Adaptall 2 mount for Ricoh

I am ideally after an Adaptall PK-A mount but baulk at paying 50 for one as I manage this hobby on a very tight budget, however I have seen a mount described as 'Adaptall 2 mount for Ricoh PK' which appears to have more going on [in terms of contacts etc] than the basic PK-M mount but yet doesn't look like a PK-A mount. Does anyone know if this has auto metering and whether it can be adapted for Pentax use [I know Ricoh lens mounts need a bit of fiddling with]. I have also seen some DIY efforts to convert a PK-M to a PK-A mount, but I think that's a bit beyond me. Many thanks Gary

I have a PK-A mount you can have for a little cheaper than 50. It has a problem in that the contacts don't quite line up correctly and so it wont auto meter etc but if you move it back slightly (just before the click when the lens locks on the body) then it's fine. It's usable like that or if you are mechanically minded it may well be correctable.

I'm up for a bit of DIY - within reason - and I would be interested in your offer. Let me know what figure you have in mind. I'll also keep an eye on this thread in case someone comes up with a wonder-solution on the Ricoh mount. You just never know.

I reckon 30 delivered would be fair?

That seems very reasonable - thank you. Perhaps you could PM me with how you would like to be paid.

Received today and seems to work OK - using with a Tamron 28mm f2.5 which I'm looking forward to trying out.
Many thanks Mike for the item and the prompt posting. Much appreciated. Gary
