    Pretty hard to find nowadays. One way, not the cheapest, is to pick up an Omark with one fitted and with a nackered barrel and hopefully a price that reflects.
    Try Mike Collings. You may be lucky, he may have one from Din's estate.

    These guys make adaptors Total Solutions Engineering - TS Engineering - Everton Hills
    They also make complete OMARK M44s.
    They used to be called MAB Barrels.
    I quickly looked in their website but it wasn't particularly easy to get around. Plus I imagine the part would not be cheap and then there is the hassle of getting it out of Oz.
    A mate made one out of a worn out barrel. I read somewhere that it is not very recommended. Will go looking for the link.
    Yep, saw your trigger photo, bit tiny looks like an aftermarket Rem 700 trigger although it may also be the last model OMARK trigger made one of which I have seen but didn't take much notice of. Or a NZ made "KIWI".
    If you go into the TSE website they refer to an exploded diagram. If you can find that you may see an image of your trigger.
    I have a coupe of mates I can ask about adaptors but the chances are virtually zilch so don't get your hopes raised.

    Best option is to pick up a rifle at one of teds auctions with a shot out barrel. look for one with a stainless barrell fitted as it's a dead giveaway. Getting one made out of a barrel is not recommended.

    This is the original Omark setup with the recoil lug screwed between the barrel and the action.

    This shows a barrel adaptor fitted. It is much longer than the original recoil lug and has its own integral recoil lug.
    The giveaway here is the stainless barrel fitted.
