    Looks good. But that square nut on the cocking link is a horror.

    Is the barrel not bent skywards?

    Barrel seats like that because of hitting it closed for many years. It won't be used only for display.

    You've done a neat restoration. If you decide to straighten the barrel keep us posted.
    Chambers in Scotland will sell you the missing bits needed (Chambers Gunmakers - Airgun, Shotgun Rifle spares. Parts for Air Arms, BSA, Crosman, Diana, Gamo, Relum, Webley, Weihrauch and many, many more).
    Look under Diana/Original, model 22.
    There are at least two members on this forum who stock old airgun bits, I can't remember their names but one is in Bloem and I think the other is in Pretoria.
