The French, I'm presuming the designer is French, have a long and lovely history of producing whacky firearms.

Greetings Sir C

It seems it used a proprietary cartridge:
"Guycot chain pistol chambered in 6.5mm cartridge similar to the Volcanic cartridge."

Perfessa; Hollow base, loaded bullet with a primer behind?

Yes Indeed Sir C !

"Forgotten Weapons" elaborates:

"It is chambered for a unique 6.5mm caseless rocket ball type cartridge in which the base of the projectile is hollowed out and contains the propellant powder and a primer. Upon firing, the entirely of the projectile exits, leaving nothing to be extracted or ejected from the chamber. Unfortunately for the Guycot’s military aspirations, this cartridge was far too small and underpowered to attract and serious interest and only a few hundred at most were made. These were divided between several models, including a 25-shot pistol, a 40-shot pistol like this one, and an 80-shot carbine."

https://www.forgottenweapons.com/guycot-40-shot-chain-pistol-video/

An 80 shot carbine!  with the oomph of a .22 BP short! Wowsers! How underwhelming!
I would not want to be the poor sod loading those things. Poor Gunga Din.
