The above link is a 5 minute, 17 second video that details the world's smallest pistol, called a Kolibri.

It was designed by a watchmaker, only about 1,000 were produced, and fires super small 2.7 MM ammo.

Wow! Interesting little gun. I’d be curious to see how it shoots! I mean, recoil, penetration and and noise must be low, but by how much? But I’m guessing nobody makes any ammo for it?

As an aside, “kolibri” is the German word for hummingbird. The word’s origin is from the word “colibrí,” from the Taíno Indians’ of Puerto Rico. I guess the inventor figured it was as small as a little hummingbird.
