Diana Model-8 Target.

 

This very rare pistol was otherwise known as "The Holborn" and the "Diana Target".

With many thanks to Lawrie for these excellent pics:

 

 

 

 

Thanks again to Lawrie for these pics, which show more detail of the rear sight.

There are also several that show a reproduction sight Lawrie made for an American collector.

With thanks to John M for these pics of the same pistol:

Diana Model-8 Target - Unbranded.

 

With thanks to John G for these pics.

This pistol was marketed in the UK as the 'Holborn' and the absence of a 'Diana' marking, as on the other mod 8 in this gallery, suggests it could have been left unbranded for export.
