I can do you an LX M581 for as I've upgraded bike t0 XT Shadow, it has recent new jockey wheels and is very clean.

One slight issue though, the pin on the outer plate that stops the mech from twanging back if the chain snaps is missing. I've ridden it like this for miles with no issues however and it works like a charm.

Could be very tempted by that. Is the pin the chain tension thing that screws to press on the mech hanger?

no it's the pin that stops the cage springing back when there's no chain fitted, on older mechs they generally screw in but on more modern ones they are pressed into the outer cage plate, and at some point it has sheared off (must have been due to chain snapping - I bought and used it like this)
