Minolta 50mm Macro F3.5, different MD mount?? What adapter are you guys using?

do you have to "fight" with fitting the lens?

I also have a HK/ebay adapter for MD and also having issues with it - first of all it is quite hard to fit the lens, I have to fiddle with the position and use a relative amount of force to push the lens into the adapter (there are no issues with the E-mount side of the adapter). I have a 50mm f2 MD and 135mm f3.5 MD and it's the same for both. I played around with the aforementioned screw to see if that makes any difference but it doesn't.

Would that mean that the adapter is minimally too small? I know the adapters are cheap but if the next one is the same... Are the "branded" ones (like fotodiox, metabones, etc) any better really?

Also, the space between fitted lens and adapter on top is bigger than on the bottom (small, but noticeable difference). Do you think that affects optical performance?
