SOLON, Ohio, Feb. 18, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ --

Click here to see a full list of top selling products on their site.

Starting with the airsoft guns, which shoot 6mm plastic round balls known as BBs, the top­selling guns are:
H&K MP7 AEG airsoft submachine gun
Beretta P92 FS electric airsoft pistol
941 UHC 8­inch airsoft revolver
Taurus PT 24/7 airsoft pistol
SIG Sauer P226 airsoft pistol

Aftermath CZ 75D airsoft pistol
Walther P99 blowback airsoft pistol

KWA KRISS Vector gas blowback airsoft submachine gun
KWA ATP Adaptive Training gas blowback airsoft pistol
WE full­metal 1911 MEU gas airsoft pistol
KWA KM4 SR& DEVGRU AEG airsoft rifle

Moving on to air guns, the following 13 guns proved to be the most popular air pistols, including a number of CO2 pistols. More manufacturers are hitting the 10­-ring when it comes making desirable guns, as these come from several makers rather than just one or two makers (as we've seen in previous years). Some of the guns shoot steel BBs, while others shoot lead pellets:
Beretta PX4 CO2 pistol
Crosman 2240 CO2 pistol
Benjamin Trail NP air pistol
Beeman P17 air pistol
Tanfoglio Witness 1911 CO2 pistol
Crosman 1322 air pistol
Walther CP99 Compact CO2 pistol
Dan Wesson 6" CO2 revolver
Crosman C11 CO2 pistol
Umarex XBG CO2 pistol
Umarex Steel Storm CO2 submachine gun
Colt 1911 Special Combat Classic CO2 pistol
Beretta Elite II CO2 pistol

For the top­-13 air rifles of last year, Pyramyd Air saw a few guns repeated from previous years, but most are newcomers that have gained instant popularity. Like the air pistols listed above, the rifles come from several makers rather than just one or two. Most of these air rifles shoot lead pellets rather than steel BBs:
Benjamin Marauder air rifle
Crosman 1077 CO2 rifle
Benjamin Trail NP XL air rifle
AirForce Airguns Condor/Condor SS air rifle
Benjamin Titan GP Nitro Piston air rifle
Gamo Big Cat 1200/1250 air rifle
Crosman Nitro Venom air rifle
Umarex Octane air rifle
Umarex Steel Force CO2 rifle
Stoeger Arms X20S Suppressor air rifle
Gamo Bone Collector Bull Whisper IGT air rifle
Diana RWS 34 air rifle
Winchester M14 CO2 rifle

Narrowing down the field to the top-­selling high­-end airguns, Pyramyd Air saw some of the guns repeated from the previous two groups...proving that even higer­priced guns sell well. Because more states have allowed hunting with air guns in 2013, several big bores have gained popularity and now make this list:
Benjamin Marauder air rifle
AirForce Airguns Condor/Condor SS air rifle
Air Arms TX200 MKIII air rifle
Benjamin Marauder air pistol
IZH 46M air pistol
Diana RWS 350 Magnum air rifle
Sumatra 2500 air rifle
Diana RWS 48 air rifle
AirForce Airguns Talon/Talon SS air rifle
Sam Yang Big Bore 909/909S air rifle
Sam Yang Recluse air rifle
Air Arms T200 Sporter air rifle
