I have the sister to that lens, the Super-Wide II 24mm and it looks nothing like that; there's a bayonet, but the contacts are all wrong...

it does not look like a K-mount lens from here....

It looks like a Practica B-mount (a.k.a PB-mount).

Welcome to the Pentax Forums! As user @Markkuk noted above, the mount is Praktica B with a flange focal distance of 44mm* (shorter than M42 and Pentax-K). The lens is not adaptable to Pentax-K without additional optical elements and I am unaware of any successful attempts at a "surgical" solution to allow use on a K-mount camera.


* 44.4mm by some sources

Questions about Praktica B (PB-mount) lenses go back a long way on this site with the most recent being just this last summer. A Google search using the following search term will provide a partial list, "praktica b".

possible to convert Praktica B to PK


I have converted a Prakticar 2,8/135 MC with Praktica B mount to Pentax K. Check here objektiv/Prakticar 2,8:135/Prakticar 2,8_135 MC.html

I do not know if it is possible to convert your Sigma. Probably it wold work as long as you can adjust infinity with the focusing ring. There is a difference in the flange distance. The optics must com closer to the sensor.
