It does, and I think it just depends on which one you like most. I've ordered a number of things that took even longer than six months to get so that time for me wouldn't be the determining factor. The determining factor for me would be which item do I really want the most. Six months to me is a realitively short time but the time afterwards when I own it and use it for years to come would matter more.

Don't worry about getting older and still doing stupid stuff. You'll do the stupid stuff as always, only much slower. Hold my beer and watch this.......

Checking out the warranty on the Chiappa website and it stated you have a one year warranty but get this. You the customer have to pay for shipping both ways. Considering all others I have dealt actually pay for shipping both ways kind of gives me the feeling they just don't stand behind their product. Maybe that might be different iof you purchase through Taylors or Cimmeron but I wasn't able to find anything with regards to Taylors on their website.

.
I think what it might imply is that they were getting a lot of returns and that shipping costs/insured was eating up their margin. It could also mean they were seeing a lot of frivolous returns. Or it's just the way they chose to manage the returns as a business practice.

Maybe take a look at Uberti. My 1873 Colt came with a 5 yr warranty.

Your right it could mean a lot of things however a good number of their competitors are willing to offer better service indicating as I said they are more willing to stand behind their product. So when doing my research and considering whether or not I wish to spend my money on any given product this kind of thing goes into the Con side and not the Pro side of the ledger.
