Numrich lists Gecado, but it looks like small-caliber semi-autos:

Info is sparse, but best bet is to google Gecado:
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=gecado

and Gecado "herbert schmidt":
http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q...ert+schmidt%22

Looks like they're inexpensive revolvers in the mold of RG.

Here is what I found with a search for Gecado:

the Dornheim company (Dornheim G. C. Dornheim AG, Suhl. Germany) was the marketer but not the manufacturer of Gecado pistols. Gecado pistols were all made for Dornheim by other firearms manufacturers. Pre-war Gecado pistols were low quality 6.35mm and 7.65mm 'Eibar' automatics, manufactured by SEAM (q. v.). They bore the word 'Gecado' in a diamond.

All post-war Gecado pistols were manufactured in Germany. Post-war Gecado models included various .22 caliber revolvers and a blowback operated model much like the pre-war models except for a difference in the location of the safety catch. Your pistol is a post-war model probably imported some time in the 1960s.

Collector interest in this type of pistol is typically low, they often sell in the $50 or less range.


The "Nazi" eagle you stated is more likely to have been a Federal eagle symbol of post-war West Germany.

Thank you very much. This is the most information that I have ever been able to find out about this gun. I plan on keeping it. I just wanted to make sure that it was C&R eligible since my dad gave it to me.

Thank you again for your help. I appreciate it very much.
