Default automatic revolver?

there have been two automatic revolvers in history that I know of: the Webley-Fosberry (.455 Webley) and Mateba model 6 Unica (.357 Magnum) . does anyone know if they actually work well enough to merit buying one?

I have been looking for a Mateba Model 6 Unica chambered in .454 Casull. Rare!





I have not shot one but am very intrigued with it's action. automatic revolver? - Revolver Handguns

PS I think the Webley-Fosbery is stone ugly!!!!!

Get her dirty, then clean her so she starts to respect you. When her trust is complete, she will serve you well for a lifetime!

I expect the first part of your question could be best answered as they work well considering what they are and why no major firearm company went down that path. Buying one is solely based on the collectible value. I'd like to have one, hard to find and the $$ is more than most will spend.
