Kora Flobert

Notes: This revolver is chambered for the odd caliber of .22 CB Cap (known as 6mm Flobert in Europe). This revolver is made in this chambering because a weapon made for such a weak cartridge can be bought and owned without a license in many parts of Europe. The revolver is otherwise a standard sort of rimfire revolver, with a light alloy frame and steel barrel.
