Things I liked:I really like the accuracy of this one. I'm a horrible shot but with the rear peep site I almost feel like it's cheating! Since this is so low powered I'm using bright orange stick on targets on a Winchester target cube so I can see them clearly through the rear site. But once you get the sights aligned to the target center after about 7 shots you'll start to get BB's ricocheting back at you because of the BB's are all ready so close in the foam cube that they cause new shots to hit off of them. I bought this one because of Tom's recommendation for accurate guns and it was on the affordable end compared to most of the others. I really like this one! It's cheap, solidedly built, and fun to shoot! I never thought that I would buy a Daisy but times have changed and it's a great little gun. I've been so used to pump guns lately that for about the first fifty shots I'd always grab the for arm to pump it. But I finally got used to the lever action which was easy and nice for a change. I'm shooting dime size patterns and using just the standard Daisy zinc coated bb's.
Things I would have changed:I'm like any other nut out there that wants crazy power! But this gun is what it is! Great accuracy, super quiet! Which makes it even more fun to shoot on my indoor range setup without worrying about my anti anything that shoots a projectile neighbors. The trigger feels like a sponge behind it, but it doesn't keep me from shooting great.
What others should know:Not much! But when you mount the 5899 rear optics keep in mind that there are little tabs that you have to align it with to secure it down as you slide it over them. Also the paint on the tabs is kind of thick and slippery as you tighten the sights hold down screws. They seem so small that I figure you could easily over tighten them and strip the screws? I can still grap the rear sight and wiggle it off if I wanted to. But it stays on target once adjusted initially and loosened and re tightened.
Things I liked:Quality build, deadly accurate and has retained that classic 'Daisy' look that appeals to all ages...my daughter is 10 and loves it, I'm 47 and as excited as her! Good feel and well set up and great value for money.
Things I would have changed:Nothing.
What others should know:If you want to return to your childhood and have a whole lot of target fun buy this gun..it's superb!
Things I liked:The trigger is so smooth, like 2 lbs, easy to predict shot let off, the aperture sights though not high end does a very good job, cocking is also ultra light 6 lbs a child could work it.
Things I would have changed:Daisy should apply the Avanti 499 trigger and cocking effort to its other guns, like the Red Ryder its like over 12 lbs or more so younger kids can self cock them.
What others should know:It is true that the Avanti BBs do group tighter than the regular BBs
