Thread: Matebas?

    Matebas?

    Anyone own these odd type of revolvers? I myself think they are ugly as sin, but I would think that since they fire from the bottom cylinder instead of the top then they would probly have less muzzle flip. Oh well, I just think the concept of a semi auto revolver is just plain weird.

    Are these special order items? I have NEVER seen them in person. How reliable are they?

    Looks pretty big. I like big guns. But I also have never seen one in person. Somebody is bound to have one. Sure would like a range report.

    I notice in the photo that the line of the barrel is still above the grip, so muzzle flip wouln't be affected much, if at all. In order to reduce upward muzzle flip, the line of the barrel must be below the grip, as on the Russian "hacksaw" pistol of some years back.

    Unless the line of the barrel is in line with the grip (opposing forces) Muzzle flip will be present.

    Try holding a gun with substantial recoil upside down and with sights to either right or left. The gun will flip (rotate) towards the direction the sights are oriented.

    And, in order to hit targets with the gun rotated, the point of aim must be rotated accordingly. If your gun is sighted for a six o'clock hold, you must use a twelve o'clock hold if the gun is inverted in order to maintain any degree of accuracy.

    Semi-auto?

    What does it do? Cock the hammer and rotate the hammer?

    Surely it does not eject the empty?

    From what I read, it cocks the hammer after the shot and rotated the cylinder. I do not believe it ejects anything.

    If these things were sold at the avg gun store, I'd buy one.

    Why? A .357 Magnum tha cocks the hammer and rotates the cylinder, but lacks a top strap? I don't think so.

    Even with a low mounted barrel, that top-strap takes a lot of tension. Even a moderate recoiling cartridge such as the .357 Magnum can stretch that top strap. I had that happen with a Colt SAA once.

    Hey, w/o having one, I can't comment any further. Since the barrel is actually on the bottom of the cylinder, I would assume that there is less pressure/force being exerted in that area.

    But, the grip is still below the barrel.

    Sorry I don't share your enthusiasm, but the thing leaves me cold.

    Maser, sorry but I've got to disagree with you..............they are much uglier than sin. If they were a hundred bucks, I'd be tempted, but too many other good guns out there. My .02 worth.

    Well, maybe there are some problems - hence, why one never sees them at gun stores.

    I just think it looks cool because it is different.

    thats what im sayin.thats the first picture ive seen of one with the cylinder open.the meteba becomes an open top with no structure,ie strenth.bad idea.that gun wont shoot alot of hot rounds .they are cool looking however.

    I shot three rounds through one this weekend. It was pretty sweet and the recoil of the .44 was about even with my 4" .357 ported Tracker.
