Archer Airguns has served the airgun community since 2004. During this time, we have become famous as THE expert dealer for CO2-powered airguns of the QB78 family. These include the “basic” QB78, the QB78 Deluxe, QB79, AR2078, AR2078A and AR2079 models.
These airguns have always been manufactured by the Shanghai Airgun Company. Previously known as “Industry Brand” and “Tech Force” products, they have more recently been sold under the Beeman brand name. All have been Chinese-manufactured clones based on the original Crosman 160 of 1955.
Archer Airguns also designed, manufactured and sold the ground-breaking, US-manufactured QB78 Repeater and QB79 Repeater air rifles. These were the first models to successfully bring flawless multi-shot, magazine-fed capability to QB78 family airguns.
So Archer Airguns has always been a very specialized business. We prefer to be the “go to” experts on a restricted number of products we really understand.
From the beginning, Archer Airguns sold airgun parts.
With time, we have expanded our range of airgun kits for different brands and models. Now Archer Airguns has evolved to become the premier Internet source for airgun parts. Specifically we concentrate on parts for current and relatively-recent airguns. You’ll see many parts kits for new airgun brands and models introduced in future.
This means that Archer Airguns no longer sells airguns. If you’re looking for QB78-type air rifles, we recommend that you contact Pyramyd Air. Here are some useful direct links to the individual models:

If you are looking for an Archer Airguns QB78 Repeater or QB79 Repeater, the spiritual successor to these products is the Umarex Gauntlet. This PCP air rifle can also be powered by CO2 if required and offers the benefits of the original Archer Repeater with a much increased power level.
