The advice from a friend who is more up on the 99 than I am is to try and find a trashed .303 that still has a good cartridge carrier, and buy it for the parts.

Otherwise good luck finding a .303 carrier. He told me that #1, Savage didn't make .303s after WWII, and that a .30-30 carrier probably wouldn't work right. He told me about a fellow that tried to restore a .303, with a .30-30 carrier, and only got it to work when he rebarreled the rifle to .30-30.

The other point he made was what would it take to legally send the part to England, IF we could find one????
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
