...and much more!
Not sure if I've posted this already, but here's an air rifle my dad got while he was stationed in Japan in the 50's.
It says "Eagle" on it, but its a close copy of a German Diana spring powered break barrel single shot pellet gun.
My brother and his wife have it now, as they've got a bit of a squirrel problem, destroying their garden (she's the one who does all the shootin' too!).
They live in the middle of town, so even a .22 is out of the question.
She reports it still knocks 'em dead, every time.
...and here's the German original. Diana Model 48. Apparently this company is still producing guns, including the model 48, however this one seems to have been made before the war...
The underlever and the joint the barrel pivots on is different and simpler on the Japanese gun, but otherwise, it's pretty much the spittin' image of this rifle.
