Soligor 37-105, f3.5 zoom-macro MC

Does anyone have any info on this lens? There is one at my local thrift store and I am wondering if it is worth taking a chance. It looked to be in pretty good shape and was attached to a Pentax MX (i think...i only had a couple of minutes to look) Any info would be appreciated. Thanks.

I had one in Konica mount a long time ago. Wasn't that good. It was soft and lacked contrast. I don't think I shot more than 25 pics with it.

If it's the same as this one -

Soligor MC Zoom Auto F2 5 3 5 F 35 70mm Camera Lens Macro POS Hoya UV Filter | eBay

with a serial number starting with 9 then it's almost certain it's a Kino / Kiron made lens and they weren't bad, it's a typical decent quality, but still budget compared to oem glass, zoom of its day. Well built but heavy and robust, good glass, multi coated.
