The GECO flare gun is a vintage German army surplus 26.5mm flare gun. Designed to fire a wide assortment of 26.5mm flares, these German built flare guns are well made and more refined than other European flare guns from the same era. The fit, function, and overall operation of the GECO flare gun is superior to virtually all other flare guns from the same era and it still ranks high even with compared to modern day flare guns.

We have just received a new shipment of these unique flare guns. Examining the date codes on each one, we have seen dates ranging from 1959 up until 1973. Each flare gun is unique with the condition varied between each and date codes being spread across so many months and years. Our expert team has ensured that each flare gun functions and does not have any cracked grips that would take away from the value or operation. The finish on each flare gun will show signs of use and age, as all are over 40+ years old and were actually used by soldiers in the West German and later German army.

Customer Reviews

Well built and well worth the money
Review by Lonzo
Verified Buyer
The one I received looks to be almost new. It's all metal except for the grips, and should last a lifetime, even with constant use. I intend to order another for my brother, it's that well built. Would highly recommend to anyone. I did not buy the holster, but will order two with the next flare gun order.
Super Nice!

This is a super nice flare gun. The one I got was still in its original paper wrap. The holster did look like it had been used, but who cares about the holster.

Would recommend this to anyone looking for a flare gun.
Nice flare pistol for the price - Built well and is all metal
Review by Flare_Man
Verified Buyer
Great flare pistol! Made of all metal construction with no plastic parts, this thing is built to last. Came packed with original paperwork from VCI (that was surprising!) and the lockup is good. Very durable.

Purchased it from KeepShooting for $64.95...good value I'll defiantly buy a second one at this price.
Way better than my Orion
Review by Capt Rick
Verified Buyer
This thing is way better than my plastic Orion. Just wish I could shoot 12 gauge flares from it. Did find a supplier of USG approved 26.5mm flares, they are just a lot more expensive than 12 gauge ones.

Would buy this again, thinking of anyway to have a spare.
