Sasquatch lens?

In a local for-sale listing is a 'Kalimar 800-1200 for Pentax K-mount film cameras'. Does this exist? I can find nothing about it, nor is the seller available this weekend.

Should I grab it ASAP or what?

If anyone knows anything about this item, I'd appreciate it.

One sold here, images are missing.

Another, with pictures here.

One on Ebay here.

It's not highly regarded, and it's very slow (f./9.9-14.9). Still, might be fun if you can get it cheap. That's some insane reach it's got.
