Daisy Model 160 Mfg 1965-70
The Daisy 160 is a .177 caliber break barrel pellet rifle.
After WWII the Dianawerks were forbidden to make airguns by the treaties that ended the war. The machinery from the Diana plant was sold to the British government as war reparations. The British government sold the equipment to a company called Milliard Brothers, an outfitter and supllier of outdoor equipment. Milliard Brothers founded a company in Scotland called Milbro and they manufactured these guns for Daisyt using the Diana machinery. Later, after Milbro went out of business, Diana sued to get their name back and the modern Diana company was created.
