This is a smaller version of the Stop, primarily intended as a 7.65mm pocket pistol for the civilian market. The checkered grips are marked 'FB'. All parts are interchangeable with the Stop, except barrel, mag, grips, grip safety and spring guide.

 It was made alongside its larger cousin from 1912 onward and, in 9mm Short after 1919, but never in 6.35mm, as sometimes suggested. Only the Frommer Liliput was manufactured in 6.35mm.
