Mateba MTR-8

Mateba, a contraction of the Italian words Macchine Termo-Balistiche, was an Italian machine manufacturer based in Pavia, Italy. It is better known for its low-barrelled revolver pistols that it produced under the leadership of Emilio Ghisoni. After a change in ownership and poor sales, the Mateba company closed in 2005, but restarted in 2014 in Montebelluna.
