Since the end of the 19th Century, Americans have chosen Daisy Outdoor Products BB guns to teach the basics of gun safety and marksmanship to their kids. Although Daisy BB guns are essentially woven into the fabric of America's gun culture, they refuse to rest on their laurels, and continue to innovate while maintaining their sterling record of safety, sturdiness and accuracy. That's why their introduction of their all-new Model 1999 BB Gun, available in three versions, is so exciting to parents, kids and kids-at-heart. 

The Daisy 1999 isn't just your old Red Ryder with cool stocks added (although that would be fun, too). These are very much a new line of BB guns. Of course, each version features some traditional Daisy features – 650 BB capacity, lever action, trigger block safety – but that’s where the similarities end.

You’ll likely first notice the stock and forearms. The Model 1999DB is “Daisy Blue,” a teal-like blue color. The Model 1999C is the Camo version, and the Model 1999P is pink. The next major difference is the lever – the Model 1999 features a large loop lever. Next is the sights; the rear sight is adjustable for windage and elevation and the front is bright fiber optic.

Each Model 1999 features solid Daisy workmanship and durability. Made for youth shooters age 10 and older, the Model 1999 measures 35.4 inches in length and weighs just 2.2 pounds. We don't yet have an MSRP or an availability date, but our suspicions are that the 1999 will turn out to be the holiday gift for American kids this year!
