    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!

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

    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.

    Things I liked:I bought one of these 499's for my 10 year old son for Christmas after seeing this bundle and reading the 499 reviews. While he still has some practice to get full potential from the rifle, I can easily obliterate the black center out of one of the NRA 5M BB target in just a few shots with this puppy. The rifle can shoot! I'm sure I'm still the weak link. It is light, easy to cock and load, and simply does what it says. You can also safely practice indoors with a bullet trap or other backstop without going out to a range or other facility. You might be able to get a starter .22 as a range option for a little more $$$, but I would still consider the Daisy/Avanti 499 as a indoor and all weather excellent training / practice tool.
    Things I would have changed:The trigger is a bit spongy but hey at this price I feel it is pretty well made and is a good fit for smaller shooters. I also would like to see the rear sight base made from metal vs. plastic to ensure proper sight fit.
    What others should know:Great rifle and great bundle.

    Things I liked:Insanely accurate! Just plain fun to shoot.
    Things I would have changed:Size of the rear peep. I wish it was a bit smaller. If that ever became an option, I would jump on it.
    What others should know:It comes with a nylon sling but you will need to install the stud for the sling, as well as the rear sight. Not complaining. This allowed me to set the stud where it worked best for my daughter. Just be ready for that.
