DIANA mod.45 cutaway
I have a Diana model 45 cutaway and its a early serial # ooo1**. Is there any value in it? Its in very good condition! Would appreciate any info you can give me on it. Thanks
Yes there is some value, to be sure. Can I have some pics for the gallery please?
Could you email me the pics?
My email on the final page of this magazine:
Ill send some pics to your email as soon as I can. I tried to post so here with no luck! Thanks Tim
This is a great website and enjoy it a lot! THANKS TO ALL
@citizen-k I completely agree with Tims Antiques. This is a great website - not because of the layout... I am very familiar with that, but because of the content. I am like a child in a bantam coop. I browsed through a few threads today and found no discussions of O-rings and/or regulators. Not a word about a scuba cylinder. Fantastic.
I found the link to this site on airrifle.co.za today. I became a member of this site today. I found this thread because it was interesting to me. I found your reply to this thread by accident. All I need to find now is the "Introduce yourself" button for this site.
It is an absolute pleasure to see you on this byway. Thumbs up emoji.
I agree with you Andre, this one was done really well. But cutaways are definitely not all equally well done. A lot of the Diana cutaways - and there are many of them - were done to an extremely high standard, by what looks like expert machinists, but some, unfortunately including the pistol that I have, are not up to that standard, with evidence of less than excellent workmanship.
This makes me think it was a task set apprentices, perhaps. I wonder what happened to those workers whose work wasn't up scratch? Presumably they were made to sweep the floor for a little while longer, or maybe canned altogether?!
Example of what I mean:
