I would like to know what kind of warranties most manufacturers have.
specifically Springfield, Kimber, and HK. I heard springfield has "lifetime warranty" What does this mean exactly? And does it apply to all of their guns? If something breaks simply because it is worn down 50 years from now will they honestly replace it? If I am having feeding problems of FTF for some reason thats gun related will they just fix it? etc.
I would like to hear about any manufacturer and any experience you have had with anyones customer service. thanks!

There was a post about this but here ya go
Kimber 1 year
Wilson 1 year but truthfully lifetime
Smith Wesson lifetime
As for what a lifetime is they will fix or replace any parts that break wear or the gun starts shooting weird no grouping or goes full auto for life..
They will fix feed jams FTF FTE etc etc
only Exp where i have had to use was Smith on a 1911SC they didn't take care of me but i could tell from talking to the techs on the phone they were having a lot of problems when the 1911's first hit and couldn't fix them
Take it back ruger sent me a part
and Remington STiffed me on a new gun with a warped stock
I still buy Smith wheelies just not their autos
I don't usually buy Remington
Some places will send ya small parts to repair on your own .. other like HK require the gun no matter what is the problem

I have heard the HK customer service isn't great. Ditto GLOCK. Never had to use either *Knock Knock*
Owners of Kel-Tec extol their warranty, and the way KT honors it.
A witty saying proves nothing.

Yes i have heard the Same on Hk to non LEO

Sig = Lifetime if you don't do one of the 30 or so things that voids the warranty.
No handloads, no reloads, obstructed barrel (firing after a squib without clearing), any alteration, including cosmetic changes, damaged (not sure what qualifies), must be well maintained, no repairs by a non-Sig armorer

does anyone know what voids a springfield warranty? (im probably going with them)
June 25th, 2007 06:54 PM
Squibs blowning it up
probley replacing parts altering certain things
As long as you don't do anything dumb with it ya should be ok

im looking at laser grips for the EMP. i heard the right safety has to be shortened somewhat for it. something like that wouldnt void it would it?
June 25th, 2007 07:01 PM
It could but more than likely not especially if you tell them why it was shortened or went to a single sided

I sent my P229 back to SIG after a broken extractor (25K rounds)
They returned the slide to me in less than 2 weeks, with a new extractor, firing pin, new springs, etc...
I have zero complaints about SIG

Speaking of warranties:
Does anyone know if you have to have the sales slip for the kel-tec lifetime warranty?
June 26th, 2007 05:38 AM
here is an example of the springfield warranty/shop work
read this page first
then this page
only ended up costing him 150 plus shipping
If springfield will do that they have my future buisness.
To those that paid for my freedom,
I WILL NEVER FORGET.
As with all statements I've made and All that I will make, please check your local laws to verify accuracy. (and if i'm wrong let me know as I like to be right in the future) After all I'm just some goofball posting on an internet forum.

OBTW, the Sig "Lifetime" warranty only applies to the ORIGINAL owner, for pistols manufactured AFTER 2005. Buy a used Sig = no warranty, generally.

Basically, I think Sig's warranty and CS are abysmal, especially considering the base price of their products.
S&W's warranty is the model by which all others need to be judged.

Removing the grips voids the warranty huh? thats pretty Cheesy as said count the cost to get into a sig
June 26th, 2007 11:41 AM
fknra: holy crap! I cant believe that they, not only managed to fix his gun, but did all that for so little. if i were them i woulda been like.. uh yea right buddy, buy a new one.
