View Full Version : Geco 1925 .22lr

My grandfather gave me a 1925 German-made Geco .22 long rifle. It's single shot, bolt action. It's in beautiful condition, and it's what I used to learn to shoot. I would never sell it, but I'm just wondering how much it's worth.

Rusty , here in Australia they are well thought of rifle but aussified in name , the Geco "Kookaburra" they branded them here,
a real nice collectors one is $400 AUD
one with all original cardboard and manual is $800 say ( shop prices here)
a nice shooter is about $150 - $250 as folks like them and they are great for kids and i wish i had 2 dozen of them most would have a nice little tasco or Nikkon scope fitted at that price
old 50% condition ones for $100 as restoration guns ( need a sleeve etc but good action etc ) they dont really break but are of a age that wear is hitting many hard ..
i have no idea of prices in the USA
but again a nice and well thought of shooter

GECO was the tradename of Gustav Genschow Co., maker of high quality small arms in Germany from 1912 until recently. It has now been absorbed into a sporting arms conglomerate.
