    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: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.

    Things I liked:Most Accurate BB gun on the market. Easy to repair if something goes amiss. Excellent product for the money.
    Things I would have changed:There is something funcky with the barrels/muzzles or a possible increase in air pressure put out by the guns manufactured in the past few years as we are having a high frequency of breakage.
    What others should know:If you have a consistent shooter who all of a sudden has a "flyer" every once in a while. Remove the muzzle and barrel and check the black plastic very carefully for hairline cracks or breakage.

    Things I liked:I have thoroughly enjoyed this purchase! My avanti champion is the most accurate bb gun I've ever had. It shoots better than I can. The peep sight seemed a little flimsy at first, but after several weeks of daily use, it seems up to the task well enough. I was pleased with the general fit And finish. The accuracy is amazing for a bb gun. After some concentration on my basic rifle skills, I was steadily busting aspirin tablets at 5 meters. With my average skills and 63 year old eyes, I was stunned with that improvement in marksmanship.
    Things I would have changed:The users manual could certainly be improved and expanded.. It would be nice if the sights were installed. Mine came with extra front sights, but they were all the same size. Different sizes would be nice.
    What others should know:I would recommend this purchase to my friends. Ammo wise, the copperheads were the worst. Daisy preimium zinc plated did well, but the avanti ground precision bb's were the best and well worth the difference. Eye protection is a must for shooters and bystanders, those bb's can bounce hard.

    • 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?
