Diana Model-6 - Wood Stock.

 

This is an early model. Serial number is unknown (for now). It probably dates from the early 1960s. With thanks to Eberhard for the pic.

Some interesting pics here from Frank showing differences between the opposing pistons, springs and timing cogs in the first mod 6 and in the same model a decade on:

Diana Model-6 - Early Model - Wood Grips.

 

With many thanks to Frank for these superb pics.

Both pistols pictured are very early models (serial nos 02292 and 02180), probably made around 1960.

Diana Model-6 - Boxed - Wood Grips..

 

These are pretty rare pistols, although not as rare as first thought. But a boxed one is exceptionally unusual. It dates from around 1960. Note the walnut wood grips and the beautifully detailed steel rear sight.

Note also the differences between the hand grip stippling detail and the profile of the fore end tips on the box illustration and the pistol in reality. This is not the first time a factory graphics dept was out of sync with the manufacturing shop floor! The first Walther LP53 brochure springs to mind, which showed wood grips rather than plastic, though none of these first Walther LP53 factory wood grips has  showed up so far, to my knowledge.

Prototype Diana mod 6 woodstock? 

Spotted on eGun.de. Note front sight and muzzle treatment. It looks quite like this postwar Model 5 woodstock but with a different front sight. Note also that the rear cylinder cap looks different from the later examples, and that the both the breech appears to lack a serial number and the cylinder the Diana goddess and model designation found on later(?) mod 6 woodstocks. The trigger also seems to be different.

Diana mod 6 woodstock with decals

This pistol spotted on eGun.de. Possibly another prototype, it also seems to have no make and model markings. Note that the cylinder end cap and front sight are of a pattern different to other known woodstock mod 6s, but the muzzle is the same diameter as the rest of the barrel.
