If it's a K mount lens it should attach just like any other lens (line up the dot and turn clockwise).

If the lens is labeled Canon or Nikon or Sony or Olympus or Minolta or Panasonic or Konica or Leica or Fujica, it won't fit on a Pentax. If the lens has a screw-threaded base, it might fit with an adapter, or it might not. Can you post a picture of the lens base? That would give us something to go on.

It could also be a vivitar type lens that has a guard flange too big to allow the lens to mount.

Ricoh pin anyone? Or does that just stop it unmounting?

Indeed it might.

That's right.

But until we see what the OP has, we're just guessing.
