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: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.

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.
