Much appreciated

You can adapt most SLR lenses to M-bayonet lens mount successfully. HOWEVER, you will not have any focus coupling to the rangefinder: you'll have to guess the correct focus setting.

I recommend looking for a Rayqual lens mount adapter. The Rayqual adapters have a neat trick in them—they have a cam which sets the rangefinder mechanism to indicate 3m focus distance, which gives you a well-defined reference for estimating the correct focus setting.
