The lens may be a T-mount lens. IIRC, the T [aka T2] mount is the same diameter as the M42, but the thread pitch is different [I think it's 1 mm for the M42, and 0.75 mm for the T2]

You may already have a T2 to K mount adapter if you have other pre-set or manual diaphragm lenses, slide copiers, etc.
