I cannot seem to find an adapter. Is it possible, are there adapters?

I did a quick google search and found plenty of Arri B to BNCR adapters:

PL to BNCR is harder because the outer dimensions of a PL mount are too close to that of a BNCR mount.

are there any NIKON TO BNCR mount lenses that allow the use of STILL lenses with the BNCR mount or is this just wishful thinking on my end?

I have also had a hard time finding good options for BNCR mount adapters. BNCR lenses are out of my price range.

 

The Arri Standard/B mount adapters sit too deep in the mount which makes f-stop adjustment and focusing awkward. It seems like the flange focal distance of the BNCR makes adapting lenses (other than some medium format lenses) difficult. 

 

I've also been considering changing the hard front to PL, but aside from Les, I'm not sure who still does that. I need to check and see if Du-All Camera in NYC still offers that.

 

Any advice/ info/ or suggestions that other people may have would be welcome.
