The most accurate BB gun in the world! That's what Daisy claims. And, it's true!
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: Solid product and lots of fun. Accuracy A+++. Highly recommended for all ages.
Things I would have changed: For what it is - no changes need it.
What others should know: Good BB-s like Avanti Precision Ground will work wonders with this gun. You could be a Champion.
Things I liked: Well made and very accurate! While these guns resemble the Red Ryder, they go way beyond anything the Red Ryder is capable of. I bought this for my grand daughter's use (she's on our local 4-H rifle team) and was amazed with the accuracy this bb gun is capable of. I would highly recommend this bb gun to any wanting an accurate shooting indoor gun. This would be a great way to keep one's shooting skills sharp without spending lots of money or annoying the spouse or neighbors (it's pretty quiet). All in all fit and finish are very good compared to other bb guns. An excellent choice for the novice to learn firearm safety and the basic of rifle shooting.
Things I would have changed: These are more costly than many other bb guns but if accuracy is important to you then they are worth the extra cost.
What others should know: Buy the Avanti precision ground shot to get the best accuracy from these guns!
Things I liked: Fun, fun and more fun to shoot. Accuracy, they are not kidding, for a smooth bore BB rifle, I was blown away. Threw the rear peep sight on and after three clicks up, was catching the 10 ring at 5meters. I haven't shot with a globe sight in 30+ years, since high school smallbore competition. That's with some tired old eyes.
Things I would have changed: Rear peep sight a little more solid on adjustment clicks.
What others should know: Hoping I'm allowed to give to my nephew to get him learning for gun safety and handling. No it's not powerful, but it is perfect for what it's intended for. I can easily see a child being able to cock and handle. Smaller children may need the butt stock shortened, easy enough with a saw if needed. Great learning tool.
can it kill a frog at short range? say 5-6 feet?
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? http://www.daisy.com/node/106
