Davidson Defense offers a 30-day return, refund, and exchange policy. You must email or call customer service to obtain an RMA number prior to any return, refund, or exchange. If you fail to obtain an RMA number prior to returning the product, the product is not subject to refunds or exchanges and will be shipped back to the customer. All returns must include the original order number, receipt, or invoice. It must also include the billing address, shipping address, contact phone numbers, contact emails, and the RMA number. Photo of video evidence may be required before the return is authorized. Returns, refunds, and/or exchanges may take up to two weeks, not including transit times, for processing after we receive the product(s). Return shipping costs will be the responsibility of the returning party with the exception of the wrong item being received or on warranty exchange during the first 30 days after delivery. Items returned for warranty will only be replaced or exchanged, not refunded.
After 30 days from the time you receive your order, returns on items that are unused and in the original packaging, ready for resale will be accepted and subject to a 15% restocking fee. If the product packaging has been altered, including written on, opened, damaged, or the product is damaged, installed or used, the item will be rejected and/or subject to a 25% restocking fee. This includes missing the original box or packaging or returning the item without outside wrapping to protect original boxes, packaging or parts, accessories, and instruction. The all items that are included on the RMA must include ALL items that were shipped with the individual product. If items are missing the refund will be assessed and partially refunded or not refunded at all. Shipping charges and/or shipping costs are not subject to refunds.
Products not subject to returns include serialized parts, custom configured products, used products, special orders, and items sold “as-is”, “no returns”, or “used”. No items may be returned after 60 days for refund or credit. Refunds will be made against the original credit card used for payment. If the original credit card is no longer valid, an alternative form of payment will be made.
All items being returned for warranty exchange must follow the above policy in regard to obtaining an RMA number and information requirements. Davidson Defense will issue a postage paid return label only for warranty returns within the first 30 days after delivery. On items returned for warranty after 30 days, shipping costs must be paid by the returning party and a check or money order for return shipping of $10.00 must accompany the items being returned. If the funds are not received with the return, Davidson Defense is not required or obligated to honor the warranty exchange, and subsequently we will not ship a replacement part to you.
We offer a limited warranty on materials and workmanship in parts that are NOT considered normal wear type items. The warranty timeline is 30-days after delivery for unassembled products and 60-days after delivery for assembled products. Therefore, normal wear items include things that are normally replaced periodically or parts that may wear out during normal use such as firing pins, extractors, and barrels. This warranty DOES NOT include ANY part that has been modified, abused, disassembled, or altered in any fashion. This includes modifying for install, painting, abuse, or taking items apart that are not normally user serviceable beyond normal field stripping, such as scopes, sights, and barreled uppers. Using Loktite or other thread locking compounds or non-standard gunsmithing tools such as a pipe wrench on parts automatically voids the warranty on those parts. Our returns department reserves the right to inspect ALL returns and determine a value, if any, for replacements and refunds.
Our warranty covers defects in manufacturing and materials only. This warranty DOES NOT include dropping, hitting, abuse, use of non-standard or reloaded ammunition, parts illegally modified, and damage incurred by the user on installation, modification, assembly, or damage caused by the ammunition.

Warranty Policy for Builds:

The severity of any and all blemishes/cosmetic defects will be determined by Omega Tactical Distribution.

If the defect is on the visible or outer portion of the assembled upper build, the product may be shipped back to Omega Tactical Distribution after obtaining an RMA, for repair which may involve replacing the damaged piece or fixing the defect.
Repair/replacement of the blemished/cosmetically defective products depends on the severity and/or the location of the defect. The customer must contact Omega Tactical Distribution within 30-days of receiving the product for any sort of compensation on blemished products. This date will be determined by the date that the tracking number that is provided by the carrier or delivery service shows delivery. This date is non-negotiable.

The method of delivery for Free Shipping is USPS Priority.
Please note that delivery time is also based upon “business” days.
Risk of Loss:
All items purchased from Davidson Defense are made pursuant to a shipment contact. This means that the risk of loss and title for such items pass to you upon our delivery to the carrier. As such if an order is lost in shipping, damaged, or is addressed wrong, it becomes a liability to you.
Because carriers are no longer offering delivery guarantees without shipping insurance, it is highly recommended that you purchase this with your order. If you choose to forego shipping insurance the risk of loss passes to you. Although we file claims on missing and/or damaged packages, the default amount that an order is covered is $100. This is only if we win the claim.
Although you assume the risk of loss when product is passed from our facilities to the carrier for any damaged or lost items, we are happy to file a claim for you. If you file a claim on your own, we are not obligated to replace or refund any orders. ALL claims only have 2-5 business days to be reported to the carriers and a claim officially filed. If we file a claim on your behalf, we must wait until the claim is processed by the carrier to determine whether your order is eligible to be reshipped or replacement parts will be sent to you. Often carriers, especially the USPS, will require the customer to bring in damaged packages or product to fully process your claim. If the customer fails to comply with these requirements, the order will not be compensated in any way from Davidson Defense or its associates.
If you need to cancel an order, please contact customer service as quickly as possible. Depending on the reason for cancellation a 1.75% fee may be assessed to cover any merchant fees we are charged. If a shipment is refused without cancelling it first, a 25% restocking fee and our shipping costs will not be refunded back to the customer.
If a customer files a chargeback but keeps the product, we have the right to collect upon the product that is in the customer’s possession. We generally handle collections in house, but at times will hire a third party to do these collections. If an order that has a serialized part on it is charged back to us and the customer is still in possession of the serialized part, this is considered theft and is officially a stolen item and will be reported to the authorities and an official ATF report will be filed.
Refunds and Illegal Products:
Refunds are generally issued within three business days after we receive the product or cancel an order. Some may take longer depending on the time of year. If a customer orders a product that is deemed illegal in their city, county, or state, the order will be cancelled, and store credit will be issued. If for any reason an order needs to be cancelled and we cannot get a hold of the customer, we will issue store credit. ALL Credova orders that need to be refunded for any reason, without exception will be issued store credit.
Please not that we DO NOT ship serialized lowers to the state of California. If a serialized product is purchased and we have to cancel the order, store credit for that portion of the order will be issued.
It is up to the customer to provide us with a Transfer Dealer’s FFL. A copy of the Transfer Dealer’s FFL can be sent to our Fax (801)228-1888 or Email [email protected] Orders older than thirty business days will automatically be cancelled with a 25% restocking fee.
