Default Connector trouble

Hi everyone

I need a female Tamiya to a 4mm gold plated bullet connector.
Iv been looking online for hours but cant find one anywhere other than ebay in australia! Its like they dont exsist this side of the world.
Can anyone please help me and advise me where i can purchase one of these online in the UK.
I know i could make one but i would much rather buy a premade adapter.

Thank you very much for any help

Thanx but thats not it. Wish it was that easy to find.
It needs to have a female Tamiya connector one end, and 4mm bullet the other end.

Thats a deans isnt it? Unless deans fit tamiya? I am new to this. And the bullet connector is the wrong type. I need the type that is incased in plastic. Usually the postitive is male and the negative is female and vise verser. Alot of lipo batteries have them.

Thanx anyway

Oops sorry reading comprehension fail. You're not doing yourself any favours by using a Tamiya connector though.

I'd just cut off the tamiya and solder on a deans plug
