Larry Hannusch on vintage underlevers.

 

This article is from the Oct/Nov/Dec 1989 issue of American Airgunner and covers underlever
rifles from across Europe, which nicely contextualises Diana's pre-WW2 production alongside
its German and British competitors. Considering when it was written, more than 20 years ago,
the factual content holds up well.

With thanks to the author for permission to reproduce it.
