All items are shipped FedEx Ground unless otherwise specified, buyer pays shipping.

Restrictions

The customer is responsible to comply with all Federal, State and local laws prior to any purchase from F&D DEFENSE, regardless of whether purchased through the website or other method. “Pre-Ban” firearms and high capacity magazines are unavailable to California, Hawaii, Massachusetts and New Jersey customers, but appropriate modifications can be made by F&D DEFENSE in order to meet those State’s legal requirements for an extra fee.

Reserved Rights

F&D DEFENSE reserves the right to limit production quantities to dealers, agencies and/or retail customers at its discretion unless expressly contracted otherwise. F&D DEFENSE also reserves the right to cancel orders (partially or entirely) at any time without prior notice if conditions require, and in accordance with the below procedures regarding refund of any deposits or partial and full payments. It is agreed that the purchase of any F&D DEFENSE product also constitutes a covenant not to compete with F&D DEFENSE by reverse engineering said product for the purpose of developing and marketing a competing product. Delivery times are estimated at the time of order and do not form a contractual obligation upon F&D DEFENSE. F&D DEFENSE does not accept returns unless authorized by the below prescribed Warranty Terms, or by Federal/State commerce laws.

Warranty:

Limited

F&D DEFENSE guarantees and warrants that the enclosed firearm was manufactured free of defects in material, workmanship and mechanical function. This warranty agreement confers the right to have the subject firearm or its parts repaired, adjusted or replaced as F&D DEFENSE determines is necessary and to pay transportation and insurance charges for return of the subject firearm to owner. Defects in material and workmanship claims apply only to factory built products; third party products are subject to that manufacturer’s warranty and must be claimed through that company.

Transferable

This warranty standard constitutes the exclusive remedies of any authorized customer, as well as its successors.

Lifetime Term

This warranty standard relating to the above described warranty applies for the lifetime of the product.

Exclusions

Except as otherwise provided, the buyer agrees that this warranty is voided and F&D DEFENSE is not liable if the product has been damaged by: accident or neglect, careless handling, abuse or misuse, firing with an obstruction in the barrel, damage through failure to provide reasonable or necessary maintenance, or any use that may be determined as unreasonable by F&D DEFENSE. Unauthorized repair, adjustment, alteration or modification; defective, low quality, hand-loaded, or otherwise improper use of non-standard ammunition permanently voids this warranty. The limited warranty does not apply to normal wear and tear of parts listed as such on the illustrated parts breakdown shown within this user manual.

Accuracy depends on various factors such as bullet weight, type, quality, powder load and type, operator technique, proper maintenance of action components and sights/scopes, environmental conditions and ammunition, among several other variables; therefore, F&D DEFENSE does not guarantee or warrant a specific group size or “MOA” to the customer as an operator; but rather through a standardized setup and procedure system operated and regulated by F&D DEFENSE. All F&D DEFENSE rifles are guaranteed capable of 1.0 MOA accuracy or better upon initial delivery from the factory.

F&D DEFENSE firearms are manufactured to perform properly with the original parts as designed. Your rifle is a complex, dynamic assembly with parts that must relate correctly to each other for proper and safe operation. Assembling a rifle incorrectly or with improper, modified or other manufacturers’ parts can result in damaged, personal injury or death from the firearm’s malfunction. A qualified gunsmith should work on your rifle or at least check any work not performed by a gunsmith prior to use. Failure to properly follow the user manual for maintenance and operation of your F&D DEFENSE firearm could void the warranty partially or entirely. It’s the customer’s responsibility to acquire the latest version user manuals from F&D DEFENSE and apply the manuals’ instructions accordingly.

Components

See the illustrated parts breakdown of the user manual supplied with your rifle. Items listed as “consumable” are not warranted from damage or inoperability due to normal use and wear, but can be purchased as replacement or backup items from F&D DEFENSE. Components listed as “manufactured” or “modified” by F&D DEFENSE are warranted free from defect for the lifetime of the rifle through F&D DEFENSE, and replacement parts may be purchased directly from F&D DEFENSE.

