Problems with a battery grip on a ist DL

I picked up Pentax ist Dl for a secondary body. Plus it was cheap. I have large hands so I purchased Battery grip D-BG1 which is supposed to fit ist D camera. I found out that it does not fit ist Dl . Not even close. Nothing lines up.there's no plug in on the bottom of the camera body or alignment pins. Does anybody know anything about this?

You summed it up well: it's supposed to fit the *ist D, not other bodies like the *ist DS or DL. There are no official grips available for the latter two models.
