By Tom from USA on 2008-05-23 10:10:45Things I liked:The 499 is the world's most accurate BB gun, and has been so since it was introduced in 1976. There is no better training airgun for young children than this one.
Things I would have changed:I wish the peep sight had more precision in the adjustments. Even the replacement sight lacks precision.
What others should know:This is a muzzle-loading single-shot. It is not a conventional BB gun - it is for target shooting. Everyone in the vicinity must wear safety glasses because steel BBs rebound like crazy. Be sure to also buy Avanti Precision Ground Shot to use in the gun.
