Default French Unique Model 52 Pistol Parts

I have recently inherited a pistol named "Unique". It is a French made 22L.r. semi-auto pistol. I was wondering if anyone knew of a website that sells parts (specifically magazines) for this pistol. I have searched and haven't seen anything. I believe the company that made them has gone out of business.

I found this website: French UNIQUE GUN PARTS, Factory Unique Gun Repaire Parts, Bob's Gun Shop. MILLIONS* OF GUN PARTS, Unique Automatic Pistol Parts, Unique French Pistol Parts. Unique Buccaneer Pistol Parts. Unique Model L Pistol Parts. Unique French Escort Pistol Part
It claimed to have parts for the gun, however, after emailing them, I found that they have run out of magazines for my model.

Any input at all will be greatly appreciated.

UPDATE: I've found it on ammoclip.com. I've placed an order. I'll be sure to update again and tell if/when I receive it.

I remember seeing a Unique pistol in the past. Do you have any pics?

Marstar might be a good place for other parts you might need.

Here is a page I found when I was researching a Unique 17 WWII bring back that I still might buy. Good one to keep bookmarked. They have a lot of different magazines.

The company that made them is Manufacture d'Armes Des Pyrenees and yes, they are out of business.

Very nice...I've had three Unique 22's over the past 30 years or so...Heavy and built to last and still very popular over here in Europe...I probably put 10-12000 rounds of all sorts of 22lr ammo (including some 'furry' ancient stuff) through my original model 'L' and it took it all. Many provincial French Police Forces used Unique Model 51 pistols in 32cal right up to the late 70's. Not too accurate over 10yards but totally reliable and fun to shoot...enjoy

You're right, but it was used by the National Police ...
As this hand gun didn't have too much stopping power, French National Police decided to use a .357 magnum revolver (Manurhin MR 73) ...
