Earlier version post-WW1 mod 27

April 28 2010, 10:20 AM 

This is a very good earlier example, with no model number stamped on the cylinder and a "Diana-Luft-Gewehr" stamp on the barrel. It's in working order and still able to push pellets out at over 600fps, says owner Mike D.

With thanks to Mike for these pics:

The export version of this rifle (see "Millard Bros catalogue, early 1930s" in the literature etc thread).

Later post-WW1 mod 27

September 11 2010, 11:49 PM 

This is a later example of this model, with the model number stamped on the cylinder. It appears to have been nickel-plated. Note the keeper screw on the trigger block cross bolt.

"MGR"-marked mod 27 (37?)

June 30 2012, 1:20 AM 

With thanks to Mark for these pics.

The rifle is in .177 cal and is 109cm long. Note the adjustable rear sight, based
on the BSA Improved Model D design. These have been seen on post-WW2 Diana mods.

This rifle could actually be a mod 37 according to the illustrations on this list

Diana 27 or 32? (November 1931)

November 6 2012, 8:31 PM 

We're not certain whether this is a model 32 or a 27 with a BSA block-type rearsight fitted. It is the right length for a model 32 but not exactly the published weight.

It has a rifled barrel.

With many thanks to Chris for supplying these excellent pics.

Diana mod 27E with pistol grip stock

November 30 2012, 4:36 PM 

Here is an export model 27. It has no markings whatsoever, so perhaps was destined to be 'rebadged'in an export market?

Note the unusual BSA-style trigger guard, which is similar to one fitted to the export model 27 pictured earlier in this section.

Sadly it has been fired during cocking and has a slightly upward pointing barrel.

"MGR" marked pre-WW1 Diana 27 (37?)

January 13 2013, 8:22 PM 

Many thanks to Tomas for these pics. This lovely rifle (yes, it is rifled, not smoothbore) is 109.5cm long and weighs 2.7kg. Most of its original blued finish remains and it has the Lincoln-Jeffries-style adjustable block rear sight.

Diana mod 27 DRPa

March 18 2014, 8:13 PM 

This is an interesting 'patents pending' example of the half-stocked DRP. Unusually, it has a metal buttplate similar to the pre-DRP rifle models.
