Pyramyd Air Partners with Digital Wave Corporation to Offer Life Extended SCBA Air Cylinders For PCP Airgunners

Sunday, June 24th, 2018

Exclusively available on Pyramyd Air, LE Tanks will provide up to 14 years usable life; $200 savings over new carbon fiber fill sources

Cleveland, Ohio (June 11, 2018) Pyramyd Air, the world’s largest internet airgun retailer in conjunction with Digital Wave Corporation, a leading authority of modal acoustic testing, is pleased to announce the release of Life Extended SCBA tanks for use with precharged pneumatic airguns. Using groundbreaking technology, each expired tank is rigorously tested and restored to Department of Transportation (DOT) standards, extending each tank’s usable life, providing years of dependable service, and presenting a low-cost gateway for PCP airgunning.

“This is very exciting news for PCP airgun owners and those who are thinking about getting into precharged pneumatics.” says Val Gamerman, President of Pyramyd Air. “In the last few years, PCPs have come down in price, but the cost of fill sources has remained high. This exclusive partnership means that airgunners can now purchase higher capacity carbon fiber tanks for less than the cost of smaller systems and save up to $200 on some models.”

Using end-of-life tanks collected from fire departments across the country, Digital Wave subjects each tank to a series of demanding tests that include a visual inspection, ultrasonic cleaning, and Modal Acoustic Emission (MAE) tests to reveal any compromise in the cylinder. Once passed, end-of-life cylinders are given a new expiration date and a new life in the hands of PCP airgunners.

Mark E. Anderson of Digital Wave Corporation said of the collaboration, “Being an avid air gun enthusiast myself, I knew that buying a brand-new carbon fiber cylinder was an expensive purchase. Digital Wave is excited to work with Pyramyd Air to give airgunners a new cost-effective carbon fiber pressure vessel alternative via the Air Venturi LE cylinders”.

Life Extended Air Venturi cylinders are currently available on Pyramyd Air in 30 minute (45 cu ft), 45 minute (66 cu ft) and 60 minute (88 cu ft) options that include new DIN 300 valves and fill hoses with female quick disconnect couplings. Assorted sized tanks, with up to 14 years life remaining are available for purchase immediately on PyramydAir.com. Additional resources are available on PyramydAir.com for those looking to learn more about MAE testing and Life Extended tanks.

Arkansas Game and Fish Commission Approves Big Bore Airgun Hunting

Sunday, May 20th, 2018

LITTLE ROCK, AR (May 18th, 2018)– The Arkansas Game & Fish Commission has unanimously passed new general hunting regulations that allow the use of big bore air rifles for harvesting whitetail deer during modern gun season. This rule change, effective immediately for the upcoming hunting season, will allow pre-charged pneumatic airguns .40 caliber and larger which produce muzzle energy greater than 400 foot-pounds to be used in hunting whitetail deer. Additionally, the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission requires that the projectile used in these big bore air rifles be capable of expansion upon impact with its target.

While most states do allow hunting of small game with air rifles, Arkansas is the 10th state that has approved the use of big bore air rifles for hunting big game species.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the Arkansas Game & Fish Commission’s research, study and proactive approach regarding the allowance of highly effective big bore air rifles for hunting Arkansas whitetail.” said Richard Turner, President of Umarex USA. “The timing is perfect for the introduction of the .50 caliber Umarex Hammer which we’re making at our facility in Fort Smith, Arkansas”

The world’s most powerful production air rifle, the Umarex Hammer, is being made by airgun manufacturer, Umarex USA, based in Fort Smith, Arkansas. This pre-charged pneumatic air rifle generates up to 705 foot-pounds of energy at the muzzle and has been used on hunts for several large deer species including red stag, fallow, and axis buck. The .50 caliber Hammer has also been used to harvest an American bison, Canadian black bear, wild hog, African simitar oryx and wildebeest.

Umarex developed the .50 caliber Hammer to offer hunters an alternative to firearms and archery for the safe and humane harvesting of big game species. The Hammer allows hunters a quieter experience when compared to either primitive or modern rifle platforms. Hunters who can no longer manipulate the draw of a bow or crossbow will be able to continue hunting with the power of air!

