Daisy's Match Grade Champion 499B 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 499B 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 499B 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:

Robust stocks, extreme accuracy, sights.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing.

What others should know:

This is the ultimate indoor rifle. I never dreamed of being able to stack bbs into one hole. I used to be satisfied with a 1.5" group from my other bb guns and this thing has better accuracy than some of my nicer pellet rifles. It's not a powerhouse by any means, but it will deliver ridiculously tight groups at moderate range. I love it.

Things I liked:

This thing just shoots really good. The whole shot-cycle is smooth and solid. There is no anti bear-trap ratcheting, no spring twang and no grind in the cocking stroke at all. I'm glad it uses BBs because I'm going to shoot it a lot and even the match grade BBs are a bargain compared to good pellets. The second five shot group through mine was under 1/4" at 15 yards. Sure, it was probably at least partially luck, but I haven't shot another BB gun that even comes close to that level of accuracy.

Things I would have changed:

I WISH it still came with the old style rear sight group and the diopter. The old school rear sight group just looks super cool. Oh well, hope one pops up on ebay sometime. It should come with the metal cocking lever. I'd like a stock extension or spacer for us adults.

What others should know:

The combo is worth the extra $4. The match grade BBs and targets are worth that, I don't care about the Shatter Blast targets, I'll give those away probably. Word is, you can drop a Red Ryder Mainspring in for over 400 fps with no loss in accuracy. I'm going to find out. I have the metal cocking lever on the way too.

Things I liked:

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.

  • Donald from USA asked:

    Does the Daisy medallion still come for the stock?

    • James from USA asked:

      Can I get replacement inserts for the hooded front sight?

      • John from USA asked:

        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.
