Shop for Daisy BB Guns |

You can't talk about BB guns without talking Daisy bb guns. They manufacture high quality air pistols, air rifles, pellet guns, bb guns, ammo, accessories and more. The Red Ryder is probably the most famous bb gun in the world and is synonymous with youth sports shooting. While the Red Ryder has been around for 80+ years, the Daisy brand got its start in 1880 when watchmaker and inventor Clarence Hamilton entered the windmill business. After inventing an innovative vane-less mill, he opened a factory to mass produce his invention.

The windmill business in Plymouth had seen better days, but across town, the Markham Air Rifle Company was creating a product that did sell--BB guns! Basing his design on the wooden guns that Markham produced, Hamilton created the first all-metal Daisy BB gun and went to the board of the windmill factory who had the furnaces capable of machining the metal parts. Once they fired the prototype, the General Manager exclaimed, "Boy, that's a Daisy!" and the name stuck.

By 1895, Daisy BB gun sales had far exceeded the failing windmill business, and the factory began to solely mass produce bb guns in the now renamed Daisy Manufacturing Company. By the end of the 19th century, Daisy had beat out most of its competitors and dominated the airgun market.

In 1928 Daisy entered a collaboration with American Ball and standardized one of the most popular forms of airgun ammunition--BBs. In 1938 the company released the most famous Daisy BB gun of all, the Red Ryder, and furthered Daisy's status as a household name.

While Daisy BB guns captured the public's fascination with airguns, they have gone on to create a variety of products since their early days and become widely known as a maker of entry-level air rifles and pistols. Their PowerLine Series air aimed squarely at a 16 and older market make great backyard plinkers. Daisy's Avanti line is aimed squarely at training and competition with the Daisy 499B labeled "The World's Most Accurate BB Gun".

And as for the Red Ryder, Pyramyd Air carries the legendary 1938 Red Ryder model, which is still a favorite of boys and girls (and adults too!). This is the perfect air rifle to introduce shooters who are 10 years of age and older, provided they have adult supervision. The 1938 Red Ryder is a lever-action spring rifle that is easy to cock, lightweight and lasts as long as you need it to. With young shooters in mind, Daisy made the wooden forearm and engraved stock just the right length.
