Looking for filter holder, 600mm

I have a Pentax-A 600mm F5.6 (green star) lens that does not have a filter holder, I bought it that way thinking a replacement would be no big deal. 6 months later I still do not have one. Any assistance or recommendations would be greatly appreciated! TIA

My suggestion would be to find one to borrow and have a 3d print file created to allow you to make a few.

Try BomBo Photo on eBay. If you don't see it, he might make one. Good guy. Top notch products.

Have you tried posting on the 300mm plus lens club? They might be able to help

It is the same holder that is in the A*300/2.8 (and maybe others) if that helps. If you can find anyone to make one, see if they can improve it by including a spinner dial to rotate a circular polarizer (like the FA*s) -- I've been meaning to figure that out. (BTW, the lens shoots just fine without a filter, so you can probably still use it ok just with something light-blocking taped over the hole.)
