Hi, greetings to all, I am new here.
I got a used lens with a Minolta mount, seemingly not an adapter on a M42. The mount is not good and I want to attach a Nikon mount. On description of the lens it says that they have interchangeable backs so I assume it is delivered with the Minolta mount from the beginning.
How can I attach a new mount without an adapter (wobbely) for Nikon F to attach the F4s (like the weight of the combination).
If possible, where can I get an appropriate back?
Thanks folks

Hi and welcome!
There are 3 screws around the mount. If you unscrew them, you will be able the remove the mount.
For a Nikon F mount, look for "KP A/N" mount on eBay. You can find them for around 15$.

Btw, it's ZM-5A, not 3M-5A. Зз is Z in Russian.

As the name implies (ZM-5A) there is na "A" mount at rear verey similar to "T" mount bur without the inner screw ring.
The adapter is hold by three small screws around the adapter ring
