"Geco" PP Holster Set; Belt & Shoulder

Found a copy of an original early 1930s German PP and PPK manual entitled "Die neuen Walther Polizei-Pistolen Mod. PP u. PPK," (The new Walther Police Pistol models PP and PPK), on website http://pistole38.com. A belt holster and shoulder holster are pictured on page 6 referred to in quotes as the leather holster "Geco." (Not to be confused with the lizard). I am interested in authentic accessories for my 1938 PP, 7.65. Assuming "Geco" was/is the name of a manufacturer I searched for Geco holsters and came up empty. In fact, almost no early 30s German Army Ordinance Office records survived WWII about holsters. Any information about Geco holsters would be greatly appreciated.

Geco was the trade abbreviation for the firm Gustav Genschow & Co., a large sporting goods firm simlar to Akah (Albrecht Kind aus Hunstig). Geco sold many items under their trade name and often offered protected design (D.R.G.M.) products similar to Akah. I would say that to find small caliber holsters for the PP and PPK marked with the Geco logo will be challenging compared to finding those marked for Akah or other commercial manufacturers like Sindel or Fischer. You will probably have quicker success finding an Akah marked shoulder holster of their protected "Reichsbank" design.

Thanks you very much for the info. I didn't even imagine I'd find the answer to who Geco was/is. Also thanks for the advice.
