K-01 + Konica AR lens?

I just got a K-01 and I wanted to use my old Konica Hexagon 50mm f/1.7. However, I could not find a Konica AR to K mount converter. It might be related to the back flange distance?

Yeah, either the lens would become a macro only one or need correctional lenses that reduce quality and changes things.

Konica had the shortest Flange focal distance of any SLR, 40.5mm.

At least some of the Konica lenses can be modded to work on Pentax if you don't mind the time. I'v got a 58mm 1.4 I modded and it even has infinity focus. Not sure if the 50mm 1.7 is moddable though. It would definitely need to have quite a bit of available helicoid adjustment like the 58 and 57mm ones do.
