Not all Model M's are mechanical
If you're looking for a classic mechanical IBM keyboard, with the famously clicky buckling-spring switches under each key, you should be aware that Model M's whose labels show a "part no." starting with 6 or 7 (e.g. 60G0817, 71G4634) are the "quieter" rubber-dome (RD) versions, which IBM made for places where the regular Model M's clicky chatter would be too intrusive. By nature, rubber domes aren't as long-lasting as mechanical switches. So while it's common to find 20- to 30-year-old mechanical M's that still work and feel as well as ever, an RD version that was used long and hard may have lost some of its responsiveness. That said, RD Model M's are the best non-mechanical boards ever made. They have the same heavy-duty construction and permanently printed keys as regular M's, and IBM's rubber domes were as durable as they could make them. So if you plan to type where a standard M's noise may be a problem, an RD version may actually be a better idea. It'll still be "clicky" (especially compared to today's cheap, short-lived membrane boards). And you'll get the same classic look, and _most_ of the feel of a standard M. Also, since RD Model M's don't have the same collector's value as standard M's, you can expect to pay considerably less for one (about 50% as much, as I write this). Many sellers don't realize their boards are RD versions, so feel free to point that out. And before you buy, be sure to confirm it's in good condition, and that you can return it if it doesn't feel right to you. Good luck!

Not the "clicky keys" version
My old IT guy gave me an ancient IBM Model M with the buckling spring (clicky) keys from 1987 and I LOVE it. I went searching for another and ordered this. No criticism to the seller but this is an early membrane version w/o the buckling springs that push your fingers back. These keys are slow to snap back. I should have done further research.
