Genuine Pentax M42 to K mount adapter

I'm looking for a genuine Pentax M42 to K mount adapter. I know I can get it at B&H, but they're asking $60, and Amazon is about the same. If I have to pay that, I will (I really like the older Takumar lenses, and plan to use the adapter often), but I was hoping that perhaps someone had one they were looking to get rid of.

I had a bad experience with a third party adapter off of Amazon (took me 15 minutes to get it off the camera body, and I promptly threw it away), so I'm definitely looking for the genuine article this time around.

Thanks for reading!

In 2008 I bought a third party one for $26CAN which was junk and shortly thereafter one from Pentax direct for $36CAN which I still use. This is crazy, it must be because of the K1 arrival, everybody now wants those M42 lenses...!

In my case, I just bought a K-S2 and love the quality and "bang for the buck" of the older lenses.
