WHAT DOES THIS WARRANTY COVER?
Outdoor Sports New Zealand warrants to the original purchaser of a new HOWA rifle in New Zealand, 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 NZ 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 OUTDOOR SPORTS NEW ZEALAND DO?
Under this HOWA Lifetime Warranty, the purchaser’s remedies are limited to repair or replacement of the firearm. Outdoor Sports New Zealand will not provide cash, credit, or refund. Nor will Outdoor Sports return any parts that it replaced. In its sole discretion, Outdoor Sports shall repair or replace the HOWA rifle if the purchaser submits a valid warranty claim. If Outdoor Sports opts to replace the HOWA rifle, Outdoor Sports will keep the firearm that it replaces.
WHAT DOES THIS WARRANTY NOT COVER?
Outdoor Sports New Zealand does not warrant against any type of defect to the firearm that HOWA did not cause, including but not limited to:
Failure to provide proper care and maintenance
Accidents, abuse, or misuse
Hand loaded, reloaded, or improper ammunition

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.
