Tom Abrahamsson of RapidWinder.com It is almost never that an inventor improves on a Leica product so that it is better than the original Leica product. Tom holds that distinction with his RapidWinder for Leica M rangefinders -- a bottom mounting baseplate trigger advance. In addition Tom manufacturers other Leica accessories such as his very popular Soft Release and MiniSoftRelease shutter releases. Tom is well known as one of the true Leica rangefinder experts, even by Leica. IMPORTANT READ THIS: CWE Forum hosts have moderation powers within their forum.

Silver RAPIDWINDER II - Only for M2?

I'm a little confused regarding my 'Silver' RAPIDWINDER II because researching the various RAPIDWINDER models released over the years suggests that 'Silver' were intended for the M2 only. My 'Silver' RAPIDWINDER II fits my M6 and M6 TTL and functions perfectly. Is the 'Silver' a scarce version and is it OK to continue using it on the M6 TTL?

Thanks for reading

I have a silver Rapidwinder II and use it on my M6TTl. It may be that the ones made for the M2 only came in silver, but there were silver Rapidwinder IIs for the M4-2 and following models.

The Rapidwinder II was made in many finishes, both for the M6 and M2.

Likewise the M2 Rapidwinder II was also made in chrome and black paint.
