That's an interesting alternative although I'm currently having problems getting any company to reply to my emails asking for a simple CLA let alone electronic mods.

Who did you get to do the mods?

I assume you mean adding some sort of voltage regulator rather than just adjusting the meter calibration.

You can find details to make the modification yourself for some cameras on line (see for example https://www.rangefinderforum.com/classics/forum/messages/6901/2312.html?1080656689). You solder a diode onto the power lead - I’ve never done this although I’ve had a Nikon F modified for 1.5v as part of a repair/service.
