Diana Mod 2 (early german)
Posted 11 May 2009 - 03:54 PM
I have a german Diana Mod 2 in the blued finish with a lightish wood grip which is complete and in full working order and generally good condition. I was wondering if anyone could give me an idea of it's approximate value, and how to go about selling it. ???

On one of the other forums, a working Diana Mod 2 sold for £12 including Postage and Paypal. And I can see that a second one went for £15 including postage. Another plastic grip one went at £10 posted and the same person had a wood grip version for £25 posted. There is also an Original Mod 2 which are similar but apparently rarer which I think went for about £38 incl postage.
Hope this helps.

Many thanks for taking the time to reply, I guessed it wasn't going to be worth any great amount so i'm not disappointed, The remaining question is how do i go about selling it ? ie if i find a buyer can it be sent through the post or is that a real no no. ?

Up to you but I would place it for sale in the For Sale section on this website. Adding a pic or two will probably help.

Here is a little story on this pistol. 30 years ago I was working as a pin spotter at a bowling alley called Savage Brothers. It was owned by Earl and Willis Savage. Both had served in WW2. They retired from the business and sold the bowling alley. This is when I come into the picture. The bowling alley was taken over by a man Named Tom Meyers who hired me as a pin spotter and mechanic. The back of the bowling alley was a mess, so Tom got a dumpster and we began to clean it up. Throwing away just about everything that wasn't nailed down. I had picked up a shoe box that was taped up, shook it and pitched it in the dumpster. Later that night at work I got to wondering about the shoe box, so I went out and dug through the dumpster untill I found it. Opened it up and the pistol was in it rapped up in a sock. I had no idea what it was at the time and there was no internet back then lol. So thats how I came across this pistol. DSCF0007.JPG 216.38KB 6 downloads DSCF0002.JPG 117.68KB 8 downloads
