Remington Arms just announced a limited lifetime warranty on all Remington firearms purchased on or after Jan. 1, 2016. “We take pride in crafting dependable, quality firearms designed to last a lifetime in the field or on the range,” said Leland Nichols, Remington’s senior vice president and general manager, firearms and accessories. “We’re proud of the Americans who manufacture our products and want to showcase their skill by offering a limited lifetime warranty on all of our firearms.”
This year the company celebrates its 200th anniversary, and no firm lasts that long by offering inferior products. If my Remingtons are any indication, there probably won’t be many returns for work, although the announcement certainly sends an eloquent message. The company hasn’t lost focus on the quality of its products and customers who use them, even after two centuries.
“Remington warrants to the original purchaser of a new firearm from Remington that such firearm shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for the duration of time that the purchaser originally owns that firearm,” the new policy states. “This warranty allows for repair or replacement of any part/s of the firearm, or replacement of the firearm if un-repairable, so long as all other requirements of the warranty are fulfilled. All products purchased January 1, 2016 or after are covered by the limited lifetime warranty offer.”
Those things not covered by the warranty include: improper care or maintenance, abuse, misuse, accidents, barrel obstructions, hand loads, reloads, improper ammo, unauthorized adjustments, repairs or modifications and normal wear and tear. For more information, the new warranty can be found here.
