Mateba Model Unica 6

Very rare and collectable Italian revolver that is known for its unusual appearance. Unlike a traditional revolver, the Unica 6 has a lower barrel placement, firing from the bottom of the cylinder. This design would eventually live on in the Chiappa Rhino series of revolvers. (GRH)
