Gari, my ex-military 5"/4 WA Xpres in barrel won't go into a shutter. My limited experience with UK-made lenses delivered in barrel -- mainly Taylor Hobsons, some Dallmeyers, that WA Xpres, and I have an Aldis Uno coming -- is that they won't easily or inexpensively go into shutters. When attractive lenses sell at low prices, there's often a reason.
