Daisy's Match Grade Avanti 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.

I haven't used it yet, but it's a well-built, comfortable to hold gun. The low fps should make it ideal for indoor shooting. The combo is great value for the money.Things I would have changed:
Nothing so far.What others should know:
Get the combo. I live in Canada and it was still cheaper to order from Pyramid Air.
It is what is described. Less than an inch, 5 shots, at 5 meters with all kinds of BB's, better with quality ammo.Things I would have changed:
Scope mount capableWhat others should know:
We also ordered a Lil' Duke BB rifle and the contrast is stark. Not reliable BB loading, 2 1/2 inch accuracy comparison. Loose stock after 1000 rounds, hard cocking....
Not much. Bought for visiting grand kids 12-14 yrs. Very accurate. Must use at 5 meters or less. ie. Weak! Returned because about half of BBs roll out of barrel if shooting down at slight angle like 15 degrees!Things I would have changed:
Price, power, magnet.What others should know:
I would not recommend this rifle.
Got a question or answer?
Can I get replacement inserts for the hooded front sight?
When Is Daisy going to come out with (I know slightly hard to cock) a Lever action repeater (Not muzzle loader like this one) of this adult size like this one that shoots a BB at least 450 FPS. I and everyone else would beat the door down to get one ! And No it doesn't have to be match grade like this Avanti.
Does it need co2
