Is it possible to get an adaptor which will allow such a lens to focus to infinity without any optics?

Depends on the mounts involved; M42 can mount on almost anything with infinity focus, Leica M cannot on any SLR (though it can on most mirrorless systems), and so on. Google is often your friend in this, but you can always ask, as well.

Either way, can anyone recommend a good brand?

Again, depends on the mounts involved. Though I've heard Fotodiox are pretty good, for the brands they work with.
