Review this product
31 December 2008  

Things I liked: I ran a Cub Scout Day Camp BB gun range for a week last summer using this rifle. We had over 300 boys and about 30 sisters through the range that week and this rifle worked flawlessly. It is as accurate as described and was a great rifle for teaching both gun safety and marksmanship. Between groups and at lunch time I had a great time shooting this rifle. With the adjustable sight mounted it was easy to chew out the bullseyes on the Daisy official 5 meter targets. I had so much fun I bought two of these, one for my boys and another for me.
Things I would have changed: It would be great if they replaced the plastic cocking lever with a metal one. We didn't have any issues with breakage but it would make a nicer overall package.
What others should know: Get the adjustable sight, it's not perfect but it works much better than the sights that come on the rifle.

Things I liked: Extremely accuate and just the right size for my 10 year old Grandson. I did an online reseach looking for just the air rifle. All the information quoted by Daisy and Pyramyd held up. I'm very pleased with my purchase.
Things I would have changed: Nothing
What others should know: This particular air rifle is being used for NRA Postal Match for 8 - 15 year olds. It's a great gun and program to teach youngsters gun safety and competative shooting.

Things I liked: It's every bit as accurate as published. 1-inch shot groups from 30 feet are quite achieveable if you do your part. Great for teaching my children about shooting. What a blast.
Things I would have changed: Nothing.
What others should know: The Daisy 5899 peep sight comes with the rifle and mounts easily.

Things I liked: The 499 is the world's most accurate BB gun, and has been so since it was introduced in 1976. There is no better training airgun for young children than this one.
Things I would have changed: I wish the peep sight had more precision in the adjustments. Even the replacement sight lacks precision.
What others should know: This is a muzzle-loading single-shot. It is not a conventional BB gun - it is for target shooting. Everyone in the vicinity must wear safety glasses because steel BBs rebound like crazy. Be sure to also buy Avanti Precision Ground Shot to use in the gun.

Things I liked: Shoots great - very accurate.
Things I would have changed: The description from the company should include the fact that they pack a Daisy 5899 Receiver Sight (adjustable for windage/elevation) in the box, so that one does not unnecesarily order one.
What others should know: Great fun picking off things that you would usually only get close to hitting.