This regulation change goes into effect immediately for the 2018 season in the state of Arkansas. Umarex USA is working in conjunction with the Airgun Sport Association and many state regulatory agencies in an effort to open big bore air rifle hunting in states where it is not currently allowed.

Newington, N.H. (April 30, 2018) – The new SIG SAUER ASP20 break barrel air rifle, 1911 We The People BB Pistol and X-Five ASP Air Pistol will be among the many high-performance airguns on display in the SIG SAUER booth (#6220) at the 2018 NRA Annual Meetings and Exhibits in Dallas this weekend. Available in .177 and .22 calibers, the highly anticipated ASP20 features the airgun industry’s most advanced trigger system and delivers down-range power and accuracy with the lightest cocking effort in its class, making it ideal for hunting small game. This is the first SIG SAUER airgun to be built at SIG SAUER’s state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in New Hampshire and many of the company’s firearms technologies were used in the design and production of this impressive break barrel air rifle.

“Airguns are excellent training tools and a lot of fun to shoot, and we welcome NRA members and their families to the SIG SAUER booth to check out our latest offerings like the 1911 We The People BB Pistol, X-Five ASP pellet pistol and ASP 20,” said Joseph Huston, Vice President and General Manager of the SIG SAUER Airgun Division. “The ASP20 is unique – a true game changer in the break barrel market with its unrivaled trigger system and GlideLite™ cocking mechanism which cocks the ASP20 at 33 lbs. versus the standard 48-52 lb. cocking rate typically found in break barrels in this power range. We are also offering it with a SIG SAUER WHISKEY3 ASP 4-12×44 Adjustable Objective riflescope.”

NRA members who are eager to get in a little target practice during the weekend can visit Pyramyd Air’s indoor airgun range in Ballroom C of the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center where the SIG SAUER MPX ASP air rifle will be available to shoot.

The Pyramyd Air range is open from 2:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Thursday, May 3, from 8:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m. on Friday, May 4 and Saturday, May 5.

Twelve Open Airgun Athletes Changwon Bound after Rifle/Pistol Spring Selection

Thursday, March 29th, 2018

FORT BENNING, Georgia (March 29, 2018) — Twelve open airgun athletes will compete for Team USA at the 2018 International Shooting Sport Federation (ISSF) World Championships later this summer after winning an intense two-part selection match that was finalized today at the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit (USAMU) in Fort Benning, Georgia.

Athletes began their quest during the 2017 Winter Airgun Championships and solidified their standing today at the Rifle/Pistol Spring Selection Match following a two-day match and Final. Team spots were handed out to the top-three finishers in Men’s and Women’s Air Rifle and Pistol. The World Championships will take place August 31-September in Changwon, South Korea.

Four Olympians earned their spots on the team including Nick Mowrer (Butte, Montana), Keith Sanderson (Colorado Springs, Colorado) and Sandra Uptagrafft (Phenix City, Alabama) in Air Pistol along with Lucas Kozeniesky (Fairfax, Virginia) in Men’s Air Rifle.

Of note, all today’s Finals winners across the four Open events were 18 or younger in a great showcase of USA Shooting’s future promise.

The 2012 Olympian Mowrer was dominant across the two matches winning by 28 points in Men’s Air Pistol. Surprisingly, this talented multi-discipline shooter makes his first World Championship after more than eight years on the international competition circuit. James Hall (Anniston, Alabama) earned the second spot in Men’s Air Rifle and makes his first World Championship Team, despite shooting 22 points lower over his two qualification matches at Spring Selection than he did at Winter Airgun.

Making his third World Championship Team where he’ll be competing in his fifth pistol discipline is the three-time Olympian Sanderson. The 43-year-old is the reigning World Cup Finals champion and USA Shooting’s Male Athlete of the Year.

Another notable performance was 18-year-old Jack Leverett’s (Bainbridge, Georgia) Spring match as he finished second overall and was just four points behind Sanderson for open team consideration. He showed he’s in prime form as the 2018 National Junior Olympic Shooting Championship (NJOSC) are next month and will serve as the Junior selection match for World Championships. Challenging him there will be another 18-year-old in Kyler Swisher (Jonestown, Pennsylvania), who was today’s Finals winner.

