There was a post about a month ago about someone making forearms which has since fallen off the board. Maybe they will chime in again. As for the new owner................

XPFUZZ did make some very, very, very good forearms.......maybe you can sweet talk him into making one.

Also call Rich. He has a few blanks - no inserts.

Here we are in December 2019. I popped off an email some time back inquiring about the Target Fore End and some small parts for my MOA. No response as yet. Not my biggest project, so I'll wait a bit longer before I get impatient.
The website hasn't been updated since Jan 2018.

Sadly, it seems MOA Pistols being produced is over.
Unless someone picks up the company and starts all over again.
These are just my thoughts, and I would love to be wrong.
The shoot is alive and well though.
Since Rich sold the company how many years ago, there has not been any real production, unless Rich did it or helped one of them do some.

Doing good.
He has been home for about a week now, if I remember right.
I called him the day got home.
Speech is good.
They don't want him on any lathes or mills right now though.

On the wide target forearms- is XPFuzz - Neal Cooper?
I have a new forend made by Neal Cooper for my MOA 1" barrel .376 Steyr that I have not had on the gun. He made it about 2008.
I guess if it would fit any MOA. It has the wood forend with aluminum insert for the pistol. I think it has a stud hole for a sling also.

XPFuzz would have been Cayle Davis, and he died recently.

Thanks Ernie. I couldn't find any of my emails back that far. Just that the forend had been made by Neal Cooper. Didn't know his handle. Got the MOA from Doug Miceli, and he had the forend made.

I have no idea if Neal is still doing that or not.
Have not heard from him in years

Holy Smokes!!! Did not know that.


Neal Cooper isn't doing wood anymore. His cnc programs exist but no one running them.

Great. I was going to offer the forend I have if you needed a pattern. Mine is close to being exactly like the photos.