Procedures

In the event warranty or repair work is required on your F&D DEFENSE product, email F&D DEFENSE at [email protected]@fd-defense.com for an RMA number and retreive an Return Material Authorization form here: . When returning a product to F&D DEFENSE for repair or replacement, it is required to print and complete the RMA Form and send in to F&D DEFENSE with your returned item. Product shipment to F&D DEFENSE must be paid for and insured by the customer to:

F&D Defense

RMA #XXXXX

201 W Oak Avenue

Seminole, OK 74868

F&D DEFENSE will cover the return shipping cost for all eligible claims. In the event of ineligible repairs and prior to shipping from F&D DEFENSE, the product owner must submit to F&D DEFENSE the return shipping costs (including insurance) within 30 days after email notification of warranty ineligibility, otherwise the product is subject to claim of ownership by F&D DEFENSE. If repairs are performed by F&D DEFENSE outside the limits of the specified warranty, F&D DEFENSE will charge and collect its normal shop-rate for labor at the rate of $90/hr and the cost of parts prior to returning the product. You will be allowed the opportunity to waive repair service prior to F&D DEFENSE performing any repair work.

Ordering Terms:

Placing an order with F&D DEFENSE through this website creates a purchase agreement (“order”) between the seller (F&D DEFENSE) and buyer. Consideration of this agreement is expressly stated within the information specified on the ordering page and purchase order form including: identifying and contact information of the seller, product to be ordered, price, quantity, payment procedures & requirements, date and verification of agreement to these terms. E-mail confirmation will be sent to the buyer’s email address specifying the order details, excluding shipping/handling costs, FFL transfer fees and taxes (if applicable). If such an e-mail attempt is unsuccessful, F&D DEFENSE will contact the buyer via other provided contact information to confirm the order. If all contact methods fail, the seller and buyer are still presumed to perform on the order; however F&D DEFENSE reserves sole discretion of whether or not to cancel the order until contact has been made.

Refund Policy


No refunds on any purchases. Firearms will be serviced under warranty pursuant to the rest of the terms provided herein.

Payment

Subject to payment terms as specified above, all orders and pre-orders with F&D DEFENSE require a $750 good-faith deposit for FD308 platform models and $1500 for FD338 platform models upon the placing of an order or pre-order; and the remainder (including shipping fee) paid to F&D DEFENSE when final assembly commences, prior to shipment. F&D DEFENSE will notify the buyer when final payment is required. F&D DEFENSE will contact the buyer via email to acknowledge the order and to provide payment options and other order options if not already made available. F&D DEFENSE provides an order acknowledgement form/invoice to the buyer in the event that buyer wishes to change specific options regarding the order; any changes made to the order at this time requires reauthorization from the buyer, although a purchase agreement has already been formed. Any additional payments made prior to a request by F&D DEFENSE will also be considered an addition to the good-faith deposit payment.

Delivery

Delivery for the purchase of these specified products are projected to take place between 3-6 months for FD308 platform models and 6-12 months for FD338 platform models from the date of filling capacity of the specified product’s minimum production quantity. Since it is nearly impossible to accurately estimate when a specified product’s minimum production quantity will fill to capacity, all express or implied projected dates provided by F&D DEFENSE contrary to these ordering terms are not superseding or binding to any party. F&D DEFENSE reserves the right to modify delivery dates for any reasonable purposes. However, every effort will be made by F&D DEFENSE to deliver on or before the projected delivery schedules. It is expressly agreed that F&D DEFENSE and the buyer will continue performing on the order regardless of delivery schedule modification or delays unless expressly agreed otherwise between both parties. All projected delivery dates are not considered a term of the order. Dealers purchasing multiple orders may be subject to a deferred delivery date depending on quantity and manufacturing capacity.

