I recently saw an unusual American made .32ACP automatic pistol marked Warner Infallible, It was apparently made in the 1920s. Does anyone know anything about it? Does it have any collectors value?

Hard Ball, the handgun you're describing is the Warner Infallible Pocket Automatic Pistol. This was made by Davis-Warner Arms Corporation, located in Norwich, CT, from 1917-1919. It was chambered in .32 ACP with a 7-shot magazine, blued finish, and hard rubber grips. In excellent condition a Warner Infallible could be worth about $450-$350. Hope this helps!

Be very careful with that pistol. If you do buy it and want to fire it, make sure the breech block lock (cross wise pin in the breech block) is in place and functions properly. If it is missing or broken (I have seen a few that were), the breech block is not fully attached to the recoil springs and will come back in the shooter's face when the gun is fired.
