That is a Minolta MD-mount lens. It cannot be used on a Pentax PK-mount camera. Some people have performed serious surgery on MD lenses, usually involving a lathe. There might be an optical MD-PK adapter available, but it will diminish the image quality and make the lens longer and slower. The main market for MD lenses now is for short-register cameras like m4/3, Samsung NX and Sony NEX.

There is an MD to PK adaptor that has about 1.4x but it degrades IQ a little
