Mount Question

I purchased this lens off E-bay. Advertised as Pentax mount. It's a Sears 80-200 lens. The mount looks different from any K mounts I've currently got. Is it a K-mount, and safe to mount on my camera? Pictures are not great. If you can't tell from these pics, I'll try to get something better.

Why not just try it? Looks like some older K lenses I have.

After a closer look, I'm thinking it is a K-mount. I was mostly confused by the bearings near the middle. The entire center section moves around those bearings. I guess the one's I've got are all enclosed, hence the confusion.

There's a surprisingly simple way to tell if it is K-mount, without all the guesswork -- try to mount it on your camera

Yup, did it, and it mounted. I was just afraid it would get stuck or something if it wasn't right. Better safe than sorry. Thanks for the help.
