The plastic tip on the wind lever on my M4 got extremely cold, then whacked, and has just disintigrated. There are many pieces. The little screw is still there. There is no putting the thing back together that I can see. So....my question is can this little part be found? and if so, can someone as inept as I tend to be replace it?
I know I can always send the old gal off to someone but if this is doable I would like to try it. The camera is still useable, of course, just not very comfortable.

Don Goldberg at DAG Camera - http://www.dagcamera.com/leica_m.htm. Don't see it, give him a call or you can order one from Leica.....or even get an all metal wind lever.

Or get one from Sherry K. Or you could just get the whole lever, for which you need a special (inexpensive) tool to install - but it's very easy. Or you could get the solid metal older style.

get a m3 type lever instead. Works much better IMHO.
