Pentax MZ6 - metal gear

Been loving my Mz5 so far but definitely need exposure lock and Aperture priority for my DA lenses. Looking into the mz6 and read that late model MIJ models had a metal gear that prevented the broken mirror problem in the mz series of film Pentax cameras.
Can anyone verify if this is the case for the made in Phippines models also?

Mz5, or Mz6? On the Mz5 you need an aperture ring for aperture priority mode.

oops! Sorry, I was asking with respects to the MZ-6 (MZ-L) and whether it has the metal gear or not if made in the Philippines.
