im going to assume that the C/FD marking seen on image #4 means Canon FD mount. im pretty sure no detective is needed.

Yup. Those weird-lookin' lugs are definitely the Canon FD breech mount.

I'm always too late in threads like this. It indeed is Canon FD mount, and will not fit Pentax in any way... I'm thinking who will buy this, as Canon FD mount has been obsoleete for more than 20 years now.

Those film users who can buy an entire arsenal of great cameras and lenses for dirt cheap since the system is "dead."

It is indeed a Canon FD mount, also called "breech lock".
