... and here it is along with its accompanying post (hope this helps :)). ATB: Gareth W-B.
Hi, does it look like THIS (http://gunpix.net/coppermine/displayimage.php?album=random&cat=10003&pos=-82) by chance? It is basically a Milbro Diana SP-50 that was made and badged for the Merseyside company of Champion and called a J.50. Towards the end of last year so the story goes, a full container of 200 of them was found in a wharehouse in Manchester during a clearance where they had been lying for the last 25 years :eek:. Bought by a wholesaler in an auction, these pistols very soon found there way into an array of gun shops, and are now (so the story continues) all sold. The one pictured here came to me via Good Guy nickpan (who also hosted this photo -- thanks Nick), and so this story ends ... :D.

I managed to get only one more of the Manchester warehouse batch which is like the others mint, unused in box with instructions and cocking aid. Definately the last one. Same price as last time. £35 posted
