Help to identify my Diana

I inherited an air rifle with the name diana-luft-gewehr on the top of the barrel. Does anybody know from the pictures if it is a real Diana and if so which model?

I think it's an early model 45. Hard to tell with those pics. Can you take more in good daylight please?

PS I know it doesn't have an external trigger adjustment bolt, but neither did the second model 45. Yours could be a transitional model between the 1st and 2nd series. Or maybe the bolt on your rifle is missing? Is there an empty hole in the front of the trigger guard?
