Warranty and Returns

Edelweiss Arms Warranty and Return Policy

All items found at EdelweissArms.com are sold as-is without any warranty, expressed or implied.

Edelweiss Arms specializes in antique/used/collectible firearms that have been manufactured decades ago, in some cases, over a century. Unless otherwise noted, these firearms are used and many were military or police issued. Every firearm listed on EdelweissArms.com is thoroughly inspected for condition but are sold as collectible items only and therefore do not carry any warranty.

Except in rare occasions, we do not test fire any of the firearms available for sale, nor are the firearms tested for the ability to load or feed ammunition, Therefore, Edelweiss Arms cannot guarantee every firearm will feed or fire. We strongly recommend that any purchased firearms are inspected by a qualified gunsmith familiar with the firearm before attempting to fire.

If you do intend to fire a firearm purchased through Edelweiss Arms, after a qualified gunsmith has deemed your firearm safe for use, be sure to carefully select your ammunition. Take care to use not only the correct caliber ammunition, but also ammunition that is of the correct specifications with careful consideration to the era the firearm was manufactured.
Example: The Swiss Schmidt-Rubin 1889 is chambered for Swiss 7.5x53.5 (GP90) and predates the later 7.5x55 (GP11); do not use GP11 ammunition with this rifle.

All sales are final on ammunition -- no returns, no exchanges. 

All firearm shipments are insured. If you receive an item that is suspected to have sustained damage during transit, immediately document everything, including any and all damage to the outer packaging as well as the damage to the item itself. Your documentation of the damage is needed to file an insurance claim.
