David Duncan won our facebook contest to name this airgun combo!

Daisy's Champion 499 is for shooters 10 years and older who want to learn the basics of shooting. 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.

This special kit includes everything you need to start shooting the minute it arrives. Nothing else to buy!

The Monte Carlo wood stock and wood forearm will last through years of use. And youthful shooters will find the lever-action cocking mechanism easy to use. The hooded front sight and the Daisy 5899 rear peep sight help shooters quickly acquire the target. (It's always best to start a shooter with open sights instead of a scope.) The 499 is a muzzleloader, and the BB is held in place by a magnetic retainer until you pull the trigger. 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: Accurate, Accurate, Accurate out of the box. It took only 6 shots to get into the bulls-eye with about 20 clicks up and to the right. The mounted front peep sight is perfect for 5 meter targets. There are other inserts if desired. Once sighted in, shooting prone I put 10 shots in one hole less than 2 BB's wide using several different grips and I still have not gotten used to the trigger yet. It is mind boggling how good I will do when I get used to the rifle. I did not expect the peep rear sight to be so good. Stock , gun, finish all excellent. Trigger has a slight creep but breaks cleanly and requires little effort. I recommend the western classic package for the targets and Avanti BB's. Loading is the easiest of any single shot, simply drop the BB into the large barrel opening. It was so simple and fast I thought I did something wrong......then I hit the bulls-eye and I haven't stopped smiling since. I expected a very good rifle but got perfection. Bravo!

Things I would have changed: If I wanted to be really picky it would be nice to have butt pad inserts available at extra cost for people like me with longer arms but I will be happy to make due with a slip on recoil pad.

What others should know: I was looking at all the rifles up to 1000$ but for a gun you can shoot in your house and be accurate why bother. How often can you get to the range? Nothing better than being able to shoot at home for convenience. The others are more powerful but not more accurate at this distance and you would need a much more elaborate trap and be a lot noisier. I think it would be foolish to shoot anything other than the best/most accurate Avanti's ground shot. People complain about the cost but with the buy 3 get one free and at 210 shots per dollar only Scrooge should complain.

Things I liked: True to the advertising, it is quite accurate. My 8 yr old son has no problem with cocking and handling it, while my 4 yr son still needs to grow into it. The stock is nice and the gun is well balanced. The peep site is fairly intuitive which is helping with training.

Things I would have changed: The trigger has tons of take up, but is just light enough that it doesn't seem to force a pull when shooting.

What others should know: The rear peep and hooded front site make shooting at solid dark targets (e.g., shoot n c targets)very difficult.

Things I liked: I installed the rear sight, put up a target, stepped off 5 meters, and put two rounds touching each other about 1/4" high and dead center above the bullseye. VERY accurate.

Things I would have changed: Less plastic.

What others should know: Easily the most accurate BB gun I have ever shot.
