    Daisy's Champion 499 is for shooters 10 years and older who want to learn the basics of shooting. This spring-powered single-shot is the "Official Shooting Education BB Gun by Daisy." In fact, the Jaycees use this rifle to train young shooters. Millions of firearm and airgun shooters have used the Champion 499 to learn gun safety and proper gun handling This rifle is so accurate, that even seasoned shooters cannot shoot beyond its potential.

    The all wood stock has a Monte Carlo cheekpiece, and the lever-action cocking mechanism is easy to use. The hooded front sight and the Daisy 5899 rear peep sight help shooters quickly acquire the target. The gun is a muzzleloader, and the BB is held in place by a magnetic retainer. The rifle is intended for use at 5 meters (16.40 feet).

    Steel BBs can ricochet. The shooter and everyone in the shooting area should wear safety glasses when a gun is being handled (even if it's unloaded). Remember to remove all pets from the area, as rebounding ammo can hit them, too. Never shoot steel BBs at hard objects (including metal targets) or water, as that increases the chance of ricochet.

    Things I liked:Very accurate, easy to cock, competition type "peep" sights. Great bang for the buck.
    Things I would have changed:There is no pad on the butt of the stock, so it has a tendency to slip off of your shoulder. It may be that way because this rifle is used for some competitions. My grandson (10 years old) had a lot of trouble keeping the stock on his shoulder until he rolled up his T-shirt sleeve so that the butt was against bare skin. I will probably will find some sort of pad to help the slipping problem.
    What others should know:This air rifle is an awesome target rifle. It is so accurate, that we were having trouble with the 2nd and 3rd shots bouncing off of the first one (I use an electrical putty pellet trap so the first shots stick where they hit.) My grandson has a regular Red Rider BB gun which is great fun to shoot, but it is not accurate. This air rifle is fun to shoot and is accurate as many more expensive air rifles. I can not say enough good things about it.

    Things I liked:This little gun is insanely accurate. All of the sudden I think I am a trick shooter. I hit a 10mm wide washer at 30 feet, not once but every time. I can hit a 6mm airsoft bb at 20 feet. I cannot imagine being able to outshoot the gun. At 20 feet a 10 shot group bigger than 10mm is hugely disappointing.
    Things I would have changed:The forearm has a couple of tiny holes for "weights". They should be much larger to allow enough weight to matter.
    What others should know:This is not an upgraded Red Ryder. This is a handmade, specialized gun. That said, it is a great backyard shooter as well as target gun. It is far more accurate than you would ever believe a bb gun can be. I balked, like most people would at spending $130.00 on a bb gun. It has been worth every penny. Last, pay the small premium and buy the Avanti Precision Ground Shot. It is vastly superior to Crpsman and RWS BBS and noticeably better than regular Daisy BBS.

    Things I liked:This is one fantastic, accurate BB gun. It's like an Olympic 10 meter rifle, nearly. If ACCURACY is what you want (and who doesn't?) then get this for yourself or your kids. It's a wonderful gun for teaching good shooting habits, and it's SO REWARDING because you can hit what you aim at! This is a TARGET gun; not one to bounce cans around or break bottles...
    Things I would have changed:Not much. The wood is really nice. The sights are like Olympic rifles - diopter rear and hooded front with insert. Oh, the cocking lever is plastic, but the rest is metal and wood. The lever is no big deal, and if you didn't inspect it real close you'd never know. That's really the only thing I'd like changed, make the lever all metal.
    What others should know:I tell you, in the house, when you get the urge to just shoot and it's not possible to go outside, tape a target on an old phone book, or cardboard box with layers of paper behind it (be safe and sensible) and drop a BB down the barrel and get the satisfaction of putting a little hole in what you aimed at... I only had 20 ft distance to test inside my trailer.

    • Jason from USA asked:

      Howdy: The Daisy website shows the model 499B with sling and a micrometer rear peep sight. Is this the same one? Does it come with swivels, sling, and micrometer sight?
