Kipon 645 to K adapter

I've been looking for a while and cannot seem to find one the genuine Pentax Adapter K for 645 lenses and was considering a 3rd party version. For those whom have used the Kipon, what is the quality of the machining? For the +/-$130 on eBay I assume it must be decent. I've heard various accounts of flare from the glossy paint on the interior of Kipon adapters as well, has anyone here experienced this? It will be used with the 645 A*300mm/4.

I have the Kipon adapter 645 to Nikon F, and it is about 1mm too thick, no focus to infinite. I've never been using it, the company is not answering my mails.
This doen't mean it has to be the same for Pentax K, but if I were you, I'd buy this adapter only in a shop allowing you to try the focus to infinite before buying.
