Purchasing a used Yukon or Pulsar product

When purchasing a used Yukon or Pulsar product, it is important to obtain a copy of the original receipt, and ensure that the serial number has not been removed or tampered with.

Usually product warranty repairs take between 8-12 weeks, from our receiving the product, to the product being returned to the customer. Products are sent to either Scotland or Lithuania for repair. Occasionally, product warranty repairs can be held up for a number of reasons outside of our control. We accept no responsibility for unexpected delays.
