I have heard that this might denote tight rifling. Has anyone any idea of the slug one would take? Also, for a 91TS, what would the rate of twist be?

That marking is said to be an Italian accuracy marking, but I am not 100% sold this is actually what that marking stands for.
I have seen it stamped in the wood under the buttplate of Carcanos which are not "accuracy marked" on the receiver/barrel.

The crossed rifles & bullseye are the historical mark of the "Tiro a Segno Nazionale", the Italian National Shooting Organization.

According to several sources, this mark is stamped on "civilian" rifles, made to be used at the range,or presented as a prize to a match winner. It's possible however that they were selected for precision too.

Thanks. Wonder why it is stamped in the wood under the buttplate on some M41 Carcano rifles?
