Zippo lighter guns are small handguns fashioned from Zippo lighters. Background

The lethal items are not sanctioned by Zippo and the manufacturer behind the adapted lighters is unknown.

Zippo lighters are a notable collectible in their own right, and are famed for their flame-producing abilities when compared with disposable lighters.

The firearm's 6mm cartridges can be found in the portion of the lighter where one would normally find the flint. The gun is fired by rolling the flint-striking wheel.

How much are Zippo lighter guns worth?

Due to their rarity, the market prices are high for such pieces. One specimen sold for $6,810 at a Gregg Martin Auctions sale in 2006.
