What does the following phrase, copied from the SIG Sauer FAQ page, mean exactly?

“SIG SAUER, Inc sights in all non-sporting and non-target pistols for 2 inch groupings @ 10 yards.”

SIGs shoot tighter groups than 2 inches at 10 yards, rested. I understand sighting in the pistol at 10 yards. Put the two together and I’m confused. :huh:

I believe they are saying the "group" fired rested, single action, at 10 yards should be inside a 2" circle which would be the pistols general accuracy. Then there is also POA=POI at 10 yards, rested which means accurately sighted in. 2 different measures of accuracy.

the group measures 2' across, wherever located.

right or left can be changed by moving the front site..

I cannot imagine any SIG shooting so poorly from a bench at 10 yards. 2 inch groups would be horrendous.

I’m starting to believe that whoever tests these pistols shoots them at ten yards from a bench and if the group average (probably a very tight group) hits within 2 inches of the POA, the sights are left where they are and that pistol ships.

Meaning that SIG Sauer claims that it’s pistols are sighted in to hit within 2 inches of whatever you’re aiming at inside of 10 yards - right?
