Important Announcement!

Hi Guys and Merry Xmas.
The forums theme was changed this morning to the Xmas theme, but as normal, I doubt it is showing up.
So a quick fix for this is to scroll to the bottom of the page and look for the Change Theme button, located on the bottom left.
Click that and you will be presented with 2 options, simply select the Xmas theme, if that fails, select the 2.3 sense theme and then reselect the Xmas theme.

Now you've posed that question, I just realised mine is a Scottish-built Diana, not an Original!
The Scot-built guns have a date stamp on the end of the butt, as in 4/57 (month/year).
I dunno if the Deutschlanders did this???

Hope this helps, atb, Shinny.

Hi. I have a few of these, Originals 23,25,27,35 & Dianas 22, Webley junior ( Same as Diana 22 ! )
In my opinion the Originals are much nicer than the Diana,s & The scottish Milbro guns " Enough said ! "

The 23,25 &35 are very nice,
Value I would put the smaller models ( Up to 25 ) Around 40-50
The 27 is quite a bit bigger & Nicer, The 35 nicer in my opinion than the HW 35 ?

I have Pics but " Photobucket " Has gone to sleep, Later !
Ged.
