    Warranty from Local Dealers?

    When purchasing from local dealers, is it normal for them to have a policy that all sales are final. No buy back or trade in if the firearm is defective from the manufacturer?

    Can't say if it's normal or not as it's their business and can run it any way they choose, but definitely not a place I'd do business with. Any place that says "All Sales Are Final" says to me that all they care about is getting your money that one time and aren't interested in making you a long-term customer. There are plenty of local shops and even more on-line so poor customer service and policies do not have to be tolerated by the consumer.

    It's not uncommon for dealers to have that policy. They can pretty much run their business the way they want provided they are operating within the law. I believe there are some dealers who will go out of their way to satisfy a customer including taking back a defective firearm and carrying the burden of dealing with the manufacturer.

    That policy is not uncommon. I try to purchase most of my firearms from a dealer that obtains them from the distributor Davidsons ( galleryofguns.com ).

    Davidsons has an excellent warranty that replaces a defective gun with a new one. I know they have also given the purchase price back when the customer had lost faith in the particular model/brand.

    I personaly had a defective one swapped out for an equivelant but different brand.

    Plus 1000.

    My dealer gave me 'tounge-in-cheek' grief about a recent purchase (brand hate).

    I looked at him and told him "it's a Davidson's. IT brakes? YOU send it back, I get another one" while I pointed at the 'Gun Genie Gold Dealer' banner.

    'No problem sir!'

    Davidson's rules.

    was just checking that site out, and I get the instant quote, and the stock watch. easy enough. but almost every gun I look up says its allocated, not in/out of stock. what does that mean? they have one but someone has put a deposit on it?

    Allocated means 'good luck'. Call Davison's and pick their brain a smidge. They may have a dealer list, and, they can have you call or visit one to get on a wait list.

    Stock Watches are just that...ya get an e-mail when it arrives in stock. Be quick though!

    I like Davidson's a lot. The quotes I get from local dealer's on Gun Genie are usually a lot less than MSRP. They ship ovenight and you get your firearm fast with a l/t wrty for defects.

    In Gun Genie, what does ďallocatedĒ mean?
    Answer: An allocated item is one where the demand for it far out steps the supply of an item, therefore enabling Davidsonís to sell all receipts of the item in less than a week and many times in a matter of hours. It is Davidsonís goal to offer allocated items to the dealers that are supporting our company with purchases of non-allocated products. Therefore, they are not available for commitment to consumers, as the dealers may have previous commitments to their valued customers.
