Our Story

The Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts has a rich history of small arms production. From companies like Smith & Wesson and Savage Arms, to the great historic Springfield Armory founded by George Washington in 1777, Western Massachusetts has for hundreds of years produced some of the finest arms in the nation. We at Pioneer Valley Arms believe in the right to bear arms, and hope to help continue the tradition of gun ownership in the Pioneer Valley.

Our Vision
