Warranty/Repairs



DESERT TECH LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY

Desert Tech’s firearm systems have a LIMITED LIFETIME WARRANTY. Desert Tech warrants that its unaltered firearms, conversion kits, and barrels sold within the United States of America and Canada (“firearms”) are free from defects in material and workmanship for the life of the firearm regardless of ownership

In order to help us assist you better, please register your firearm by returning the product registration card included with your purchase, or online at https://deserttech.com/account.php. Desert Tech encourages you to register your firearm so that it can notify you of updates, recalls, and other information for your firearm. Registration is not necessary to invoke the limited lifetime warranty. If you have not already registered your firearm, you will register it as part of making a warranty claim.

It is your responsibility to properly maintain and operate your firearm. Desert Tech firearms are complex precision tools. They are designed and manufactured to operate safely with Desert Tech original parts. You must make sure any parts you install are made for the firearm, installed correctly, and have not been altered. Assembling your firearm improperly or with incorrect or modified parts can cause the firearm to malfunction and may result in a damaged firearm, property damage, personal injury, or death to you and/or others. Desert Tech is not responsible for any resulting losses.

Important: Any addition to your Desert Tech firearm of aftermarket accessories (such as suppressors, triggers, muzzle devices, stocks, etc.) is considered a modification of your firearm from its original configuration, which may void your warranty.

Therefore, Desert Tech disclaims all responsibility and liability for any damage caused to you and/or your firearm as a result of aftermarket accessory use. If an aftermarket accessory causes damage to you and/or your firearm, please address your concerns with the accessory manufacturer.
