(certified pre owned)= Guaranteed used
Used for 1/2 the price does not bother me it may bother you and if so I suggest that you only buy new

Sig Sauer CPO - Certified Pre Owned P229, 40S&W

Includes Sig Sauer 1 year factory warranty !!
These pre-owned Sig Sauer pistols have been Factory Certified after passing the Sig Sauer five point factory certification process. No certified pre-owned Sig Sauer pistol leaves the factory without the approval of the expert Sig Sauer armourers. Before receiving its factory (CPO) certified pre-owned status each pistol is:
1. stripped 2. refitted withoriginal factory parts where needed 3. cleaned and lubricated 4. function tested and hand inspected by a certified Sig Sauer armourer.

Thanks for being a RAY OF SUNSHINE
My guess is he means that "certified used", it's used, but with a guarantee from the seller? Don't know, just how I read it.

Anyway, glad you've got something new to play with. :D I buy a lot of mine used with NO guarantee. In fact, 3 of my current 5 Taurus handguns are used. They've all been good scores for me. :D I bought two of 'em from dealers at gun shows and one from a fellow Taurusarmed member recently. I'm quite happy with all of 'em.

Enjoy the "new to you" handguns. I own several previously pleasured firearms, none with a guarantee, that would be nice, but everyone is a shooter and I wouldn't sell them for what I gave.

Forget the "used" vs "new" stuff and tell me more about this contest where you might win enough to bring home 2 nice pistols. The only contests around here the top prize is a new hat.
Congrats on adding 2 fine pistols to your collection.

I have bought several of the Sig certified pre-owned pistols and they are a fantastic buy. Everyone I've had looked brand new, they have their springs changed out and have been checked by Sig smiths which even gives them a bit of an edge on factory new in my book. Congrats on a great buy!

I'm not besmirching the quality of the gun.
I'm just equating it to the auto phenom of 'certified'.
Back when I was younger we had new cars and used cars.
Then some marketer came up with a new category and called it 'certified'.
To me I equated it to checking the oil and tire pressure before putting it on the lot.
I doubt there is any real difference between new/use guns other than appearance.

Certified preowned by SIG actually means something. I have a S&W 686 that has passed through several owner's. And it is a keeper, I had my gunsmith go over it and did a trigger job on it. It is one of my most accurate guns I own. When buying used just know what to look for and have it checked over by gunsmith if you have any concerns.
CONGRATULATIONS on a great purchase!
