Help me! Will this lens fit on a Pentax camera?

I found a Vivitar Series 1 70-210mm F/3.5 (v1) lens but I am unsure if it is a Pentax mount or not. Can someone maybe be able to tell from this picture?

OK, I found one that will fit. It is a version 3 and the owner is advertising it as having the "A" contacts. I can't tell from the picture but if it does I find it weird that it has a white ring around the front of the lens instead of red. Can someone help me on this one?

Here is a picture of the back:

and here is the front:

Thanks!

Photos not very good.
The seller should be able to answer whether it is K mount or not or if it has "A" contacts, then KA mount.
From the photos provided it is kinda hard to tell.
These is how usually ebayers take blurry photos or poor ones to get away from actually selling you an item that is right or for the right price at that.
I have always encountered, "I'm not a camera expert" but it "looks like"..and then followed by "no returns accepted".

The link to the front pic is really a tiny (smaller than thumbnail) side view pic.
However I took a look at the back, and the dot, aperture leaver, and contacts seem to line up like a Pentax A lens. So I imagine that it is one
