About us....

            The MOA Maximum and the MOA 10/22® Stainless Replacement Receiver were originally conceived and manufactured by Richard Mertz first in the Dayton, Ohio area, and later moving to the Sundance, Wyoming. In 2014 he sold the rights to both to Pueblo Valley Firearms in Oregon (John Tingue). Due to health concerns, John has sold us the rights, equipment and machinery to allow me to manufacture the MOA Maximum and 10/22® Replacement Receiver here in Affton, Missouri. As many of you may know, we also manufacture the RPM XL Pistol. We are in the process of implementation .... Once we are ready to take orders, we will announce it here.

            Once we are "in production" the Maximum is manufactured and sold as a semi-custom, "build-to-order" gun, with our customer's choice of barrel length and contour, chambering, and "iron sights" or scope mounts. We have numerous chambering reamers on hand, in both factory (no-turn) and many tight neck (requires neck turning) configurations, as well as many "wildcats"... your choices are many. Often, our guns are ordered with multiple barrels, with customers appreciating the ease with which they can switch their Maximum from a target rig to an Elk gun!

            In past years, as interest in Tactical and Long Range Shooting has grown tremendously within the shooting sports, MOA has steadily received more orders for guns (and barrels) which are "purpose built" for Long Range shooting. Longer, and heavier barrels, with very fast rates of twist to stabilize the long, low drag bullets; 20moa scope bases, muzzle brakes, and cartridges with superior downrange ballistic performance have become a popular "build"  for the Maximum. In 2007 the first MOA Shoot was held; then, and in every subsequent year, we've demonstrated that the Maximum can compete at 1,000 yards. It has really "opened a lot of eyes" as to what a handgun is capable of at extended yardages.

We eagerly anticipate the 2017 Match!

We invite other Specialty Handgunners to join us in June, 2017 in Sundance!
