Pentax M42 adapter for Mir 24-H 35/2?

I purchased this Mir 24-H 35/2 lens from a Russian seller.

Itís in beautiful condition, but I should have looked more closely at his photos. It was advertised as Pentax M42 mount, but the aperture ring has a couple of flanges on it that prevent the lens from screwing down completely.

You can see the two flanges on the rear photo ó a short tab flange and a longer flange to the left of it.

Is there a Pentax M42 adapter that will accommodate this, or should I just file down the flanges?
