This thread has some relevant info but I would call Kolar and verify.

From Kolar's facebook page:

Our goal is reliability. Our guns stand the test of time- with a lifetime warranty. We recommend getting an annual service every 30,000 rounds, but we’ll say it one more time: Lifetime. Warranty.

I started having ejection issues last year. Sent gun to factory. They say my chambers are worn and need to be sleeved at $500 per barrel and it is not covered under that lifetime warranty because “it is a site of normal wear”.

How many rounds have you run through your Kolar?

Wow, that’s a lot of shooting! If you average 30K a year that is 13+ years of shells through the gun. Certainly not trying to be contrary, more asking what is the expectation? Do any of the big name guns cover chamber wear? Is it unusual for the chambers to be shot out at that volume? Just wondering for myself as I plan a long haul for my Kolar.

I’ve been shooting the same Kolar since 2003. It’s an old friend. I have a lot of friends with guns that have just as many shells through them of many brands and nobody has ever had this problem. No other gun maker says lifetime warranty except Kolar so I’m sure nobody else would cover this either. Other than this bizarre chamber problem, my gun has been flawless. One friend of mine is Doug Fuller and his Kolar has documented close to 1 million shells through it and has never had a problem.

Hell, S&W with their Elite Gold not only said lifetime but also the lifetime of an heir you designated..................paper that is printed on is as valuable as Venezuelan currency

They don't have a warranty. If you want a legitimate warranty, it has to been written down. You'll find no mention of it on the Kolar website, much less an actual warranty document. That's what a warranty is: a written guarantee.

I didn't receive a written warranty with my Kolar, but I busted a 20 gauge tube and it was our fault from shooting International powder. When I told them that, they said it didn't matter, that is what a warranty is for. I shipped it on Monday, they fixed it, I got it back on Friday the same week. All free of charge except shipping. Just wanted everyone to know that Kolar does warranty their guns without an actual written warranty.
