GECO question


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I have a Rolling Block that was 'smithed by GECO. Barrel is stamped Gustav Gerschow Berlin. I Haven't been able to find much except they did build and remodel rifles pre WW II, don't know for how long. Anyway, can someone give me any more info? TIA.

Well, that is another question that needs to be finalized. 38-55 brass fits and chambers/shoots great but is just a tad short. I'm still trying to see if there is a metric equivalent to the 38-55; 9.3X57R is real close, but is expensive. BTW, that is a huge hog on your profile picture!

I think he got his revenge when we had to drag him a ways and then load him It took five rounds of .44 mag/270gr to get him quieted down and the last was administered at around 10'.
