Ricoh Pin ?

Bought some bargain vintage glass on eBay to learn on. Looking for opinions on if this mount, ricoh pin, will get stuck on my K-r. Thought I would ask for opinions before I put the lens on my camera.
Thanks for your help

Looks more like the 'Ricoh Nub' to me.This is the pin of a lens long known for getting stuck, the Sears 60-300...

It will be fine -- just a little spring-loaded button like the rest. Any of the ones that say "P/K" on them should be fine as they were marketed for Pentax -- they would have gotten stuck on the older film bodies as well if they were going to.

They would have gotten stuck on old AF film bodies. They wouldn't have gotten stuck on MF film bodies.

You might find that the aperture level arm guard is too long to fit on the camera. That was my experience with one or two lenses that are labled the same way on the mount.

Thanks for all the advice. I took the aperture guard off and have had no issues mounting or removing the lens.
Now just to work on improving skills with a MF lens!
Now I'm anxiously awaiting a 50mm F1.9 prime to arrive!
