      Sig CPO ... A good buy?

      I'm wondering what experience others have had with their Certified Pre Owned Sigs.

      I'm thinking about buying a CPO P228, but read something (on Calguns) about the finish on CPO's not holding up. I know that Sig CPO's come with a 1 year warranty, but does that cover the finish too?

      I got a P226 9MM CPO 3 weeks ago from Bud's. I paid $575 for it. It turned out to be 1990 W. German made P226. I don't think Bud's knew they where getting Germans because after i ordered mine the price went up to $664 for their CPO's. It is in new condition and has 3 matching ser# on it. I couldn't be happier with this pistol. I never dreamed i would get a German made P226. It is more accurate the my 58yr old eye's and hands can shoot it. I am amassed with this pistol and the CPO program. This is my first post and like this forum very much. I tryed to add photos from my desk top of my pistol and can't figure out how to do it. I guess i am to old.

      Pat701,

      I may not be 58 years old, but my soon (Tuesday) to be 47 year old brain has the same problem with posting pictures. I was shown how to do it a few years back on a automobile forum, but for the life of me can't remember how to do it.

      Glad to hear that you were very pleased with your experience with a CPO P226. 3 weeks isn't a long time ... but, any issues with the finish? As for a German Sig, they shoot like butter .... smooth. I've got a W. German P220 and it has yet to fail me. I will never part ways with it.

      By the way ... Welcome to the forum!

      The finish problems were for only a short time several years ago. The CPOs we have seen coming from Sig in the last 4-5 years have been superb! They are a great buy!
