Between the M1 Garand, Mauser 98, and the Mosin Nagat, which of the three is the best concerning accuracy at distances using iron sights of course.

I've had multiples of all three rifles. One of each couldn't hit the barn door while the other would be a least 2 inches at 100 yards with a 98 Mauser with good rifling tumbling FMJ at 50 yards and an M1 Garand doing 6+ inches at 100. The best shooting surplus rifle I have ever had is a Japanese type 38 carbine that will do groups of 2 inches or less at 200 yards with it's favorite hand load.
I guess that no two rifles of the same type are quite a like in their shooting.

Would Barrel gauge play a large factor in accuracy? For example if I were to get a 5 on a M1 Garand and go shooting would it preform significantly worse then say, a 3?

That is hard to answer as each rifle is a world to itself. An example is some of the carbines that CMP sold had muzzle readings of 3 or higher and some of these were more accurate then ones that had a reading of 1 to 2. So I would say that in general the reading is only a guide and one would expect a lower reading to have the potential to shoot better and in general they most likely do but it's just not always the case.

Any or all can perform well. It depends on the individual rifle. Some are tack drivers and others not so much. My 91/30's (I have 4) and M1 rifles (again, I have 4)will all group 2" or less at 100 yards using time-tested hand loads as long as I do my part. Only accurate rifles are interesting. I sold my one and only K98 because it was not interesting enough.
