Hound this fiend off the list I say!
