Diana Model-70 & Model-72 youth rifles ad (US, 1989).

 

Here is a RWS/Diana ad scanned from American Airgunner magazine, Oct-Dec 1989.

Note the diopter rear sight, which fits over the open sight (pic of Frakor's mod 72 with diopter follows).

Diana's 'kneeling boy' series (1913-1930?).

 

This was a long-running series of newspaper adverts which started before WW1 and ended before WW2 featuring a standing man and kneeling boy. The company adjusted the clothing of both depending on the period - adding military uniforms or more civilian-looking clothing at other times.

Dianawerke is listed as being at either Rastatt 1, 2, 3, or 15, which may give a clue to the dates.

November 1913
