Welcome to the

Lyman Shop

In 1878, William Lyman developed a new tang sight, exceeding the capabilities of common vernier sights of the day. The Lyman No. 1 Tang Sight featured a smaller disc and larger aperture, greatly improving visibility of the target in low-light conditions. This patented design launched the Lyman Gun Sight Company. In 1925, Ideal reloading products was purchased by the Lyman family, creating a long history of Lyman reloading manuals, presses, dies, trimmers, tumblers, molds, and other tools, all sold by MidwayUSA today. For over 137 years, the Lyman name has been synonymous with high performance products for shooters, hunters, and reloaders.
