After a Browning A4 Booster (End of the Barrel) to convert Browning A6 to A4 for vehicle mounted operations.

Easy enough to get Stateside, however has anyone got any leads to one here in the UK.

30 CAL if possible, but repro and 7.62 would be considered.

You missed one on ebay last week. Why do you want to convert a very sought after A6 to A4 spec? Also there are 2 versions, I assume your not fussed, 1st version is for the M1 and 2nd for the M2 ammo. I cant remember if the Taper booster is M1 or if its the stepped booster. Have you also checked your A6 booster can be removed as the one on my old A6 was welded on as per late Deac regs.
