Is there a way for you to post a picture of the mount? There shouldn't be any problem mounting the lens if it is a K-mount.

Some of the Vivitars have an overly large protective shield (overly large for dslr) which (in my experience) is removed w/ 3 screws. If this is the case you can cut it down and add it back, or simply be careful and not.

Ignore what I said. As Boriscleto says--not an issue for the K1000. I was thinking DSLR.A

It shouldn't be a problem on a K1000.

I will post images, unfortunately not today I am 24 hrs on call in hospital (so the first thing is to survive till tomorrow )

I will post photos of K1000 and lens mounts too, and we will see if it's my rookie mistake or something "big"

Anyway thanks for consults, appreciate

Are you sure the lens is a Pentax mount? Vivitar made lenses in many different mounts and vendor may have sent you the wrong one. Just saying
