Just tried to fit mine last night with your adaptor and failed due to the white collar.

How much of the white collar needs to be cut off, and how to do it without damaging the leather?

Do you have a pic of how it looks installed?

I've made a couple of them from aluminum; it's a simple machining job.
Doug, do you still sell these at all? I need one if you still make them.

Thanks
