E mount adapter for a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 2.8/50?

I have a Schneider-Kreuznach Xenar 2.8/50 from my father's 1950's Braun Super Paxette rangefinder. I understand the lens is quite sharp and gives great colors and bokeh. I would like to find a way to adapt it to my a6000.

The research I have done tells me this: "The Paxette lenses had a M39 screw mount mechanically compatible to the Leica M39 screw mount (Leica thread mount, LTM), but the flange focal distance differs, because the leaf shutter needs more space than a focal plane shutter, so the Paxette lenses are not interchangeable with the Leica lenses."

So I think that a LTM adapter won't work and I doubt there is an adapter specifically for the lens, but maybe there is some spacer available to adapt a LTM adapter to this lens?

Any Ideas?
