WOW! is right. A couple of years ago Sherry Krauter did complete CLAs  
of two M3s, including shutter blind replacement, replacement of worn  
parts, Vulcanite touch up, replacement of an obsolete film speed dial  
and a defogging and overhaul of a 35 mm  Summaron. for about $550 US.  
If you live in the US, get your Leica work done domestically instead  
of sending it to Solms. The work was of the highest order.
