Struggling with Tokina MF 28-70mm

Hey there, I recently purchased on ebay a Tokina MF 28-70mm lense, and I'm struggling to fit it on my Pentax K-x.
According to the description it is a K-fit lens, but no matter what I cannot mount it properly. I've also checked the post about K-fit lenses, but this one does not seem like any of those as it has 2 "leveler" (one controls the aperture, the other don't know as it doesnt move). For reference I took a picture of it.
Anyone could advise what (am i doing) is wrong?

I'd highly appreciate it!

What does the "N/AI" stamped on the base of the lens mean? A little Googling has me convinced this lens is in Nikon mount, not Pentax.

Either there has been a mistake or you have been defrauded. Probably the former.

-.- while the post was waiting for approval, I googled around and checked all the mounts Tokina made this lens for. It does resemble the Nikon mount, and the final glue was indeed the N/AI marking, it means Nikon AI series.
Lesson learned, contacted ebay seller to sort this out, as the description was inaccurate.
