Sigma 90-300mm lens keeps falling off camera

I recently bought a used sigma 90-300mm lens for $25.00.

I have to adjust the aperture and focus manually, which isn't a problem.

Problem is it keeps falling off my camera.

Not quite sure what mount iti is, doesn't have the orange tell-tale dot to line up when mounting it. But, it will go on and does focus fine and take clear picture.
You just can't pull-on it too hard or it will come off.
The lens just sort of hangs there by a small notch, but it does fit snuggly
Each time you mount the lens it fits on a little different with the aperture numbers in a different place. The mount looks like a k-mount,
but it is something else.

Any ideas what mount this is?

I agree, it most likely is. I have a couple Nikon lenses still and they will fit on the camera but won't lock. Your best bet is to sell it and find one with the Pentax mount. At $25 you might even come out ahead on the deal.
