It should work for what it's designed for.

I originally posted the question in the Q section since the Q's K-mount adapter doesn't have a tripod mount and many there have expressed a need for such a tripod mount. The question was moved here by admin. I can't change the title to indicate that the question is specific to the Q. Posting in the Q forum didn't require me to specify. Moving the post confused the issue and in light of this similar post in the Q forum I don't understand why mine was moved.

It has been noted by Q users that the tripod mount supplied with the DA* 300mm works with the K adapter for the Q. This is doesn't appear to be the exact same mount but it looks exactly the same.

No, you did not post it in the Q forum, you originally posted it in the Articles section, so I moved it here.
Until about noon CST tomorrow (when the redirect expires) you can see it here: Pentax DSLR and Camera Articles - PentaxForums.com

Apologies. You are correct. I was sure I posted it in the Q forum. Probably not a good idea to post from my phone in the future. I'll just order it and post my findings in the Q forum when it arrives. Again, my apologies.

I have been notified that a slow boat from Japan with my tripod mount on board has begun it's journey across the Pacific. Should be here by 2015.

Is it a third party version of the Pentax mount?

Mine is, yes. It's not as tall as the Pentax.
