RegExp Money Validator

I have been messing around with it, but I can't seem to come up with a working validator. This shouldn't be too hard. I just need it to validate an entry of money in millions. (MUST be in millions.)

The format is this:  124.5 M or 124.5M

It needs to allow up to 3 digits, then REQUIRES a decimal and REQUIRES one digit after the decimal, and then a space is OPTIONAL (needs to accept both ways). All of this is followed by a REQUIRED 'M'

If someone could help me out with this, i'd really appreciate it. It's a nagging task...

Hmm - I just tested it again, and found that that RegExp doesn't accept 2 and 1 digits which it should.

EXP:

234.0M Passes
23.4M fails
2.3M fails

100.0M passes
10.0M fails
1.0M Fails

ETC...

Suggestions?
