SCCY drops no questions asked replacement warranty for theft, because of sketch
Well it looks like budget gun maker SCCY has dropped their long standing and unique for the industry replacement program for stolen guns because, well, they think they are getting gamed on it.
“Recently we were contacted by the BATFE in regard to an unusual amount of SCCY pistols becoming traced pistols as the result of being used in criminal activity. The unusual part of the traces is not based on sheer numbers but, rather, in the ‘time to crime”. That is, the amount of time it took a firearm to move from its’ sale/transfer to a crime scene. Further research indicated that this phenomena may be an unintended consequence of our theft warranty.
Therefore, although we regret it, the above has led SCCY, as a responsible corporate citizen, to the decision that this program must be drawn to a close. We realize that the majority of people who have contacted SCCY in regard to stolen firearms are honest law abiding firearms owners and this is another instance where a few bad apples have spoiled it for honest citizens. However, in the interest of the public’s safety and welfare we have no choice but to abolish this program.”
