HKB 1/980 Langesund had a 7,5cm Gun, but I don't know if it was PAK gun though..
From an intelligence report (which I believe I sent a copy to you Erik)
7,5cm Pak seems to have been very unusual in coastal batteries in Norway. There are a few more found in the strongpoints around harbours and important road junctions, but all in all the smaller PAK from 3,7 to 50 cm are much more common. As for antitank guns in coastal batteries, the 5cm KwK is definately the most common up here.
In coastal batteries, these "medium guns" are often called Landesabwehrgeschütz "LAG") which is pretty hard to translate . Anyway, these guns are usually old light fieldartillery, or even guns which were taken from captured ships etc.
