What does it mean to have a gun certified?

When and why would you need to have a gun certified?

From what I have read or seen it appears that most of the time if the gun is at or near it life expectancy it has been certified.

I guess you are talking about used guns? I know Sig does this, don't know what others do, but "certified" should mean about the same thing no mater which manufacturer it is.

Certified Pre-Owned Sig Sauer pistols are traded in by police agencies for new Sig Sauer pistols. These pre-owned pistols have been certified after passing the SIGARMS five-point certification process. Each pistol is approved by a SIGARMS armorer and is backed by the SIG factory warranty.Sig Preowned Warranty (http://www.sigsauer.com/WarrantyInfo/CertifiedPreOwnedWarranty.aspx)

I believe Glock does a similar thing with the Glock Factory Reconditioned pistols. Basically it's just a way of saying that the factory is backing it with a warranty. Rather then no warranty that most used pistols come with.

Of course companies with lifetime warranties for all owners (Springfield, and S&W come to mind) don't need to do this type of thing.
