Does a k1000 battery cover work on a Program A?

So I recently found a Pentax Program A at my grandmas house. She has no idea why she even had it. And ive been wanting to take some pictures with it but before I can it needs some fixing up to do. The first thing I noticed was that the battery cover was missing. I got on ebay to see if I could find a replacement part and I found something. Its a batery cover to a K1000. I've done a little "research" and another user on this page had a similar problem but she found a differnt cover for hers. I know that the Super A and the Program A are basicly the same camera. But since this is a K1000 will the battery cover sitll work on my camera?

The issue you will find is that the cameras uses 2 batteries instead of 1 on the K1000. The battery holder has some plastic guides to hold the batteries in place. You can try it but the batteries will most likely be a little loose inside. I'm not home so I can't check and try with my Super Program.


I checked the online manual and I think you may be OK. The Program A doesn't have the plastic sleeves like the earlier K2.
