would this be a good buy

I bumped ito the following on ebay: 300/600/1000mm Tele Lens DIGI Pentax Canon EOS 20 -400D on eBay, also To Fit Canon, For 35mm SLR, Camera Lenses, Photography (end time 06-Jun-09 19:00:00 BST)

having just bought an smc DA 55-300 mm lens I don't think I'd having anything to gain from this kit unless the lens is of good quality, are photax good lenses ? bearing in mind this is an old manual lens

I doubt it's anywhere close to the DA 55-300, with no automation either.

I think you would be much better served with a 300mm F4, any of the Tak (M42) or K mounts

well I have the smc DA 55-300 so I think theres probably no point as the optics of that one won't be much good with a teleconverter attached
