Is that NNK on the lens?

Anyway, my totally uninformed guess
would be that it's an Albinar.

Compare this listing:

Albinar f/3.9 ADG MC 80-200 MacroZoom KA Pentax (#11) | eBay

Does your lens look like the picture there?

I've had a number of 80-200 zooms at f/3.9-4, including a couple badged as Albinar, and others as Sears. [Albinar was a distributor's (Fred Alba?) house brand, not a lensmaker.] None look much like what I can see of this one, nor have similar serial numbers. Is yours Japanese or Korean? Is the mount KM or KA or KR?

I do not think it is Albinar as offered on Ebay.
I asked the seller of the NNK lens, and he does not know more either.
I enclose some more pictures of the lens.

or this?

The picture of the 2nd (Sirius) isn't good enough to tell, but yours looks very like the 1st (Sears). I zoomed on its pix and see KOREA on the side, so it's probably by Samyang. My Sears and Albinar copies were/are all decent lenses, better than some of the other 70-210/4 and 80-200/4 glass from that era.
