Many thanks to Rick Carter for providing this file.

The M4 was the direct successor of the M3 & M3, with framelines for 35mm,
50mm, 90mm and 135mm lenses in a 0.72 magnification viewfinder.
It had the frame counter of the M3.

Three modifications introduced were (a) a different, angled film advance lever, as well as slightly different rewind, self-timer and frame selection levers, (b) a crank for rewinding the film, that replaced the telescopic knob of the M3 and (c) a faster loading system that did not need a removable spool.  The M4-2 was identical to the M4,but employed simpler production methods to lower costs.
