Pentax P30

having just completed a City and Guilds Photography course, I decided to give film another try. Managed to find a P30 at a reasonable price and have fitted an old PK lens (from a sadly broken K1000). This works fine in manual mode - and this is the mode I will generally use. However, I have one (probably very facile query). I cannot turn the shutter dial to programme mode. All the other settings on the shutter dial are fine. Is this just because I haven't fitted a PK-A lens or is it possible I have a small fault?
Thanks for any advice.

Is it an M or A series lens?

It looks like it's an M series lens.

Thanks for your reply
