I'm not sure where you got the Geco connection from. The rifle is marked KABA which is for Carl (/Karl) Bauer, a 1920s gun smith/retailer from Berlin. This rifle dates from post WWI and was most likely made from surplus parts/NOS parts at hand. You can see another KABA marked Gew98 here: Hermann Historica - Internationales Auktionshaus für Antiken, Alte Waffen, Orden und Ehrenzeichen, Historische Sammlungsstücke . Or you may compare it with a Nazi era .22 training rifle pictured here: https://www.k98kforum.com/threads/kaba-spezial-sport-buchse-ges-gesch.2801/ . Hence this is NOT an Imperial German rifle.

Your rifle is extremely nice and surely not many like it were made. Thank you for sharing it!
