MEAN Lifetime Warranty

MEAN Ammunition Disclaimer
All MEAN products are designed to function with a wide variety of ammunition and undergo rigorous testing prior to release to ensure reliability and durability. Not all factory loaded ammunitions are compatible with MEAN products, and not all MEAN products are designed to function with all factory loaded ammunition. Extreme atmospheric conditions including, but not limited to, cold, heat, humidity, and altitude may affect the operation and functionality of MEAN firearms and products. Because MEAN relies on select types of ammunition for testing each firearm and upper receiver group before shipment, it therefore cannot guarantee reliable function with all types of factory loaded ammunition, handloads, or reloads. MEAN Lifetime Warranty claims due to ammunition selection will be subject to review by MEAN Tech Support staff and coverage will be determined in MEAN sole and absolute discretion. MEAN recommends testing small quantities of your preferred ammunition for operation and reliability prior to committing to using only one type or brand exclusively. MEAN makes no claims that all ammunition brands, bullet types, or power factors will function without issue in our products/firearms.
Some ammunition is designed to run within certain parameters (i.e.: subsonic, low recoil, P, Super, etc.) and are not designed to function within the configuration of our products. Choosing to use those types of ammunition will require the end user to purchase aftermarket solutions to aid in the operation of our products/firearms. Extreme atmospheric conditions may also require the end user to purchase aftermarket solutions to overcome the conditions. Aftermarket solutions are at the expense of the owner and include, but are not limited to; buffers of different weight, sound suppressors, and/or adjustable gas blocks.
MEAN sells complete firearms and components. If you have received a MEAN product/firearm and are not satisfied, please contact MEAN. If you suspect your product/firearm isn’t factory built, contact MEAN for confirmation.
