Pentax M42 adapter - Out of Stock

I lost an auction on an original adapter. Pentax has them listed as out of stock. Is this common? Will they likely get more? I don't want to pay the markups on ebay, but there must be a reason why the adapters are going for so much there.

They go out of stock on a regular basis. When I purchased my first one they were currently out of stock. But I ordered it anyway and received it as soon as they got them restocked.

Fleabay's price on this item seems to skyrocket recently.

Just got mine a week ago from a fellow selling 'old lens stuff'. Used, off course, but seems been used slightly. Just plain luck, I guess. Got it in a lot of Hoya 49mm filters & hoods, cost something like $30.
