Abstract The second-order converse bound of multiple access channels is an intriguing problem in information theory. In this work, in the setting of the two-user discrete memoryless multiple access channel (DM-MAC) under maximal error probability criterion, we investigate the gap between the best achievable rates and the asymptotic capacity region. With ``wringing techniques'', we show that gap between the largest achievable sum-rate at blocklength $n$ and the sum-capacity is upper bounded by $\mathcal{O}(1/\sqrt{n})$.
