First I've ever heard of that. The real purpose of registering with HK is for warranty purposes. You aren't required to and the warranty still applies if you don't. It's just slightly easier if you have to send something in for warranty work if they already have the purchase information than having to send it.

Why would you believe HK would notify your state, or anyone else for that matter, that you registered a new purchase for warranty?

Are you sure you've ever bought a gun before, because this is a strange question for anyone with even a minimal familiarity with buying a gun.

The free state of Florida in all its glory frowns upon registration.

I was merely asking if I should do the warranty registration via the HK webpage for my purchase.

I'm not saying register with local Leo's and city. Just if I should register with HK warranty via their webpage? :) that is all




On a different; doesn't the form we fill out when making a purchase of a new firearm get registered automatically? Just curious.
Thank you

He was asking about registering for the warranty and commented that the act of buying a new weapon results in a defacto (albeit hard to access) registration via the 4473 that gets filled out at the LGS.

YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The paperwork we fill out when making a new firearm purchase at gun shop. Don't this info go to state police? And then they have too make a phone call to the state? At least in my zone they do.

So doing the warranty via HK website is fine? (This is not registering it.......is it??) it's just a warranty? Or is there a hidden agenda ?

Thank you Steve in 29 palms, for clarifying this for me.

When you register your new purchase with the manufacturer (HK, Glock, Smith & Wesson, Colt, etc) is for warranty purposes and recalls. That's the reason why is not required but recommended.

This process is only for the manufacturer then?

I registered mine. Although when I sent in the VP9 the CS reps made it sound like they don't bother looking up or requiring purchase info. Basically they told me if it's HK and not obviously abused/modified they'll take care of it. Of course that could change at any time, so registering can't hurt.

This would be my answer. I haven't registered anything yet and don't plan on starting now.
