Adapting Altix lenses to Pentax K using an M42 adapter

I found a photo showing the camera with lens removed and you are correct. The Altix had a breech-lock mount with the lens placed forward of a leaf shutter. The lens registration appears to be at the edge of the rim above the silver index pin rather than at the flange by the focus ring. That makes me wonder if a flanged adapter might have worked for this conversion.

(...am sort of wishing that I had an Altix camera...they look rather elegant...)

My question as well. A full conversion to allow infinity focus would require some internal adjustment and/or milling down the lens flange several millimeters.
