Little help picking K-mount SLR?

Any problems with M series wind-on levers is almost certainly overblown and much less prevalent that electronic issues with the Super-A. The Super-A is a great camera but I've had all sorts of intermittent problems from the mode dial and/or delivery of power from the battery. Often the bulb to illuminate the LCD works but there's no other power in the camera (the top-plate LCD doesn't show the wound-on indicator). Sometimes brand new, fresh batteries fix it, sometimes it doesn't. The ME Super electronics and meter in the MX are much simpler and more likely to be reliable in 40+ year old cameras.

The only camera not yet mentioned that might be an option is the original P30 - the only issue perhaps is it's reliant on DX coding. The body is mostly metal (only the top-plate & finger grip seem to be plastic), it has a shutter speed dial, meter lock (a rarity in Pentax MF bodies), takes a mechanical cable release and shouldn't be hard to find for a reasonable price. The later P30n/T are probably more plasticky.
