I own an old Gecado Model 25. My bb gun is more powerful. Where can I get spare parts to get it shooting better?

The Gecado brand was actually made in Germany by Meyer & Grammelspather. They were sold over the world under different names, Original, Diana, Gecado, But all the different modles where the same, just sold under a different name by a different distribution company. The branding "Diana" has now been absorbed by the company and is now Diana Meyer & Grammelspacher GmbH & Co. KG. The distribution company that distributed the Gecado branded rifles was run by CEO Geoffery Carl Donnahiem, you can now see where the name "Gecado" came from Back in the day.
For what it's worth, other German makers did similar things in those days--early Weihrauchs were sold under the "Heym" and "Burgo" names, and BSF also used the "Burgo," "Wischo," and "Bavaria" trademarks. "Burgo" was the trademark of the big German sporting goods house Hugo Burgsmuller and Sons, so this was analogous to M&G's arrangements with RWS or Beeman.
Anyways, just a bit of history there.
