            Located in Sundance Wyoming, MOA Corporation is a small, precision machine shop. In addition to a high quality, Stainless 10/22 Replacement Receiver, we have been manufacturing the unique MOA Maximum since 1982; when upon introduction, it was immediately acclaimed by many silhouette competitors for it's accuracy edge in production class. Today, while the Maximum still enjoys great popularity in the IHMSA, many more are utilized in the game fields every year.

            Currently, 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 purchased with multiple barrels, with customers appreciating the ease with which they can switch their Maximum from a target rig to an Elk gun!

            In recent years, as interest in Tactical and Long Range Shooting has grown tremendously within the shooting sports, MOA has begun to sell more guns (and barrels) which are "purpose built" for Long Range shooting. Longer, and heavier barrels, with very fast rates of twist to stabilize the new, 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.
