Which lens mount is this Soligor?

I came across a Soligor C/D 135mm 2.8 and I'm not sure which mount type it is.

Thanks for your time!

That's what I was thinking, but I'm not sure.

If I need to take more pictures of the lens, let me know.

Definitely Minolta MD mount.

Thanks! Are there any off brand adapters that are actually worth it? I know the IQ is degraded because they're basically teleconverters and I'd rather not operate on the lens.

The mount seems easy to replace. I used to unscrew the mount, replace with a pentax mount from a cheap/defective tube or TC. You may have to drill new holes, but the triangle position is very common.

If you want to mod, keep the aparture in one position and mark the mount and the lens barrel, so you can reassembled without problem. These lenses are thrid parties, they should have no complicated issues to adapt to other mount.

True information above. M/MD means Minolta MC|MD mount, register is 43.7mm vs the Pentax 45.46mm. The base should be easy to replace, without serious implications. Adjusting infinity focus might be fun. Enjoy!

I'll try to do some surgery on it this weekend, then!