It is requested that buyers refrain from insistently inquiring about the build status of their rifles. F&D DEFENSE builds its rifles in a low-production, high-quality environment and while F&D DEFENSE strives to deliver before the projected delivery date, these firearms will get completed whenever they get completed, no sooner and no later. No amount of insistence will make production run any faster; in fact, any persistent or otherwise aggressive demands from a buyer for delivery may subject that buyer’s order to be moved further down the production list.

Cancelation

Orders may be canceled by F&D DEFENSE if the buyer has not made a deposit payment on the order within 7 days after the order has been submitted to F&D DEFENSE. Customers may cancel their order for any reason and at any time only if the customer submits in writing the reason for cancelation to:

F&D Defense
201 W Oak Ave.
Seminole, OK 74868

Or via email to [email protected]@fd-defense.com. Because payments are immediately applied to the processing and acquiring of materials & parts for the order, cancelled orders are subject to non-refund of all payments made unless otherwise agreed by F&D DEFENSE.

In order to progress on production batches and to continue the development of reliably performing firearms, design enhancements and color availability on third party accessory components are included or excluded upon the sole discretion of F&D DEFENSE. Due to potential supplier shortages, third party accessory components will be supplied in the color black in the event that the buyer’s desired color is not available through F&D DEFENSE’s normal suppliers. Third party accessory color availability is not considered a term of the order, but only the buyer’s preference, and F&D DEFENSE’s deviation from this preference will not void or nullify the purchase order contract or allow the buyer to recoup any damages or losses. Firearm design enhancements that deviate from website, online, retail, purchase order form, print literature or any other form of advertisement are not considered a term of the order and F&D DEFENSE’s deviation will not void or nullify the purchase order contract.

Due to the nature of varying dynamics most new companies face, F&D DEFENSE may be subject to substantial reorganization of facilities, employment, equipment, policy, contract terms, vendors and material suppliers; therefore, F&D DEFENSE reserves the right to cancel or delay any individual or quantity order at any time, with or without reason. Except as provided otherwise to the remainder of this agreement, if an order is cancelled by F&D DEFENSE contrary to the wishes of the buyer, F&D DEFENSE will return the buyer’s order payment.

Repudiation

Orders that are repudiated by the buyer subjects the reclaimation of any damages or losses that F&D DEFENSE may have accrued for processing that order. Failure to submit to F&D DEFENSE the required deposit or payment for an order is considered a repudiation. It is agreed by the buyer that the repudiation of an order allows F&D DEFENSE to recover liquidated damages in that amount of $500 per event, but not limited to any other sustained losses or damages.

Disclaimer & Other Provisions

The customer agrees, under no circumstances, shall F&D DEFENSE be liable for any damages whether general, special, direct, indirect, incidental or consequential including but not limited to lost profits or loss of savings, costs of delay, economic loss or injury to property or to third parties, whether as a consequence of breaching any express or implied guarantee of warranty, negligence or otherwise based on contract, tort, common law or any other theory of liability, statute or regulation. The customer acknowledges potenetial for State or Federal law to prohibit the sale, manufacture, or transfer of F&D DEFENSE products. If the order becomes impossible for F&D DEFENSE to fulfill due to State or Federal regulation, the customer agrees to hold-harmless F&D DEFENSE against all claims and damages, including any full and partial payments on said orders. Since these funds are immediately applied to building the order, they cannot be returned to the customer upon impossibility for F&D DEFENSE to perform.

This agreement shall be governed exclusively by its terms and by the laws of the United States and the State of Oklahoma as applied to contracts without regard to Federal or State rules concerning choice of law. The buyer hereby expressly consents and agrees to exclusive jurisdiction and venue in Seminole County, Oklahoma with respect to any litigation arising out of or relating to this agreement, provided that we may bring an action to enforce our rights in any forum having jurisdiction. In the event we are required to incur any attorneys’ fees or other expenses in connection with enforcing or defending our rights under this agreement, the buyer shall reimburse F&D DEFENSE any and all fees subject to such lawful claims.
