Post by knightrifles » August 28th, 2018, 1:22 pm

Knight® products are sold by us with the specific understanding that we are not responsible in any manner whatsoever for their safe handling or resale under local, state, and federal laws and regulations. Knight® Rifles shall not be responsible in any manner whatsoever for malfunctioning of the muzzleloader, for physical injury, or for property damage resulting in whole or in part from:

1.) Accidental or negligent discharge
2.) Improper or careless handling
3.) Unauthorized modifications
4.) Defective or improperly loaded powder or projectile
5.) Corrosion
6.) Neglect
7.) Other occurrences beyond our direct and immediate control.

This limitation applies regardless of whether liability is asserted on the basis of contract, negligence, or strict liability (including failure to warn). Under no circumstances shall Knight® Rifles be liable for incidental or consequential damages, such as loss of use of property, commercial loss, and loss of earning profits.

Knight® Rifles is not responsible for any alterations to your Knight® Muzzleloader™ or any part thereof after it leaves our control, or for the additional substitution of parts or accessories not manufactured by Knight® Rifles. Any changes made in this product are specifically contrary to our instructions, and we expressly do not authorize any changes to be made after manufacture. Any alteration will result in voiding the warranty.

This limited warranty gives you specific legal rights. You may have others which vary from state/jurisdiction to state/jurisdiction.

No Liability for Consequential Damages. To the maximum extent permitted by applicable law, in no event shall Knight® Rifles or its suppliers be liable for any damages whatsoever (including, without limitation, special, incidental, consequential, or indirect damages for personal injury or any other pecuniary loss) arising out of the use of or inability to use this product, even if Knight® Rifles has been advised of the possibility of such damages. In any case, Knight® Rifles’ and its suppliers’ entire liability under any provision of this agreement shall be limited to the amount actually paid by you for the product. Because some states/jurisdictions do not allow the exclusion or limitation of liability for consequential or incidental damages, the above limitation may not apply to you. This warranty gives you specific legal rights, and you may have others which vary from state to state. For example, some states do not allow the exclusion of limitation of incidental or consequential damages, so this exclusion may not apply to you.

Do not return your muzzleloader to the store.

Most problems can be resolved by simply calling Knight® Rifles at (866) 518-4181. Should your firearm require adjustment, repair, or refinishing, we strongly recommend that it be returned to Knight® Rifles for factory service or contact the dealer you purchased your rifle from.
