Pyramyd Air celebrates 10 years selling online

Share Article

Pyramyd Air, the world's largest mail-order airgun retailer, was the first U.S. airgun dealer to accept orders online, and they recently celebrated their tenth anniversary for online sales.

In business since 1993, Pyramyd Air sold products through a mail-order catalog and at airgun shows. Their first website went live in 1998, and online ordering became available in the summer of 1999. Their first online order shipped on July 13, 1999, and it was for two tins of airgun pellets. Over a billion pellets have been shipped since then, and more than half a million orders have been shipped since that time.

The original website was small and featured selections from just a few manufacturers, including AirForce Airguns, Anics, Axsor, Gamo, IZH-Baikal, Rutten, Smith & Wesson, Walther, Webley & Scott (including the Venom Custom Shop) and Weihrauch. The original list of 12 manufacturers has grown to 100, with new manufacturers added weekly.

While pellet and BB pistols and rifles have been the mainstay of the company, Pyramyd Air broadened its line to include paintball in 2002 and airsoft guns, gear and ammo in 2003. They expanded the types of non-powder guns they stock in 2008 by adding blank guns to their inventory. Blank-firing guns are powered by primer but do not include gun powder and are generally unregulated. In 2008, they created an archery section and added long bows, compound bows and crossbows as well as bolts and arrows. Crossbows are considered by many to be associated with and even the forerunners of airguns.

Pyramyd Air currently stocks airguns, airsoft guns, accessories, pellets and BBs from popular manufacturers such as AirForce Airguns, Air Arms, Air Venturi, Avanti, Beeman, Benjamin, Beretta, BKL, Browning, CenterPoint Optics, Colt, Crosman, Cybergun, Daisy, Eun Jin, Evanix, Feinwerkbau (FWB), Gameface, Gamo, Hammerli, Haendler & Natermann (H&N), Heckler & Koch (HK), HFC, ICS, IZH-Baikal, KJ Works, Leapers, Magnum Research, Makarov, Marksman, Mendoza, Norica, Plano, Remington, Ruger, RWS Diana, Sam Yang, Sheridan, Shinsung, Smith & Wesson (S&W), Sumatra, Tanfoglio, Tau Brno, UHC, Umarex, UTG, Walther, WE, Weihrauch and Winchester.

Pelletier and educational airgun articles about air rifles, air pistols, airsoft guns, shooting accessories, scope selection, mounting optics and other helpful topics.
