I think the rings that came with my Leica strap are damaged. They're not supposed to be bent like this, right? Any idea where I can grab replacements? Thanks!

No, they're exactly as they should be. I assume they're designed to minimise the rubbing of the strap against the camera top plate. They have to be fitted the right way round though - see page 6 of the M6 instruction manual:

Hi,

In your shoes I'd just bend it back and move on.

I doubt if you can buy a replacement part and would need to buy the entire strap.

No, they really are supposed to be that shape - see second post in the thread.
