I have a Graflex XL camera that uses a Polaroid back with an attachment (Bsi inc. LA-97 Model G) that locks onto the camera back (Graflex | General Precision). The polaroid back is a Polaroid Land Camera Back, so it might have been a conversion deal before I purchased the camera back when. I'm not sure. I just bought the RH10 120 film back but it doesn't fit onto the back of the camera. I have a few questions...

1) If there was a conversion done to the camera in order to fit the Polaroid Land Camera back, would I be able to unscrew something that would allow the RH10 120 film back to fit?

2) Do I need to buy a back that would fit the RH10 film back?

3) Any suggestions on film backs that would fit the my Graflex XL camera already compatible and ready to go?

4) Any solutions?

Here are a couple images to show the rear of the Polaroid back and the rear of the camera where it attaches...

At the very least, you need the XL Graflok back shown on page 13 of the above cited manual. That part will enable you to attach your roll back.

I was able to locate the piece that I needed in order to fit the 120 film back on ebay. Got it for 30 bucks! It finally arrived today and fit the film back perfectly on my Graflex XL. Am very happy and appreciate all your replies that helped guide me towards finding what I needed.
