Have a 177 pellet gun (old) - no stock on it.

Mod 16

I have never heard of this name?

Does anyone know anything about it ?

Thanks
Paul

Dianawerk made some guns from 1922-1940 using the name "Gecado". It should be the same gun as the Diana Model 16- just with the slight name difference. The Model 16 was made again from 1950-1985 but had 'Diana' on it instead of Gecado. I gather they are not worth much from a financial point-of-view, but are still interesting as a pre-WWII airgun.

Dear Paul,



We refer to your mail dd. January 22.

GECADO was a Product of our company.

Under this brand we sold our air rifles and air pistols in the UK.

Anyone know of the Gecado Model 6? I need some parts. I'll Google Diana and see.

I believe the Model 6 was very nearly the same design as the Model 5. Both were apparently discontinued in the late 1970s. Perhaps parts are still available- let us know what Diana has to say, it would be interesting to see how long they typically have inventory on older parts.

Oh, and Welcome to AirGunHome!
