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.

Things I liked: This is the greatest bb gun ever made.

Things I would have changed: Not much. but showing the difference between the 499/499B would be helpful.

What others should know: My 499 B came without the sling. But, James got Daisy to send me the parts.

Things I liked: This is a simple no-frills spring piston air gun, that just happens to be match-grade accurate! Well, I guess the Williams-style diopter rear sight and and interchangeable front inserts are frills, but based on how accurate this gun is, they're necessary!

Things I would have changed: Not a thing!

What others should know: I bought this air gun for my wife, or so I thought. She loves it, but I'll admit that it has become my go-to basement target shooter! It may look like a Red Ryder, but the similarities end there. The cocking lever is metal, which along with the wooden forearm and stock give it a nice old-school feel. The trigger has a bit of a long throw but it's consistent. The velocity on mine is also very consistent at about 237 fps using Daisy Match-Grade Steel BBs. That combined with the fact that it's a muzzle loader (meaning no moving parts or wiggle room where the BB seats) is why it's so accurate. And accurate it is! I find the included diopter sight to be just fine and I have no plans on upgrading it. At 5 yards this gun will hit EXACTLY where you aim it. It's the perfect training piece and is excellent for learning (or reinforcing) proper technique. I wish this had been my first BB gun as a kid. It's reliable, accurate and fun to shoot. What more can you ask for? Highly recommended!!!

Things I liked: Accuracy. Overall finish. Removable barrel for easy cleaning. Assortment of front sights. Trigger pull is fairly smooth.

Things I would have changed: Sights are extremely susceptible to temperature change, and "walk" accordingly. Groups remain the same, but the point of aim changes. This was frustrating when transitioning from indoor to outdoor shooting and vice versa.

What others should know: The first Avanti 499 i ordered lost the BB retaining magnet and had to be returned. However PyramydAir sent me a new one without any problems and its been shooting well for the last 6 months. I would have given this gun a higher rating, but i must rate it 1 star less due to malfunctions.

  • Big from Canada asked:

    too bad it is single shot. Is there such thing as an accurate BB break barrel or under lever repeater?

    • Tyler from USA:

      That depends on your definition of accurate.

  • Richard from USA asked:

    will lasso scope mount fit ?

    • Tyler from USA:

      No
