From what I can tell, there aren't any standard adapters designed to fit the 9300 Mudman. People have gotten creative modifying Suunto clips to fit the G-9000 Mudman, but I have no idea if that would work on the 9300.
According to this one-post thread, the most commonly used Casio adapters don't fit the 9300: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/cor...-a-844995.html
According to this thread, those adapters DO fit, but modification is required: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f17/str...jf-900588.html
That was my understanding too - that there is not a given specific adapter for the G9300 out there and not a factory Casio part either, but that there was an aftermarket one that people were using and then modifying that DID work with some success?
THAT is what I am looking for. That, and a source, and also WHAT model G-shock do the adapters I am looking for fit, that can then be made to also work on the G9300?
For some G-shock models, the "shoulders" of the adapters need to be shaved down a little so that the small part of the adapter can reach deep enough between the lugs to line up the holes. The standard G-shock adapters that are available on ebay are what people mainly use. I put these on a 9300 and I recall it was easier than some other models, but I do think some modifying was necessary to get the adapter to go deeper.
Depending on where you live, they're available through PacParts.com (where they're known as "cover/end pieces"), eBay, CountyComm.com, broadarrow.net, and TimeUp Watches to name a few sources. For WUS members in the UK or Europe, tiktox.com is in the UK and is probably the best bet to save on shipping costs.
I did that, with a standard 5600 adapter and some modification using a sharp knife. But I didn't quite like the looking of it...
I tried the Shapeways (designed by Keoni) adapters on my 9300 Mudman, and they're awesome! Check out the following thread for pics, etc.:
