    The most accurate BB gun in the world! That's what Daisy claims. And, it's true!

    Daisy's Champion 499 is for shooters 10 years and older who want to learn the basics of shooting. This spring-powered single-shot has a medallion stating that it's 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 how to shoot properly. 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 sight that will help shooters 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 (16.5 feet). Never shoot BBs at hard objects!

    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.

    Things I liked:The fit and finish were much better than I had expected. I purchased this rifle to be used as a gun safety and training rifle for my grandchildren. I received yesterday, installed the pip site and started shooting a 5 meters onto a one bull target designed for 5 meters. I first shot 5 shots all ended up between 6 and 9 oclock in the 7 and 8 ring. Not bad. I made a few minor adjustments and the rifle began shooting in the 9 and 10 ring unless I would pull a shot out a bit. I am 65 years old and I wear bifocals. I have not shot a pip site in years. After sighting the rifle in I moved to a 12 bull 5 meter target. The two bottom center targets are for sighting. I shot 10 targets, 100 shots, one shot to each bull. Out of the 100 shots there were only six that I pulled outside the black bull which is about the size of a penny. I felt that was pretty good for an old guy with bad eyes. I am looking forward to more shooting this afternoon. This is not your average bb gun. I can see that I'll need more of these in the future for the rest of the family. My granddaughter is now four and my grandson is 1, so I do have a couple of years before I'll have to share this with them.
    Things I would have changed:Nothing.
    What others should know:This is really a fun gun to shoot. I'm sure the gun shoots better than I can shoot.

    • 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?
