American Tactical Discontinues ISSC Warranty Work

American Tactical Imports (AT) announced today that the company will no longer offer warranty service for ISSC firearms that are not marked “American Tactical, Summerville SC.” This means that the owner of any ISSC firearm that was imported by Austrian Sporting Arms, Legacy Sports International and Anschutz will no longer be serviced by American Tactical Imports as warranty work.

It appears that some kind of contractual dispute has erupted between AT and ISSC over warranty work for the non-American Tactical marked guns. In the announcement by AT, the company stated that ISSC “has denied support to American Tactical despite contractual obligations.”

If you own an ISSC weapon that needs warranty work, you appear to have two options. The first is to contact ISSC directly at this link. Alternatively, American Tactical can work on your gun, though it will be at normal rates for parts and labor. AT advises owners should contact the company’s customer service department for a repair quote.

If you have an ISSC weapon that is marked ‘American Tactical,’ the company will continue to provide full warranty support.

American Tactical manufactures and imports a variety of firearms and related accessories. Two of the company’s more recent gun introductions have been the FX-H Hybrid 1911 and a 9mm AR rifle.

    Ah yes, ye olde inter-company dispute, causing consumers to suffer. Oldest story in the book. Glad I don’t own anything made by either of these companies.

    Buy ‘Murrican!

    Just kidding. I’ve got a bloomin’ NATO arsenal in the safe, with a few Combloc infiltrators. But I tend to do my own maintenance on those so urinary Olympiads among the importers isn’t an issue.

    I was VERY close to buying one of these, but went with a Ruger MK III instead. Looks like I made the right call.

    • Hans Gruber

      Yes and you can send it to Ruger (for free) to be fixed, for free if you ever have any problems.

    This is what you get for purchasing cheap-shit guns. Buy quality firearms and the manufacturors of the quality firearms will be around to make repairs. Well, they will be around until Hillary shut them down. Get out and vote like your very life is at risk.

      We’ve got three ATI pistols that get shot weekly, and we’ve never had any problems with any of them. That’s more than I can say for the Walther PPX that I bought new and finally sold for a loss just to get rid of it, or the DPMS that still didn’t work right after going back to the factory for ‘free’ warranty work.

      And you are 100% correct about getting out to vote!

    What an ugly Glock clone!

    This is only for the ISSC M22 pistol and MK22 Rifle previously imported by other companies. All other American Tactical manufactured and imported goods maintain the same limited lifetime warranty.