The game has changed in Women’s Air Pistol with an additional 20 shots added to qualification, but that didn’t seem to faze Alexis Lagan (Boulder City, Nevada) as she defeated the field by 10 points this match and 18 points overall for World Champs selection. She’ll compete in her first World Championships later this summer.

“With the recent change in Women’s Air Pistol, I think this match was challenging, but also new and exciting,” Lagan said after the match. “We all learned a little something and will be able to work on it as we prepare for Korea. There is a lot of potential on our team, and I cannot wait to see it blossom at the World Championships.”

Joining her will be the 2012 Olympian Uptagrafft while 17-year-old Sarah Choe (Los Angeles, California) continues to show maturity beyond her years in earning her selection as well. She would put the exclamation point on her proud moment with a Finals win earlier this afternoon.

Air Force Academy sophomore Logan Ogden (Galway, New York) is the top overall finisher for World Champs selection in Men’s Air Rifle, narrowly defeating Dempster Christenson (Sioux Falls, South Dakota) by .3 points. Earning the third spot is 2016 Olympian Lucas Kozeniesky (Fairfax, Virginia). Ogden will compete in his first World Championship while Christenson readies for his third straight opportunity with Kozeniesky competing as a junior back in 2014.

Today’s notable performance came from 16-year-old Will Shaner (Colorado Springs, Colorado), who earned the Finals win in Men’s Air Rifle.

In Women’s Air Rifle, Mindy Miles (Weatherford, Texas) is putting the finishing touches on a great collegiate career at Texas Christian University and made that much sweeter today with her top overall selection. She edged fellow TCU alum Sarah Beard (Danville, Indiana) by 9.7 points with Ali Weisz (Belgrade, Montana) earning the final selection spot. Miles will compete in her second World Championship after making the junior final in 2014, finishing eighth. Beard is headed to her third straight World Championship and knows what being on the podium there feels like after earning a prone silver medal in 2010 as a junior.

Reigning Olympic gold medalist Ginny Thrasher (Springfield, Virginia) finished fourth overall for World Champs selection, just .3 points behind Weisz.

Emily Stith (Jacksonville, Florida) was today’s Finals winner in the event and finished third in the Spring Selection Match. This is an impressive performance after spending much of the last few months in Army basic training, forcing to miss Winter Airgun, and just getting assigned to the U.S. Army Marksmanship Unit earlier this week.

These athletes join the 24 shotgun athletes that earned their selection to the World Champs Team last weekend in Tucson, Arizona during the Shotgun Spring Selection Match. Read what shotgun athletes are Changwon bound as well in Skeet and Trap.

RESULTS: http://bit.ly/2usBG28
The Spring Selection Match continues Friday with the start of the smallbore (.22 caliber) events in both disciplines including Men’s Rapid Fire Pistol, Women’s Sport Pistol and Three-Position Rifle for both men and women. Another 12 athletes will earn their way onto the team with results carried over from the 2017 Rifle/Pistol Fall Selection Match. Get those results here . . .

Air Venturi Releases Nomad 4500 PSI Portable Compressor

Saturday, March 10th, 2018

Compact compressor is designed to fill PCP guns directly from a wall outlet or a car battery

Solon, Ohio (March 8, 2018) – Air Venturi, the leading manufacturer and importer of airgun, airsoft, and ammunition brands, is introducing the Air Venturi Nomad, a 4500 PSI portable air compressor built for the airgunner on the move. Now available at AirVenturi.com, the release offers a portable, affordable filling option for PCP shooters.

“With the release of the Air Venturi 4500 PSI Compressor last year, we gave airgunners one of the first affordable PCP fill stations, a workhorse that could fill tanks and PCP guns alike at a much faster rate.” Says Kristen Coss, Marketing Manager at Air Venturi, “The Nomad is positioned as a portable fill station you can take with you, and is designed for filling PCP guns directly. It won’t fill as fast as the original AV compressor, but can easily pressurize a 250cc cylinder from empty to filled in just 9 minutes. If you have access to a car battery, you can fill your gun in as little as 3 minutes.”

