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: This is a very solid lever action. NOT like a Red Ryder or any variation of it. I do wish it had more power, but I guess it wouldn't be as accurate if it did. I understand the education and competition purpose but still wish it was not a muzzle loader and shot about 50-75 fps faster. I am convinced also that the supreme accuracy is not only the smooth bore barrel but more to do with the much longer sight radius.

Things I would have changed: Nothing. Its a legend of BB guns.

What others should know: It is a single shot, muzzle loading, very close range highly accurate BB gun.

Things I liked: Very accurate little rifle.

Things I would have changed: Trigger needs a little help. Did it. Gave this rifle a 4 because I need a scope to see the targets (age 75). Also the butt is pretty slippery. I mounted a scope with the original sight screw and a little Brownells J-B weld. I added a rubber butt pad cut from an old bicycle inner tube to stop the butt from sliding (hint Daisy). I have a few photos if interested.

Things I liked: Yep, they are right, this is THE most accurate BB rifle in the world. If you want to hit what your are aiming at, then this is the gun for you. Just buy the Daisy Avanti BB's and you will be set to go. This rifle is so much fun and accurate.

Things I would have changed: A little better trigger, but you will get used to it.

What others should know: Buy the Daisy AVANTI BB's.

  • cj from USA asked:

    can it kill a frog at short range? say 5-6 feet?

    • 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?
