Terms and Conditions
5 Year Full Warranty
Firearms and parts manufactured by DPMS Panther Arms are backed by our Five-Year Warranty. Our DPMS manufactured firearms and parts are warranted to be free from defects in materials and craftsmanship. The liability of DPMS Panther Arms under this warranty shall be limited solely to the obligation to repair the defect or replace the firearm/part at its discretion, and to pay transportation and insurance charges for return of the firearm to the owner for a rightful warranty claim. This warranty is transferable for 5 years from purchase of the firearm. Modification of firearm will void this warranty. This warranty does not cover ordinary wear and tear or any damage resulting from careless handling, neglect, repairs or adjustments, improper, substandard, reloaded or defective ammunition, corrosion, or other unreasonable use of the firearm or part.
To initiate a Warranty claim, call DPMS Customer Service at 1 (877) 237-6725. Customer service will issue an R-M-A number to allow for the return of the firearm. Warranty claims must have an R-M-A complete and included in the box with the returned item. All complete firearms need to be returned in full for repair. Replacement parts will not be issued or sent to the customer. The returned item must be shipped using the prepaid label our representative emails to you. DPMS will pay shipping and insurance charges for the return of a returned item to its owner or FFL, if the related claim is a proper claim for warranty work. If DPMS is unable to repair the original serial number item, a new item will be sent out, but must go to an FFL for transfer back to the customer. Another background check will be completed at the time of transfer if the background check reveals an issue. DPMS is not responsible for transfer fees at the FFL.
Under no circumstances shall DPMS be responsible for incidental or consequential damages with respect to economic loss or injury to property, whether as a result of express or implied warranty, negligence or otherwise. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation may not apply to you. DPMS will not be responsible for the results of ordinary wear and tear, careless handling, neglect, unauthorized repairs or adjustments, improper, substandard, reloaded or defective ammunition, corrosion, or unreasonable use. This warranty gives you legal rights, and you may also have other rights which vary from State to State.
