Shutter drum leica m2 replacement

Hi fellow leicofiles,

I've been using my Leica M2 with great pleasure and enthusiasm, but it broke on me a year ago. I took it to a repairman and he told me basically that the shutter curtains needed to be replaced. After a while he notified me saying that the shutter drum is broken and needs to be replaced.

Did any of you have this problem before with the Leica M cameras? What did you do about and can you also tell me how much this shutter drum costs?

Kind regards,

Your fellow leicofile

Not sure where are locate, if I need Leica repair, always DAG. I do not send to tech without parts or experience.

Zuzu, where do you live? People can give you recommendations closer to home.

Never heard of the shutter drum breaking but I guess it can. Curtains needing replacement isn’t uncommon

I live in the Netherlands. That would be nice indeed. But nobody had any issues with the shutter drum?

There is a user in this forum called Erik Van Straten - he might know someone in Netherlands as he is having some of his own Leicas serviced.

Alternatively - Cameraworks are the experts in UK. Their website is here: https://www.cameraworks-uk.com/
