pinpoint accuracy

Extreme exactness. This somewhat hyperbolic term arose toward the end of World War II, when it was used first to describe extremely precise bombing of specific targets. Obviously a bomb could not really hit the point of a pin, but the description held. Later it was extended to other weaponry, and finally came into generalized use.
