Sig Warranty Question

If I buy a used Sig rifle or pistol, is it still under warranty?

Can I still register it on Sig's site?

The warranty is only for the original owner. But if the gun was never registered with Sig by the original owner, you can register it in your name and be good to go.

Sig does often does free repairs anyway, though. But it's not going to be a guaranteed thing on a used gun.

The warranty policy states that the warranty is not transferable from the original purchaser (likewise, the CPO warranty is limited to the original purchaser - ie he who buys it once it has been certified & refurbished).

https://www.sigsauer.com/support/warranty/

As to registration, I suspect that process is not specifically tied to the warranty. Manufacturers have long wanted us to register our purchases for reasons beyond warranty validation. But I don’t know for certain in regards to Sig.

I’d be interested in knowing the typical cost incurred by members for any Sig repairs that were not covered by warranty. Offhand, I can’t recall a thread in which someone relayed their experience.

Given the nominal cost of the Sig service plan which is available for non-original purchasers and given the construction of a classic P series, it’s kinda hard to envision a significant cost to repair an out-of-warranty Sig in relation to a true defect. During the service plan work, Sig C.S. might contact the owner and recommend a new barrel (and charge for that part) but I suspect that replacement would be needed due to excessive wear or poor maintenance - which are not covered by any basic warranty.

The two most common way people screw themselves with a firearm warranty claim:

1) "I was using reloads"
2) "I bought the gun used"

Just give them the serial no., describe problems, and refer to the weapon as "your gun"

I've done numerous Glock warranty claims, give them serial, "my gun has XYZ issues."
Never once have they asked "when did you buy it, are you the original owner,etc."

I've been to Glock in Georgia and just a few miles away is a large gun dealer that sells trade in Glocks and its very common for buyers to go to Glock with the used guns and Glock will replace worns springs, worn magazines and do full function tests for no charge. Glock has excellent warranty service.

You’re confusing a customer concession for a warranty repair!

Two different things. 🙂

They treat "warranty" claims the same. That's why I was there, had a issue with an old Gen 19. That gun had many owners and they didn't care they replaced parts got it fixed up and tested it out and it's been working flawless since.
