Pyramyd Air’s Best Selling 2020 High End Air Rifles

Pyramyd Air has announced their best selling 2020 high end air rifles – that’s models selling for over $500.00. As with previous years, nine out of ten are PCPs. The Air Arms TX200 MkIII still holds on as the lone spring/piston airgun in the pack.

A sign of the times, however, is the appearance of the first selective fire (semi- and fully-auto) model in this list, the Hatsan Blitz.

As last year, Velocity Outdoor takes the prize for the most appearances in this list – three. Air Venturi’s Seneca brand is in second place with two entries. Air Arms, AirForce, FX, Hatsan and Kral all have one place each in Pyramyd Air’s best selling 2020 high end air rifles list.

To check on the most popular air rifles under $500, check out this earlier HAM post.

First Position – Air Force Texan


The Texan wins top position in this year’s rankings. It’s been placed in this list every year since 2015, but it’s the first time to win.

Second Place – FX Impact X Mk II

The FX brand was new to Pyramyd Air in 2019. But that didn’t stop the Impact from immediately becoming their top-selling high end air rifle and retaining second position in 2020. Of course, the Impact has been immensely popular ever since its introduction.

Hard Air Magazine tested the Impact in .22 caliber at the end of 2017: it was an easy HAM Gold Award winner.

Number Three –  Benjamin Marauder Field And Target

The Field And Target is a regulated version of the well-known Marauder. HAM tested it when it first appeared as the Crosman Custom Shop Regulated Marauder. The Field and Target is the same gun in regular production.

Whatever the name, it’s another HAM Gold Award winner!
