    Default Gecado Model-27

    Hi Guys.
    I'm looking for any info about an old Gecado 27. It has a plate in the butt with "Specially made for CYMOT" embossed on it. Anyone got advice about this boat anchor?

    Cheers

    Cymot was a general wholesaler who sold everything from motor spares to sporting goods to baby prams in the days of travelling reps. They probably brought in a load of Gecado's years ago. The order was probably large enough for Gecado to place the plaque on the rifles.

    Gecado did not make anything. They distributed Diana's in a few countries under their name. Quite a few had both emblems/stamps on them and others one of the two eg. Either the Diana badge or the Gecado stamp.

    If you find the invoices of these guns you will see the same. I am not implying that your rifle is a Diana, but I have not read of other brands they distributed here.

    A great article on the Gecado/ Diana mod 27 can be found here :

    If it shoots pellets you'd better believe old Tom has got one and can tell you anything about it.

    Would love to see a list of guns he owns, or has owned in his life.

    Thanks for the info on the old boat anchor, its not actually mine, my one is a later version with the "plastic" components in the rear site and the shroud over the front site.