According to Paul Milkovich, Air Venturi’s Director of Business Development, the Air Venturi Nomad Compressor marks a turning point in PCP airgunning and may attract more users to PCP airguns. “Typically compressors can be heavy, large, and have to stay cooped up in the garage. With an MSRP of $549.99, our compressor puts fast, portable refills within reach, at an attractive price.”

The Nomad plugs into a standard 110V outlet or attaches to a standard car battery. Once connected, it can fill PCP guns directly up to to 4500 psi with an adjustable cut-off switch. Each compressor includes a hose with female quick disconnect fitting, integrated moisture catch, and a bleed valve.

Approximate fill times:

Benjamin Marauder Pistol (65cc): 0-3000 psi in approx. 3 min
Diana Stormrider (100cc): 0-3000 psi in approx. 3:45 min
Air Arms S510 Xtra FAC (231cc): 1450-2900 psi in approx. 5:30 min
Ataman M2R Carbine Ultra Compact (130cc): 0-4350 psi in approx. 8 min

About Springfield Armory®

In 1794, the original Springfield Armory was designated as our national armory by General George Washington, and began manufacturing muskets for the defense of our young, free Republic. This monumental institution went on to serve as a think tank for developing innovative firearms concepts and producing some of the most storied rifle platforms in our country’s history. The Armory functioned as a firearms supplier for every major American conflict until 1968 when the government sadly closed its doors. In 1974, two centuries after its inception, Springfield Armory Inc. in Geneseo, IL revived the iconic heritage of the Armory to carry on its legacy and restore the Springfield Armory name.

Springfield Armory Inc. engineers, manufactures and assembles their legendary M1A™, 1911 and SAINT® AR-15 lines of firearms in Geneseo, Illinois. Since 2001, Springfield Armory has enjoyed a strategic, collaborative partnership with the state-of-the-art factory in Croatia working hand-in-hand to develop and engineer the multiple award-winning line of XD® polymer pistols that have become staples in the US marketplace. We strive to honor this responsibility as guardians of the original Springfield Armory legacy by manufacturing the highest quality firearms to enable responsible citizens to preserve their right to keep and bear arms in the defense of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.

Air Venturi to Release World’s First Frangible BB Ammo

Thursday, January 4th, 2018

CLEVELAND, OHIO (January 4, 2018) Air Venturi, the leading manufacturer and importer of airgun, airsoft, and ammunition brands, is proud to announce the release of the revolutionary Dust Devil BBs, the world’s first frangible .177 caliber BB. Dust Devils are 10% faster than traditional steel BBs and shatter on impact with hardened targets for reducing ricochets and providing an overall safer shooting experience.

“Made right here in the USA, this new patent pending ammo is designed for dynamic shooting sessions where shooters don’t have to worry about ricochet,” says Paul Milkovich, Air Venturi’s Director of Business Development. “While frangible ammo has been popular with firearm shooters for decades, Air Venturi is the first company to produce a BB that leaves ricochets in the dust. Dust Devils are BBs perfected and we’re sure backyard plinkers and indoor shooters will take notice.”

Dust Devil BBs disintegrate into tiny fragments that safely crumble and fall, instead of sending rounds bouncing back at the shooter. Its proprietary blend of special alloys create a round that shoots 10% faster and is completely lead-free. Adding to Air Venturi’s wide assortment of air guns, airsoft guns and ammunition, Dust Devil BBs will be available beginning in March 2018.

For additional information on the new Air Venturi frangible ammo, contact Air Venturi Marketing Manager, Kristen Coss by email: kristen.coss@airventuri.com, or phone: 216-292-2570 ext. 253.

The four new targets include:

Cowboy Action Diamond Gong Airgun Target: This ⅛” thick diamond shaped steel plate will be recognizable to SAA shooters everywhere. Each hit provides a satisfying clang as it sends your BBs and pellets safely into the ground.

The Medusa: This Texas Star like challenge finds its roots in Greek Mythology, inspired by the dreaded Gorgon monster. This resettable target lets you shoot down its 9 spinning “snakes” and reset them without leaving the bench.

Crazy Eights Target: A classic firearm target redesigned as the ultimate airgun target. Hit all eight of the hanging paddles with a reaction you can see and hear. Once all eight are on the reset bar, shoot the release paddle to drop back into the action.

