LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY

This warranty is granted by Smith & Wesson Corp. doing business as Thompson/Center Arms. This warranty is effective from the date of purchase for the lifetime of the original retail purchaser of any factory finished firearm. In order to be eligible for service under this warranty, the original retail purchaser must return a completed authorized warranty card or register online at http://www.tcarms.com/warranty-details/registration within thirty (30) days of purchase of such firearm. With respect to such firearm, this warranty supersedes any and all other warranties.

Thompson/Center Arms brand firearms are warranted to be free from defects in material and workmanship. Any such defects of which Smith & Wesson receives written notice by the original retail purchaser will be remedied without charge within a reasonable time after such notification and delivery of the firearm as provided below.

Warranty claims (in writing) and the firearm or part thereof concerned should be delivered, postage prepaid, to the factory at Smith & Wesson, 2100 Roosevelt Ave., Springfield, MA 01104, Attn: Service Department. In addition, a copy of the bill of sale in the original retail purchaser’s name, or, where applicable, a copy of ATF Form 4473 indicating date of purchase must be included. Please include your physical address and phone number. You must comply with all applicable federal, state and local laws and regulations in the shipment of firearms to Smith & Wesson.

Warranty claims should state the model and, where applicable, the serial number of the firearm concerned and the description of the difficulty experienced. It is recommended that shipments be insured by the owner, since Smith & Wesson will accept no responsibility for loss or damage in transit. Transportation and insurance charges for return to the owner will be paid by Smith & Wesson if the claim is covered by this warranty.

If the work required is not covered by our “Limited Lifetime Warranty” you will receive a quotation which must be authorized by you. No actual work will be done without your approval. Return shipments can be shipped via UPS, FedEx or mail at your cost. Repaired product will be shipped back to you via FedEx requiring an adult signature upon receipt.

UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES SHALL SMITH & WESSON BE RESPONSIBLE FOR INCIDENTAL OR CONSEQUENTIAL DAMAGES WITH RESPECT TO ECONOMIC LOSS, INJURY, DEATH OR PROPERTY DAMAGE, WHETHER AS A RESULT OF BREACH OF THIS WARRANTY, NEGLIGENCE OR OTHERWISE.

Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

Smith & Wesson will not be responsible for:

  • Defects or malfunctions resulting from careless handling, unauthorized adjustments or modifications made or attempted by anyone other than a qualified gunsmith following authorized procedures, or failure to follow the instructions in Safety & Instruction manual that was provided with the firearm from the factory.
  • Use of defective or improper ammunition and/or propellant, corrosion, neglect, abuse, ordinary wear and tear, or unreasonable use.
  • Use of replacement parts, including but not limited to barrels and springs, other than factory or authorized parts.
  • Criminal misuse, negligence, or use under the influence of drugs or alcohol.

Services that were performed by the Thompson/Center Arms Custom Shop and/or that are performed by the Smith & Wesson Repair Department do not void this warranty. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from state to state.

Note: All liability is excluded in the event that the instructions provided in the Safety and Instruction manual that was provided with the firearm from the factory are not observed.
