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????
