You lucked out. Model Ms aren't so common over there in the UK, there's a lot up in Scotland because IBM used to have a plant there, but they aren't nearly as common as they are over here.



I think this summer when I'm visiting my dad I'm going to see if we can dig up a non-functioning Model M and take it to the target range to see if it really can stop a bullet. We'll try, say... .22LR, .32ACP, and 9mm Makarov.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL THIS KEYBOARD IS SOOOOO LOUDDDDD

I just unboxed it!!! I just started typing this post and my roommate looked over at me like he was going to KILL ME when he first heard it LOL. I don't know which keyboard I like better yet. I'm leaning towards the rocketfish bluetooth. The keys on this M1 require a lot more effort than the keys on the rocketfish.

These keys wobble around, whereas my other keyboard's keys stay in place while traveling.

You'd probably be happier with a softer key such as the Cherry MX Browns or Blues (but you probably wouldn't like the clicking of the Blues)

The keys wobble because of the quality. It's a great keyboard, but it's not the same quality as that of a filco (or something else)

Chatch: just to clarify the click of the Cherry MX Blues: it sounds similar to the click of a nice retractable pen, but quieter. So in other words, the sound of the keys bottoming out (which is what you are experiencing) is easily louder than the click of the Cherry MX Blues.
