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. The slide has been brilliantly gold plated and engraved with light scroll work.

Rating Definition:

Good as engraved and replated with clear markings, a mostly brown patina on the blue frame and components, and some small scattered dings. The grips are fair with some warping at the bottom edges, and a crack on the left panel at the screw hole. Mechanically fine with a weak firing pin spring.
