The Tiny Little 4.25mm Lilliput Pistol,
Produced between 1920 and 1927 by August Menz Waffenfabrik of Suhl, Germany, the Lilliput pistol was one of the smallest production semi automatic pistols in history. The pocket sized pistol was named after the fictional island of Lilliput, which in Jonathan Swift’s Gulliver’s Travels was home to a race of tiny human beings. It is good name for this tiny little peashooter, which has a barrel length of 1.75 inches and an overall length of 4.25 inches. Most incredibly, it fired a very tiny centerfire cartridge called the 4.25mm Lilliput (roughly .17 caliber).
The Lilliput in 4.25mm was not very popular, as the ammunition was rare and barely powerful enough to bring down a tin can. In 1925 August Menz introduced the Lilliput in .25acp and .32acp as well. The Lilliput pistol would go down in history as the pocket pistol of choice for an infamous German leader named Adolf Hitler, who carried a .32 caliber model in a concealed pocket in his pants along with a Walther PPK.
Today the Lilliput pistol is a very rare firearms that is high sought by collectors, especially in 4.25mm, a caliber which hasn’t been manufactured for over 70 years.
