are they any better than just buying a regular used sig, does the work they do to them make them a better buy/is it worth the extra money?

They carry a 1-year warranty. I have bought three and all were superb.

Some, maybe a lot of early CPO Sigs had some finish problems. There were quite a few threads about them. They should come up if you do a search.

I think Sig has gotten that straightend out. As far as function goes, they are excellent. I've never heard of anybody having any problems that way. You really can't go wrong with the price. They are a great value.

Good luck!

I don't understand folks who are buying police trade-ins at really good prices and complain about the "finish".

I had one that had problems.
SIG wasn't too friendly about making it right and basically only gave in and agreed to honor their warranty when I started acting like an A-hole.
It was necessary. Their customer service people were very disrespectful.
IMO, if you want a SIG, find a used one that you can shoot first before buying. Try it, make sure it works, then buy it.
That way, you'll never have to test any of their warranties.

IMO, Sig's 1-year warranty on their CPO guns is worthless. They refused to let me send in my malfunctioning CPO gun (bad extractor out of the box). After several calls dealing with their rude customer service, they finally agreed to send me a new extractor, but I had to have it installed by a local gunsmith at my expense.

I had a 2022 or 2340 in 40 S&W (cant remember the model number but was 1 of the 2) and only shot 100 rounds of lead reloads thru it. It ran fine, but just wasnt for me. I traded it off, and am glad I did. Go to www.sigforum.com and browse around there for some pretty straight info on Sigs.
