What are the best warranties out there?
After reading posts about gun problems, it got me thinking about warranties. Which manufacturers have the most solid warranties? I have been leaning toward the purchase of a Springfield XD9sc, anyone know about their warranty? Who's are good, who's are to be avoided? Please share experiences.

Springfield has a lifetime warrantee. I only had one gun issue sent in the slide they took care of it with no problem. (XD)

I know for sure that Colt and Smith & Wesson take very good care of their customers... and that includes also paying for shipping both ways on warranty issues... with handguns, shipping alone can cost you over $100... these two are awesome companies which stand behind their products honorably for sure.

Most of the big names have lifetime warrantys. They all can promise the sun, moon and the stars. The trick is to find the guns that dont need a warranty.
Taurus is horrible at fixing guns, and they take forever. On paper though, they got the best warranty going. I will never own a Taurus for this reason.

Why would a company like Kimber that seems to make some of the most beautiful guns out there that are very functional only have a 1 year warranty. IMHO 1 year warranty=stay away!

The manuals you can down load for dan wesson say 5 years but Cz says 4 thats weird

Bersa/Firestorms - Lifetime warranty.
I think NAA has a lifetime warranty to the original purchaser also.

Para Ordnace doesn't have a written warranty, but covers the gun for life to the original owner (and sometimes beyond)
The reason they don't have a written policy is explained on their site.

Good service companies with good customer service IMHO are...
Smith and Wesson - Lifetime for original purchaser
Kel-tec - Lifetime for original purchaser but they don't ask and check if you are the original or not
Hi Point - Lifetime for the gun period

To their credit, Dan Wesson tries hard to correct their problem guns, but they will NOT pay for shipping to them, so you're out at least $50-60 just to get the gun back to them.
S&W doesn't ask for ownership information, they just take care of you period.

I sent one Taurus back and it took about 10 weeks, that certainly felt like forever. The work was well done though and they included a free mag and new grips. So that made up for it.

To be honest I think that all the major companies stand behind the product more than the warranty states in legalese, the reason being that in this age of the webnets bad news travels so fast and wide. So although I have no proof I wouldn't be surprised if a 'one year warranty' was actually easily coaxed into being a 'limited lifetime warranty'.
