Lens Adapter for Pentax Q using Pentax K1000 Lenses

My wife just bought a Pentax Q Camera and would like to use the larger lenses that she used with her Pentax K1000 Camera. Is there an adapter that would work with
the Pentax Q camera she has now? Have been looking on several sites but none mention using the k1000 lenses. Is there such an adapter

What she has are Pentax K mount lenses which were mounted on K1000 camera. You'll need to look for a Pentax K to Q mount adapter. The only one worth getting is the Pentax's own adapter: Pentax Adapter Q for K-mount Lenses 39977 B&H Photo Video

Absolutely. Here's the genuine Pentax adapter:

A third-party alternative if that's too steep:

Note that third-party adapters don't have a leaf shutter, which means the electronic shutter will always have to be used.

The K1000 has a K-mount. Any K to Q adapter will work.

The Pentax Adapter Q for K-mount lenses is more advanced than the third party adapters. It has a built in leaf shutter and electronics that allow some of the more advanced Q features to be used. But it does cost several times more than the Chinese adapters...

K-1000 is K-mount so any adapter that works for K-mount will work.
