Take a look at eBay 320557104791. The seller offers M DIY replacement 
rings that have the 6bit. They're filled in with white, so just add 
black to the appropriate bits. They're for the 28-90 framelines, but a 
little Dremel work will convert them to either of the other frameline 
pairs. Seller also offers LTM - M adapters with 6bit. Modest prices. 

I'm using four of the M-lens rings and they work fine.
