Post WW2 British Milbro Hector (Diana Model No.1) Break Action .177 Calibre Air Rifle. AI 592

The German Diana Model 1 was introduced in the 1920’s and was in production until 1945. The Diana trademark moved to Scotland with Milbro after WWII as part of the reparations. Post WW2 until C1952 the Diana No.1 rifles were retailed under the name ‘Hector’. The low power weapons were produced as a starter air weapon for Children and Youths. This is a nice example of the British made Hector. It measures 31" overall with a 17 1/2" barrel which has the correct 8 1/2", screw in, barrel tube insert. It has an undamaged wooden stock and 'chromed' tinplate frame & barrel. To load the weapon the barrel's removable tube insert is loaded with a pellet and it is cocked break-barrel style with two sprung wire latches that keep the action in place. The rifle has it's original finish and it's cocking and firing action work as they should. The weapon has a blade foresight and fixed plate with notch rear sight. The top of the barrel is stamped with the 'Hector' model name and legend together with 'Regd, Made In England'. Price includes UK delivery. NB As a post 1939 Air Weapon the restrictions of the Crime Reduction Act apply to the sale and delivery of this item. AI 592
