Diana Airguns - Post War Catalogues, Brochures
Post-War Diana brochure.
Whoever produced this brochure was being very coy about the true origins of the guns pictured - no manufacturer is mentioned at all although the "Printed in Germany" gives it away!
Several interesting references to the pre-War Diana rifles too, with more than one mention of "pre-War quality". Was Diana trying to draw a distinction between its own post-War production and that of its rival based in Scotland - but perhaps doing it subtly in recognition of lingering anti-German sentiment in the English-speaking countries?
With thanks once again to Peter for these scans.
Milbro catalogue late 1960s.
With thanks to Oliver for these scans. He says: "Here, courtesy of a friend, are some scans of a rather grubby late 1960s Milbro leaflet with its range of air rifles shown. Interesting how limited the range was at this time, the rare G46 'Targetmaster' being the top of the range, but I must say I do like the elegant stocks of this period."
