Jupiter 9 m42 version only close focus on A7

So I got a fantastic looking jupiter 9 in an m42 mount off ebay but when attached to my regular m42 to e mount adapter, it was only able to do close focus, nothing farther than a meter or so.

After some investigating, it seems like I may have gotten a rangefinder version of this lens which needs to be closer to the sensor than m42 slr lenses.

Does anyone have any recommendations or experience on how I could get this lens to work properly? I love how it looks and feels in hand. I tried using one of those cheap super slim m42 to emount adapters but now the lens is too close and still won't focus correctly.
