There are plenty of generic 50mm rubber hoods that will work- just make sure they have a 49mm filter thread.

Here's an example: 49mm Collapsible Folding Rubber Lens Hood Sun Shade Screw-in Double Thread Ring | eBay

You can get something really deep. I have sometimes used a hood that's 2 inches deep, meant for the Takumar 135mm f3.5 lens. Something marked for telephoto use is good; the 50mm is a short telephoto on APS-C.

If you happen to have the manual focus version that says SMC Pentax 1:1.4/50 around the front ring, it has a 52mm filter ring. All the other f1.4 50mm Pentax lenses are 49mm.

This is the genuine Pentax collapsing rubber hood. Not too bad at $15.

I have this hood. It works like a Pentax bayonet hood, you can reverse it for lens storage.

@ OP,
FA50 f1.4 (or M, K, F) is a very compact lens and I like to keep it that way. So I went with Soldbear's solution where he used a 49mm to 28mm step down filter which keeps lens compact. If you like you can use a filter in between, I have not experienced any vignetting or any adverse effect of any kind so far.
Here are some link from Soldbear's post

I can vouch for this pentax hood. Very good quality and relatively inexpensive.
