Vivitar TX adapter for K-mount

I have an old lens with the M42 Adapter that I would like to use as K-mount.

It isn't a very good lens, so I would rather not spend much... maybe in the $20 range.

Unless there's an intriguing lens attached to the adapter, of course... that would expand the possibilities...

I think I have one of these, will check. Which lens do you have to put it on? Is it a genuine Vivitar TX or an earlier T4? (May or may not work on earlier versions.) The TX lenses I have used have been pretty decent lenses.

It's a Gen-u-ine Vivitar 300mm that currently has a screwmount TX on it.

I don't have particularly high hopes, but who knows, maybe the K1 will like it...

If you're actually in Savannah, you're welcome to borrow it...
