GECO, GECO Gold and GECO Black telescopic sights for hunting and sports

Optics have a tradition at GECO: Gustav Genschow & Co. was already selling binoculars under the well-known brand back in the 1930s. Today the GECO brand offers telescopic sights of the highest optical and mechanical quality at an exceptionally fair price. The range is now being expanded by several high quality hunting and sports optics with the GECO, GECO Gold and GECO Black lines. The new models are perfectly adapted to the essential requirements of hunters, marksmen and authorities. 

GECO provides the ideal entry point into the first-class targeting optics segment. The focus of the development here was on technical precision, hunting functionality as well as durability of the telescopic sights. They boast an extremely compact and lightweight construction. The modern design, carefully selected materials and the highest quality also sets new standards. The optical and mechanical performance is unique in this price range. The telescopic sights therefore meet the requirements you expect as well as the motto of the brand: “GECO – ALL YOU NEED.”

The GECO telescopic sights with 3× zoom know how to impress: slim design, extremely compact structural length and low weight are their outstanding attributes. The central barrel diameter is one inch.

The illuminated fine GECOdot with automatic shutoff and integrated Target Turret GECOtrac are unrivalled in this class.
