Well,

I bought a CPO 229 that looked very good externally and had some wear on the slide internally and the barrel had some wear. Overall I think they replace severally worn or broken parts then refinish. I haven't shot mine much but I bought a new barrel because the original looked worn. I would do it again if I could inspect a few and pick the best. My 2 bits.

They only refinish the slides.

I bought a used w german 226 that had been shot a lot. I planned on getting a new barell for it because the rifling only went half as deep as on a new barell, but so far its plenty accurate and is still working just fine.

Sig CPO's are just a labled ban that says CPO.

This label makes the gun runs better and gives the dealer an excuse to sell the gun for $100 more.

It does mean they have a 1 year warranty, as opposed to a regular "used" Sig. The red box also was a means to discourage unscrupulous retailers from trying to sell CPO guns as new.

I've got a 226, 220 & 229 that are CPOs. No problems at all.
Look and shot as new. And, if I were to sell them, would be considered "used" just as if they were Blue Box guns.
I don't know if there would be any difference in the trade/sell value.
And, I don't intend to find out.:biggrin:

Got it backwards, they are usually a Police turn in and runs about 150 to 200 less than new. Comes with a 1 year warranty rather than a life time one. They rebuild the and replace any worn parts, and refinish if necessary. I have had a COP P229 40, a P239 40, and a P220 45. Still have the P239 and the P220 45.

Never had a problem with any of them.
