Looking for a British locking shoulder

I've posted a WTB in the market, but I though I could increase exposure posting here. I'm looking for a .257 comonwealth locking shoulder. Preferably British. I know its the smallest one the British used.
I have a metric one. But I can get smaller metric ones. I need the British one so I can reduce it 2 thousandths and have a proper L1A1 style LS

Hoping to have the rifle up and running before Christmas.

Thanks

Give The dealers warehouse a call if you haven't already & can't find one here. They have NOS Brit LS's.

Nonetheless you disgust me, and I take comfort in the knowledge that your obituary will be nowhere near as humorous as mine.


The next time I hear "THE RANGE IS NOW HOT", it just wont be the same.

Max tried another question. "What sort of people live about here?"
"In THAT direction," the Jin said, waving its right paw round, "lives a Han: And in THAT direction," waving the other paw, "lives a Ming Hare. Visit either you like: they're both mad."
"But I don't want to go among mad people," Max remarked.
"Oh, you can't help that," said the Jin: "we're all mad here. I'm mad. You're mad."
"How do you know I'm mad?" said Max.
"You must be," said the Jin, "or you wouldn't have come here."

LOL
I might piss some people here off, but one of the things I like about the British L1A1 is that it is the ugliest FAL/L1A1. Aside from the Indian.

Rough cuts, NSN #'s, double struk stamps, no f#@+s given.
