    Hmm, never heard of a auto revolver that does that. I know the an auto revolver automatically rotating the cylinder and cocking the hammer after every shot after the first shot. The only ones "commonly" known are the Webley-Fosbery and the Mateba.

    Didn't find anything on "orbeu", only "Orbea", but it doesn't list an auto revolver.
