The Pistola Concabicato, or "Pistola con Caricato", is a triple-barreled revolver of Spanish origin.[1]

Design Details[edit | edit source]

A break-action weapon, the Pistola Concabicato features three barrels, complimented by a very high capacity 18-shot cylinder, which is reloaded via two-piece moon clip-type loading devices. They sandwich the 18 rounds between a holding plate and a firing access plate, through which the firing pins strike the cartridges.

The weapon has five operational settings, and the selector allows the shooter to choose which firing pin and barrel would be used to fire the gun. It also has the option to fire from all three barrels at once with one pull of the trigger. It also features a mechanical safety that prevents the hammer from hitting any of the firing pins.

Ammunition[edit | edit source]

It uses the low-powered, semi-rimmed 6.35×16mm caliber round, which is traditional for light pocket handguns for the time.

History[edit | edit source]

The Pistola Concabicato was made in the early 20th century, but the gunsmith is unknown. It is of probable Spanish origin, likely made at Eibar. How many revolvers of this type were made is also not known. It appears an example is currently located in Latvia.[2]
