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.



The most accurate BB gun in the world! That's what Daisy claims. And, it's true!

Things I liked:

Update after shooting a couple weeks and adding a Sightmark Mini-Shot - it is a great shooting gun for my basement 6 meter range - Love it with the Red Dot sight.

Things I would have changed:

I had to countersink the top rear stock screw hole and use a flat top screw to make the whole sight rail accomodate the red dot. change the SPECs page to Scopeable YES and bundle it withe the small Hawke Red Dot for dovetail rails.

What others should know:

buy either the Hawke Vantage red dot for 11mm rails or the sightmark mini shot w an 11mm rail adaptor plate to go with this gun. use precision daisy match BBs.

Things I liked:

This Gun Does what it is supposed to do. in a small basement range, 15-20ft, it shoots dime sized (or less) groups with Daisy precision BBs. The small 11mm rail for the peep sight accepts a small 11mm to picatinny rail adaptor and allows me to mount a red dot optic to accomodate my aging eyesight. I have a Sig Romeo 5 w 11mm rail adaptor, on it currently and it is working quite well. A Bushnell TRS-25 could be a good choice or the sightmark Mini-Shot Aspec or Hawke Vantage. It is large enough to fit an Adult male, as well as youngsters. it is easy to use, charge and shoot.

Things I would have changed:

There is not much to want to change as this gun is what it is. I will plan to look for a pad to increase the length of pull. There are a few YouTube videos on maintaining these rifles for match level shooting that mention that care must be taken not to damage the Shot tube and abutment plate. And, dont get oil into the shot tube (barrel). it would be nice to have a decent picatinny rail on this rifle for optics, but the rail it has, with an adaptor, supports small red dots as well as the included peep sight.

What others should know:

One must hold the rifle vertically when dropping a single BB down the bore and hold it close to your ear anf listen for the quiet click the BB makes as it attaches to the magnet at the abuttment plate before you shoulder the rifle to shoot, or the BB may roll out or the shot will not be true. Use precision Daisy BB or Umarex precision BBs only. dont use old, dirty, re-used or cheaper BBs. There are a few YouTube videos on maintaining these rifles for match level shooting that mention how to maintain and optimize these guns, be sure to google Daisy 499b accuracy tips and view the videos there. all in all this is a good rifle for what it is and does. if you have aging eyes add a good red dot sight using an 11mm adaptor. use precision BBs

Things I liked:

I can hit a dime consistently from 50ft away. Super repeatable. Would be a great trainer for kids, low cocking effort, simple controls, light, and is more accurate than any bb gun i've ever shot. Keep in mind its only 240fps. This is the perfect backyard pop can killer. I had that similar looking "red ryder' bb gun, but this one is like 5-10x more finely made,

Things I would have changed:

I hadn't realized it was a muzzel loader; which is fine, this is solely a plinking/target rifle; but it would be neat if Air Venturi make a version with a barrel tube mag. But thats a minor complaint. The price was kinda steep considering the red ryder is like 50 bucks; but accuracy costs money, and that diopter sight isn't cheap

What others should know:

Might wanna buttstock pad if'n you're an adult; otherwise the pull is short, and you're a little too close to the diopter; BUT its still totally useable and accurate.

    Will this gun work properly when using the Air Venturi Dust Devil Mk2 Frangible BBs

    • Mike from USA asked:

      I hope this Daisy is not made in China & out of plastic like the other Daisy guns. So were is it made & how much plastic is in one?

      • Thor from USA asked:

        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?
