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.

It's a lot of fun on my little 3 meter living room range. Using the Daisy precision ground shot it will put them in one hole until I screw up.Things I would have changed:
Not much. A better trigger but I know that would add to the price.
A very accurate .BB gun. It has a removable barrel for easy cleaning. A great peep sight which is easy to set. I read the reviews on this gun and had to try one. I have not been disappointed, and I have been air gunning for over 60 years.Things I would have changed:
Front sight should be screw on type not spring loaded. It is hard to change the inserts.What others should know:
A real fun gun to shoot paper targets or pop cycle sticks from 30 feet. Velocity 265 FPS on my chronograph.
It's the most accurate BB gun out of the box I've had the pleasure of shooting. I had friend buy 2 and he turned me on to itThings I would have changed:
NothingWhat others should know:
It's a single shot BB gun. You have to put the sight on. It comes in the box with the gun. Some assembly required. Comes with an assortment of front sights.
Got a question or answer?
3 questions: Q-1: Did anyone else receive a 499-B after ordering a 499? Q-2: Did anyone else NOT receive the separate inserts for the front sight? Q-3: Did anyone else NOT receive a manual with their Daisy 499/499B rifle?
What are the differences between the 499 vs the 499-B ?
Is there no magazine for ammo or must I load 1 BB for each shot?
The model 499 is a single shot loader.
