My wife is giving me her S&W .38 Bodyguard and just bought a Kimber .380 Micro CDP. How do the warranties on these two guns compare?

When it comes to firearms, I've never considered a warrantee in my decision. Buy quality, and just deal with any rare issue that is unlikely to occur.

Kimber's policy is to guarantee their guns for one year.

Smith & Wesson guarantees their guns for the lifetime of the original owner.

Glock - one year
Sig - lifetime
Beretta - three years

I've seen a lot of advertisements recently for a gun manufacturer in Daytona Beach called SCCY. They really caught my attention with their warranty. If the gun is ever breaks, they'll fix it or replace it free of charge, no questions asked. If the gun is ever lost or stolen, they'll replace it. The warranty stays with the gun, not necessarily the original buyer, and lasts a lifetime from the date of purchase. A customer couldn't ask for anything more.

Smith & Wesson has a lifetime warranty on their firearms and that's great to know since I just purchased my first shooter from them...

Ruger, which I have many has the same policy and I only had to use the warranty one time and got the gun back in 7 days..

I had a Taurus Judge for a couple of months and used their warranty service which is also lifetime but their service wasn't as good as what I'm accustomed to..

Now Kimber....their warranty is one year, but they will certainly take care of it past the 365 days and I have heard they have even warrantied their firearms to a second owner on certain occasions..Their customer service is awesome...

Then again....the four that I own have never been back to Yonkers for a single thing and performed flawlessly right out of the grey plastic case that they came in...

Enjoy your new Kimber and if you ever have an issue don't hesitate to call them....
