Off the top of my head probably a Browning Baby or Bauer in .25 ACP. In a modern pistol, maybe the Kel Tec P32.

I shot a Kel-tec P-3AT (LE only in CA) belonging to a sheriff's deputy and wow, it was very thin and small (it fit inside my palm and had a fairly smooth trigger too). And P-32 is even smaller.

The Seecamp is right up there (or should I say down there) in terms of size, if not weight.

2mm pinfire, believe there might have even been a 1mm pinfire, the local museum in my home town had an entire collection of them, and they worked, but then again how good is that small of a gun.

I've never heard of a pinfire autoloader.

The tiny pin-fire guns were made to shoot blank ammo only.
They were mostly all single-shots and a few revolvers.

The Semmerling is probably the smallest ever (in length). Not presently in production, special order only.

If your looking for the smallest presently in production it's the Seecamp.

these guns are good for self defense from your local rabid raccoon or cat.

you might as well throw a rock at 'em, the bigger mass might do more damage.
