Chinon 135mm 2.8 Question

I have the opportunity to buy a Auto Chinon 135 mm F2.8 lens for cheap(~$20).
I could not find anything on the google search.
I wanted to know from the forum members if anyone has used this lens on a Pentax SLR or did Chinon make lenses in different mounts (m42, K etc).
I have a Pentax K10D that I would like to use it on.

I have this lens and use it with my K10. Please not that its a totally manual lens since the K10 has the crippled K-mount. It works but does not give you stunning images. Got it when I bought my CE-4 in 1983 or something. I believe without beeing sure Chinon made some screw-mount cameras earlier but I would not expect this lens to be screw-mount.

Thanks for the reply.
If the IQ is not good, then I'll skip buying it.
