"Zeroing" is adjusting the firearm to align it to best manufacturing tolerances. But even when a firearm is aligned to best manufacturing
tolerances there will be variations in accuracy from shot to shot.
"Accurizing" consists of "zeroing," plus any necessary modifications, including remachining parts, to align to even *tighter* precision to
consistently reduce the variation to better-than-design specs. It is the firearms equivalent of what auto engine builders call "blueprinting."
