This is one of those firearms that will have you scratching your head and wondering why.

The Union Automatic Revolver manufactured around 1909-1912, it bears a strong mechanical resemblance to the Webley-Fosbury Automatic (last picture), to the point where the base principles are virtually identical: a top-break revolver frame is mounted in a spring-loaded housing and grip assembly, and on discharge the frame is driven backwards by recoil, revolving the cylinder and re-cocking the hammer. The main deviation is that the hammer is mounted to the housing on the Union and no manual safety is included.
