Dura-Touch® Coating
Dura-Touch® Coating - Service Process (v2.6.5)
If you have purchased a firearm containing the Dura-Touch® coating, you may be eligible to receive benefits from a class action settlement (the “Settlement”). The Settlement resolves litigation concerning the potential deterioration of the Dura-Touch® coating applied to certain models of firearms. The Settlement establishes a Dura-Touch® Claim Resolution Process, whereby a U.S. customer may send their Dura-Touch® coated firearm for evaluation, and, if necessary, repair or replacement, provided that the Dura-Touch® coating shows signs of deterioration.
For more information regarding the Settlement, please review the following documents:
