My very first airgun, a Diana Model 22, in .177 cal, made in the UK, is back in my possession.... I got it for Christmas about 1958, so it is about 60 years old.... I put thousands of pellets through it, as did my three nephews, and to my surprise my brother, who recently passed, still had it, stashed in the ceiling of his house....

I have no intention of selling it, and the leather cup seal is toast, plus it's missing the breech seal.... but I am curious if anyone knows what the original velocity of this gun might have been.... and also what years it was manufactured....


Dominion Marksman Silver Shield - 5890 x 6000 in 1976, and downhill ever since!
Too many! Springers, Pumpers, CO2, but I love my PCPs and developing them!
