Yep. I have a stack of Gyromite games that had those (official, Nintendo-built) Famicom adaptors inside of them. I used one to hook up my Dragon Quest IV cart. (AWESOME RPG, hope you like Katakana and Hiragana. :) )
If anyone is looking for one of these adaptors, I could try to find my stash somewhere in the basement. The cost would be very reasonable. I think I have about 5 or 6 of them left.
