Heckler & Koch Firearms Purchased After January 1, 1998

All new Heckler & Koch Inc. firearms purchased after January 1, 1998, are warranted to the original retail purchaser only for the lifetime of the said original retail purchaser. In the event that this original retail purchaser, at the time of the original purchase, shall donate this firearm to another person, the donee must be listed on the warranty card (or donee’s name must be submitted during the online warranty registration), and the warranty card must be returned at that time to Heckler & Koch Inc.

Upon completion of the online warranty registration or receipt of the warranty card indicating the name of the said donee, this warranty shall be extended to the lifetime of the said donee. This warranty applies only if the firearm was purchased from an Authorized Heckler & Koch Inc. Dealer in the United States, and it was imported into the United States and distributed by Heckler & Koch Inc. to an Authorized Heckler & Koch Inc. Dealer. This lifetime warranty explicitly excludes sales to government institutions or law enforcement agencies.
