    We have searched for the rare decay W± → π± + γ in 16.7 pb-1 of data taken in proton-antiproton collisions at ∫s = 1.8 TeV with the CDF detector at Fermilab. We find one event consistent with the expected signal, and estimate the background to be 2.6 ± 1.0(stat) ± 1.3(syst) events. Without background subtraction, we find the ratio of partial widths to be Γ(W± → π± + γ)/Γ(W± → e± + ν) ≤ 2.0 × 103 at the 95% confidence level.
