Warranty Conditions

  • The customer is required, at the time of purchase, to properly examine the new product, including the documentation accompanying it, and to familiarise him/herself with its handling. In particular the warranty certificate must be completed accurately with the sale date of the product recorded and be accompanied by a proof of purchase (receipt).
  • The customer has the right of remedy of a defect occurring at any time during the warranty period either by Česká zbrojovka a.s., as the producer, or by any Česká zbrojovka a.s. Authorised Service Agent, regardless of where s/he purchased the product.

  • In the event that the claimant acquired the product from a previous owner, within the warranty period, and therefore his/her name is not recorded on the original document, s/he can establish a claim on the basis of submitting an agreement on the assignment of rights of warranty which s/he has concluded with the original customer.
  • Česká zbrojovka a.s. can, in the event of repudiation of a claim, seek redress for expenses incurred in connection with the complaint procedure from the claimant.

Settlement of a claim

  • The period for the settlement of a claim is within 30 calendar days from the date of the claim being made. Making a claim is understood as actual assignment/delivery of the product to the authorised service or to Česká zbrojovka a.s., except as agreed otherwise with the claimant.
  • Every warranty repair must be recorded on the warranty certificate.
