The Diana trademark and machinery was sold by the Allies to Milbro (Scotland) as war reparations and airguns were forbidden in Germany. In 1950 the Allied Control Council permitted the sale and manufacturing of limited velocity airguns in Germany. The original owners of the Dianawerks trademark (Mayers) began building rifles again . Rifles were sold in Germany under the tradename "Original". Milbro died as a company and the Dianawerks  tradename was bought back in the early '80s. BKA is probably the logo of a retailer. You have a 75 made for the German market.
