Daisy's Match Grade Avanti 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: Fit and finish is very good. The aperture sight mounted easily and although made from polymer material, is very serviceable and works well. The forearm has a cavity for adding extra weight to personalize the balance of the gun which is a nice feature. The accuracy is everything the advertising says it is. This is an excellent gun for anyone seeking a target rifle for use in smaller spaces and indoors. It's quiet, economical and very very accurate.

Things I would have changed: I think the gun was designed primarily with younger shooters in mind, but its so well made and accurate, that shooters of any age will enjoy ii. Seniors and adults who enjoy target shooting would not be disappointed with this gun. As a result, offering an adjustable stock length such as is found on the Daisy / Avanti 853 would be a welcomed change. The length of pull "as is" is just a bit short for most adult shooters. I extended the length of mine with a recoil pad but would have paid a little more for a system with extension inserts.

What others should know: I was skeptical about the performance of this gun when I bought it. I was wrong. This is a different animal from the Red Ryder type air gun.This is really a very decent target gun purpose built for shooting at 5 meters and it does that job very effectively. It is perfect for those shooting indoors at modest ranges and did not disappoint.This gun is excellent value for the money and lots of fun.

  • cj from USA asked:

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

    • Stanley from USA:


  • 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?
