MATEBA AutoRevolver 6-Defence
The autorevolver "6 Unica" with its aesthetic and unique finish, its accuracy and very soft recoil is possibly one of the best handguns on the market. Born in the beginning of 1997, the Mateba autorevolver "6 Unica" is the most advanced version of the revolver. It keeps all characteristics of reliability of the revolver combined with the handling and speed of a pistol. To understand the autorevolver it is necessary to imagine firing a standard revolver always in single action just like a pistol. The cylinder turns automatically and the hammer is engaged by the recoil of the slide on which are assembled the barrel and cylinder themselves. The firing position is ergonomically positioned and the aiming is simply fantastic; the barrel is aligned with the bottom chamber of the cylinder to avoid the "jumping".
