I was reading a surplus magazine (G&A, perhaps?) some time ago and I remember reading about some WWII rifles being graded for accuracy and marked from I to III on the receiver, the more accurate being marked with a I, the least with three marks.

I think these were Mosin Nagants, but I may be mistaken.

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I have been collecting and reading about Mosins for years. I am even credited by Karl-Heinz Wrobel as a source in his second volume of his German-language book on the Mosin series of rifles.

Accuracy marks on Russian Mosins is entirely new info to me. I sincerely doubt it is true.

Hmmm...Maybe another surplus rifle, then? I distinctly remember the article, and the discussion about the markings, but I no longer have the magazine.

Mausers, perhaps? SKS?

I've never seen anything like that on my SKS.
the Swiss make some pretty damn accurate rifles, that would be my first guess.

The Czech CZ52 pistol often has little dimple prick marks on the slide. Zero to three. Last I knew no one still knew why but an accuracy rating system is the common reason stated.
