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.
Things I liked:Sights, accuracy and value
Things I would have changed:Nothing
What others should know: I am not an airgunner, but got this for Indoor BB Gun League that my buddies and I are doing in my basement. Wish I would've bought this years ago!!! A great way of working on shooting technique when you can't get outside with the "real" guns. Fun to shoot, and very accurate.
