When I buy new I look for a lifetime warranty. The reason is being retired on a fixed income ammo considerations. I don't get to the range but maybe once a month. I have 5 rifles and 7 handguns and don't put lots of rounds thru them. So if something is going to break down the road I probably have missed out on the warranty by time. This is what attracted me to Taurus. With their new 1 year only warranty I'm not sure any more.
