Re: Infallible 32ACP Pistol
Warner Arms Co. was primarily an importer. They imported Austrian Schwarzlose blow-forward pistols prior to WWI, but with the war was unable to get them, so had those blowback pistols made with a deliberate resemblance to the Schwarzlose. Davis was the designer.
There are, I think, three versions, but I have only two. There is little difference except in the way the bolt is freed from the spring rods. The type shown is not too bad because at least the shooter can see if the pin is not pushed in; the other type just has a little lever. If the bolt is not engaged on the rods, it will come back in the shooter's face when the gun is fired.
My overall impression is not especially good. The design is a bolt in the face looking for a place to happen, and the overall quality is not very good. I consider them strictly collectors' items. I do not recommend disassembly beyond bolt removal.
