Description:

Manufactured in the 1920s, the Menz Liliput is one of the smallest semi-automatic pistols ever manufactured, chambering an equally minuscule centerfire cartridge. (The Kolibri is the only smaller automatic pistol that writer can recall). Fixed sights, with ""LILIPUT" KAL. 4,25/Modell 1925" on the left side of the slide, "crown/N" proofmarks, and checkered grips with "4,25" medallions. Fine scroll engraving is present on the slide and the edges of the frame, with the left side of the slide monogrammed "LP".

Rating Definition:

Fine, with 70% of the gold finish, showing a smooth gray patina on the slide and the high edges, with some light handling marks and spotting. The grips are very fine, with a few minor dings. Mechanically excellent.