Dueling Tree Target: This target lets shooters go head-to-head against their favorite shooting partner in a contest of speed and accuracy. Featuring six target paddles, the first shooter to shoot down all three paddles on their side wins.

AIR BOLT BY AIR VENTURI .35 Caliber Added to Line Up

Monday, July 31st, 2017

Solon, Ohio (July 31, 2017) – Air Venturi, an exclusive airgun, airsoft and ammunition importer of leading international airgun brands, is introducing a brand new addition to its innovative Air Bolt line. The latest release brings .35 caliber Air Bolts to accompany the successful .50 caliber Air Bolt introduced in 2016. This new caliber increases the versatility of .35 airguns, as well as offering new possibilities of hunting different sized game effectively.

“With the success of the .50 caliber Air Bolt, it was the next logical step to open the product line up to more calibers,” said Air Venturi Director of Business Development, Paul Milkovich. “The .35 caliber is one of the most popular ammunition choices, and this release opens up arrow shooting to a massive audience. Whether you want to shoot targets or wild game, the .35 cal Air Bolt has got you covered.”

According to Milkovich, “The Air Bolts in the new caliber still provide tremendous knock-down power and velocity. When we tested the .35 caliber, 375 grain Air Bolt out of the Recluse, we consistently achieved velocities around 530 fps (feet per second) with 234 fpe (foot pounds of energy). With these kinds of numbers, it’s easy to see how the Air Bolt will transform your .35 caliber airgun into a bolt-slinging powerhouse capable of taking trophy-sized big game.”

“We tested our .35 bolts in our in-house range and achieved 1 inch groups at 30 yards. They’re so precise, you have to be careful you don’t shoot your own arrows already lodged in the target–they are that accurate.”

Both .50 and .35 caliber Air Bolts are constructed of 100 percent Hi-Modulus Carbon Fiber with a small outside diameter that produces maximum speed and accuracy. With the 100 grain field tip, the .35 cal Air Bolt weighs 375 grains in total.

Air Venturi Introduces the Air Venturi 4500 psi Air Compressor

Friday, January 13th, 2017

Air Venturi Air Compressor

Solon, Ohio (Jan. 12, 2016) – Air Venturi, an exclusive airgun, airsoft and ammunition importer of leading international airgun brands, today introduced the Air Venturi Electric 4500 psi Air Compressor. This release marks a welcome addition to the PCP airgunners’ toolkit . Currently, PCP owners have to rely on local fire departments and SCUBA shops to refill their air tanks and hand pumps to fill their guns. The new Air Venturi Air Compressor allows users to refill their air tanks in the convenience of their own home in as little as 10 minutes.

“The Air Venturi Air Compressor makes PCP airgunning much more user-friendly,” said Air Venturi Marketing Manager Kristen Coss. “PCP Airguns generally represent the best airguns for power and accuracy, but until now their biggest drawback has been finding a way to fill your air tank without a drive into town. This compressor makes the middleman completely unnecessary, because you can now fill your airgun at home.”

According to Paul Milkovich, Air Venturi’s Director of Business Development, the Air Venturi Electric Air Compressor marks a turning point in PCP airgunning and may turn more users onto PCP airguns. “Typically compressors of this build and quality can be priced as high as $3,000. We really wanted to develop an affordable option for PCP airgunners. With an MSRP of $1,499, our compressor puts fast refills within reach,” he said. “PCPs are the future of airgunning, and with the Air Venturi Compressor you cannot make refilling these guns easier or more convenient.”

Air Venturi’s compressor plugs into a standard 110V outlet and refills air tanks up to 4500 psi. The kit includes a hose with female quick disconnect fitting, extra seals and O-rings, male-to-male fitting and replacement filter. The compressor is perfect for Air Venturi carbon fiber and aluminum tanks currently available at AirVenturi.com.

Approximate fill times:

  • 90 cu-in. Tank: 0 to 3000 psi in 10 minutes; 0 to 4500 psi in 15 minutes
  • 74 cu-ft. Tank: 0 to 3000 psi in 35 minutes; 0 to 4500 psi in 52 minutes; 3000 to 4500 psi in 17 minutes
  • 88 cu-ft. Tank: 3000 to 4500 psi in 20 minutes
