Uptagrafft LLC started out as Nomad Precision Engineering and was established in 2002 as a sole proprietorship focused on the development and testing of a new .22 competition rimfire rifle action. After more than six years of development, a viable product was prototyped and successfully tested. In 2009 Nomad Precision Engineering was changed to Uptagrafft, LLC. The principals of the company are Eric and Sandra Uptagrafft.
Eric is an accomplished rifle shooter, having won multiple medals in both prone and 3-position at national and ISSF competition, a member of the 1996 and 2012 Olympic Teams. He has a degree in Aerospace Engineering and worked in the space industry for over 10 years. His machining education began when he was in junior high, working in his uncle's gun shop. Sandra has more than 12 women's pistol national championships, six Pan American Games medals, and was on the 2012 Olympic Team. Between the two of us we have more than 50 years of competitive shooting experience.
Due to our busy competition schedule, products and production time are limited. We are working to improve efficiency and will try to introduce more products when time avails. At this time we are mostly making bloop tubes, and tuner bloop tubes.
Our strength is that we know the competitive shooting arena, and have the engineering and machining background to put that knowledge to use. We are small enough to respond to individual needs and custom requests as well.
