C1870 Belgian Mariette Brevette 6 Shot .36 Calibre Percussion Pepperbox Ring Trigger Revolver With Removable Barrels. Sn 14616 - 14616
Guillaume Mariette de Cheratte submitted 22 patents for various weapons in Liege between 1832 - 1851. Regarded as the 'Mercedes' of gun development at the time, this is an excellent example of his work. He signed his pistols 'Mariette Brevette' (see pages 148 to 151 of Pepperbox firearms by Dunlap). This is an excellent Mariette Brevette marked pepperbox ring trigger revolver made circa 1870. The revolver measures 7 ½” overall and the barrel cluster is 2 ½” length. Unlike many pepperbox fixed barrel cluster pistols the Mariette system consists of a cluster of 6 barrels, each barrel being removable by inserting a specially made tool into the muzzle of each barrel. The tool locks into 4 grooves in each muzzle allowing the barrels to be screwed off individually (we do not have the tool). The barrel’s have small proof marks and are numbered 1 to 6. The barrel bores have just staining consistent with age and its loading, cocking and firing actions work as they should. The steel frame has ornate engraved decoration. The revolver has an undamaged ebony grip. NB As an antique percussion pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display.

RARE Liliput, ONE OF THE SMALLEST EVER MADE, German Model 1925 4.25mm Calibre Semi-Automatic Vest / Pocket Pistol By Waffenfabrik August Menz With Mother Of Pearl Grips. A 583 - A 583
The 4.25 mm Liliput pistol is one of the smallest semi automatic handguns ever made, hence its name, derived from the fabled island of Lilliput, inhabited by small people. The Liliput was manufactured by Waffenfabrik August Menz in Suhl, Germany from approximately 1920 to 1927. Overall length of the Liliput is 4 ¼” and barrel length is 1R02;3R60;4 inches. Because the pistol uses a 4.25 mm (.167”) cartridge the Liliput is one of the few semi automatic pistols that can be owned in the United Kingdom without a licence. Ammunition for the Liliput became known as the 4.25mm Liliput and is considered obsolete in the UK (see page 287 of Cartridges Of The World by Barnes). The Liliput features in a number of novels by Alistair MacLean, though he incorrectly calls it the "Luger Liliput". This is an original Liliput pistol . Our example has undamaged Mother of Pearl slab grips and has its original magazine. The blued metal work has even patina. The action is at fault (the slide operates, the trigger moves and the magazine can be removed but it does not cock and dry fire in its present condition). The left side of the slide is marked with model and calibre detail and the left side of the frame with serial number (all illustrated). The price includes UK delivery. NB As an antique obsolete calibre pistol no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. A 583
