I don't understand why you think the K1 would not play with M lenses? My K-3 handles them perfectly, better than my KX (film) did.
M Mode: Set aperture, press green button, press shutter release.
Av: Set aperture, press shutter release.
M mount lenses

On my K-3 (and it was the same with the K10 and K20), "green button" metering (mainly with my K series glass) is regularly 3 or 4 stops over. Thankfully using the histogram helps get it right. I've largely given up using it. Mostly I take the photo, check the histogram, adjust and retake it. If I know I want to photograph something that moves, I'll pack more modern glass.

PS Much easier with Taks where I can use Av and the auto/man switch on the lens to open and shut the aperture.

Also have it in B&W on my Flickr account for the 'Single-in' challenge, but truthfully I prefer the colour version.

Excellent use of my first Pentax model and lens. The shutters on mine gave up in 1978 and I was forced to upgrade to a KX. I still use the original Pentax K adapter for a much later lens. Thank you for posting these photos.
