The Model 6 Unica, designed by Emilio Ghisoni and produced by Mateba, is one of the few semi-automatic revolvers to ever exist, alongside the Webley-Fosbery. On firing, the barrel, cylinder and upper frame recoil by 1/2 inch (12.7mm) on the lower frame, which houses the grip and trigger, cocking the hammer and rotating the cylinder.

Like the prior Emilio Ghisoni designs, the gun fires from the bottom chamber of the cylinder rather than the top, as is almost universally the case in other revolvers, aligning the recoil more directly with the hands of the shooter and somewhat eliminating muzzle flip. The hexagonal cylinder cross-section and lack of top strap are also unusual features in modern firearms.

A rare carbine version is also known to exist.
