OK Richard, thank you, that coincides 100% with my description, I only was not 
sure about the external thread would accept a Leica cable release too. MX came 
from factory provided with the Deckel/Compur or "universal" cable release 
thread used up to today for electronic cameras, whatever the shutter brand.
Perhaps it would easier today to obtain the Leica type cable release than the 
dedicated piece for the universal thread cable release.-
