Howa Warranty Terms & Conditions

What does this warranty cover?

Legacy Sports International warrants to the original purchaser of a new HOWA rifle from Legacy Sports International in the U.S., that such firearm shall be free from defects in material and workmanship for the duration of time that the purchaser originally owns that HOWA rifle. All HOWA rifles purchased in the U.S. on or after January 1, 2017 are covered by this offer.

How long does the coverage last?

This warranty lasts as long as you own your HOWA rifle. Coverage terminates if you sell or otherwise transfer the HOWA rifle.

What will Legacy Sports International do?

Under this HOWA Lifetime Warranty, the purchaser’s remedies are limited to repair or replacement of the firearm. Legacy Sports International will not provide cash, credit, or refund. Nor will Legacy Sports International return any parts that it replaced. In its sole discretion, Legacy Sports International shall repair or replace the HOWA rifle if the purchaser submits a valid warranty claim. If Legacy Sports International opts to replace the HOWA rifle, Legacy Sports International will keep the firearm that it replaces.

What does this warranty not cover?

Legacy Sports International does not warrant against any type of defect to the firearm that HOWA did not cause, including but not limited to:

  1. Failure to provide proper care and maintenance
  2. Accidents, abuse, or misuse
  3. Barrel obstruction
  4. Hand loaded, reloaded, or improper ammunition
  5. Unauthorized adjustments, repairs, or modifications
  6. Normal wear and tear

Consequential and incidental damages are not recoverable under this warranty. Some states do not allow the exclusion or limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so the above limitation or exclusion may not apply to you.

How do you obtain service?

In order to be eligible for service under this warranty, you MUST register your rifle’s serial number with Legacy Sports International and complete a return authorization form. You can do this by calling our toll-free phone number, or visiting our website.

Once your product is received by our Returns Department, an E-mail notification will be sent to inform you that the product has been received and has been placed into our service system. All firearms serviced will include a service report from the gunsmith who performed the repair work. Each report will detail the issues discovered, if any, what corrections were made, what parts were repaired or replaced and how many test fire rounds were successfully put through the firearm prior to return. Once your item has been serviced, you will receive an email notification that the firearm or product is shipping back to you.

NOTE: Service time frame may vary due to service queue and availability of parts from foreign manufacturers.

How does State Law apply?

This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may also have other rights, which vary from state to state.
