Certified Pre-Owned Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER
The legendary SIG SAUER quality is what law enforcement professionals around the world rely on for When It Counts. The To-Hell-And-Back-Reliabilityâ„¢ of a SIG SAUER is what makes it stand out from the rest.
Now you can own a SIG SAUER pistol that’s been “Duty Tested†protecting communities around the county. Traded in by law enforcement agencies for new SIG SAUER pistols, these pre-owned SIG SAUER pistols have been Factory Certified after passing the SIGARMS Five-Point Factory Certification process. And no Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER pistol leaves the factory without the approval of one of our expert SIGARMS armorers. That’s your guarantee of the legendary SIG SAUER quality and it’s all backed by a one-year factory warranty.
Accept no substitutes. Ask your dealer about Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER pistols.
What is SIGARMS Five-Point Factory Certification? Each Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER is field stripped, refitted with original factory parts where needed, cleaned and lubricated, function tested and hand-inspected by a certified SIGARMS armorer.
Does the Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER come with a warranty? Yes. Each Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER comes with a one-year warranty from SIGARMS.
Do all used SIG SAUER pistols come with a warranty? Only the Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER pistols carry a one-year warranty backed by SIGARMS. Make sure the pistol you purchase is a Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER.
How will my Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER be packaged? Each pistol is repackaged in a SIGARMS lockable pistol case. It is tagged with our “STOP†tag and wrapped in plastic for protection. Included in the case will be an owner’s manual stamped “PRE-OWNED†in red, a cable lock, and a second magazine.
How do I know I’m getting a Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER? Our Factory Certified Pre-Owned pistols now ship with a blue grip band identifying it as a Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER. Some pistols have already shipped without these grip bands so look in the pistol box for the owner’s manual. If it is stamped “PRE-OWNED†in red and comes with the blue SIGARMS cable lock then you know it is one of ours. You will also find our standard “STOP†tag instructing the owner to read the owner’s manual. This “STOP†tag will also be stamped “PRE-OWNED†in red on the back of the tag.
Are high-capacity magazines included? Each Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER pistol comes with 2 standard capacity magazines.
Do these pistols feature night sights? The Factory Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER pistols will come with standard contrast sights.
What is the condition of a Certified Pre-Owned SIG SAUER> The condition of a Pre-Owned SIG SAUER pistol will vary depending on the amount of wear, such as that caused by a holster or rings, and that condition will be reflected in the retail price. Pistols that have shown excessive wear on the slide when received at the factory will often have the slide refinished in our rock hard Nitron® finish.
Are the frames refinished? The alloy frames of a SIG SAUER pistol are hard anodized for durability and performance. Though a pistol frame may show minor “dings†or ring wear, the frame is not refinished as part of our Factory Certification process.
Does SIGARMS replace worn internal parts? Absolutely. When going through the Five-Point Factory Certification process, the SIGARMS armorer looks for worn parts. When worn parts are discovered they are replaced with original factory SIG SAUER parts.
My Pre-Owned SIG SAUER has holster/ring wear. Can I send it back under the warranty to be refinished? Holster and ring wear are not covered under the one-year factory warranty.

Unquestionable new/used the best handgun I have ever owned! Proud owner of a flawless P220 .45ACP. I have a friend who prefers to buy used Sigs do to the trigger being broken in already, I prefer to run the rounds myself to "break in" the trigger :) Hart

Great Guns Fer Sure

:full: :full: :full: :full: :full:

I voted no, but not because reliability issues, but 'cause I like new guns myself, I like to feel the breaking period and be the first owner of my guns.

My Maadi is used, it's the only used gun that I have, if the gun in question only comes as a used item (colector item, curio, ect), then I'll have to settle for the used gun, but if I can find it new' I'll go the extra mile and $$$ to get it.
just my $0.02

As a Sig owner I would buy a used one in a heartbeat -- they are unquestionably reliebe and will feed anything -- I have never done any work on my P220 and the gun will even feed an empty case for failure drill practice -- most of the others will lock solid

Thank you for the welcome Logansdad:) and btw lol I did not know you needed a warranty for a Sig hehehe :) I have a close friend of mine that owns many Sigs and many other manufactures, by duty he must carry and his choice by much trial and error is the Sig. My own P220 has had thousands of rounds through it without any problems and many many more to come:) Hart

I've always wanted a Sig 226 9mm..Sig takes them in on trade from police departments across the USA and factory refurbishes them..I'm not fool enough to pass up a good deal when I find one

I have looked at the factory refurbished Sigs and they seem to be close to new. I have a 220 as you other members and it's one of my favorites. It was purchased new. A 226 may be the next one on my wish list, and it could be refurbished.

If I could find an old Sig 225 (P6) and I had the money, yeah, I would buy it!! I'm not sure about the rest of them, though!!
That way, all I would have to do is shell out a whole lot of money for a P7 to complete my collection of 1970's Deutsch police pistols!! I already have the Walther P5.
