1960’ Diana Mod 27 .22 Air Rifle. AI 679 - AI 679
Diana as a brand is German in origin, hailing from Mayer and Grammelspacher dating back to 1890, and the company certainly has a colourful history. The Model 27 first saw light of day way back in 1910; although its early form followed the basic blueprint of the day, with no forend to speak of, just the butt section. Sold around the world under various guises (namely Original, Beeman, Hy-Score, and Milbro) it’s all part of the identity crisis suffered by Mayer and Grammelspacher through two world wars! Features include an adjustable rear sight and also an adjustable breech bolt, with a lockable adjuster. The Diana 27 (1953-1987) is a break barrel single shot spring-piston air rifle. It was made in both .177 and .22 calibres, though when some companies like Hy-Score (807) and Winchester (427) rebranded it, they did so in .22, only. The rifle has a one-piece beech wood stock that’s fairly flat, so not a lot of shaping was done. The barrelled action is all steel. Though plain looking, it also looks upper class when compared to the new air rifles we see today. 41 ¾“ in total length with a 14” barrel. The dark wooden stock has a few small use related marks and the metal work retains the majority of its blueing with rub marks on the cocking lever. The front of the barrel has light surface rust. The top of the cylinder wears the Diana motif with ‘Diana MOD.27 Made in GT Britain’ ‘Drilled for Scope -.22’. The serial No 271745 is on the cocking elbow and the age 5 60 (May 1960) is stamped to the butt end of the stock. The price includes UK delivery.

C1880 Etched Regimentally Marked Imperial German NCO Sabre and Scabbard by Weyersburg Kirschbaum & Cie . ED 2165. - ED 2165
This model sword was also used after WWI, in both Weimar and Nazi Germany; it is a smaller dress sword that was obviously modelled on the German 1848 sabre. Many of these swords have their maker’s marks hidden under the langets as this example does; under a light a kings head and knight’s head over WK & C can be made out, that was the mark used after Weyersburg (King’s Head logo) merged with Kirschbaum & Cie (Knights Head Logo) in 1883. The single fullered 31 ¼ inch blade features etched military trophies and floral motif half way up the sword and more floral etching half way up the spine. The style of etching is consistent with imperial era blades. The hilt is constructed of silver coloured, possibly nickel-plated steel. The grip is triple wire wrapped shagreen (Fish skin). One of the langets has the regiment mark ‘S.Kö.I.1.’ etched to it as does the locket on the scabbard. The blade has some staining consistent with age. The scabbard has a large silver coloured, possibly nickel-plated steel locket, chape and hanger. The metalwork and leather are in very good condition. The leather stitching is fully intact. See page 202 of ‘The Illustrated Encyclopaedia of Swords and Sabres’ by Harvey J S Withers. The price includes UK delivery. ED 2165.
