Pka Bayonet lens to K-5

I have recently purchased a Kiron Precision 105mm lens ...PKA Bayonet....and it does not fit on my Pentax K-5 camera. Is there an adapter that I have to buy to make that possible or do I have to re-sell the lens ? Thank You for taking the time to read this.

Does this lens actually say on the mount or body that it's a PKA - or was it sold/advertised as such? If you can, you should upload a few photos of the lens (front - body - mount). That would make it safer for us to give you advice.

Does it have an extra long aperture shield? It might be helpful if you could post a picture of the mount.

That's a Canon FD mount.

I'd try getting my money back for it if you can.

A very nice lens, but in Canon FD. Easily adapted to NEX or M4/3s but sadly not to Pentax. Get your money back because whoever sold it to you is an idiot.

I always thought that mount was slow and goofy.
