I hope to see more people respond, to get a firm outline of the Model 99 issues.

SERVICE MANUAL https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/grantthekiwisairgunforum/dave-albert-daisy-resource-t3831-s30.html#p9495

The first recorded stamping of a Reg. No. on a 99 is M135899 on 4/20/1959.  Since the 99 was first made in 1959 and all guns made after 1952 had Reg. No.s, those guns stamped on 4/20/1959 were the first ones made.

REG NO. M393831:

Folks seem to have trouble using the forum's photo attachment feature. I use imjur as a "host" then copy/paste the photo link from there. Other photo hosting sites work similarly. There's also a thread about posting photos, click here: Posting Photos

This model 99 was made during the Heddon/Victor Comptometer era (stamped Sept. 1975). One giveaway is the sticker on the lever flange. Guns having the sticker typically were made in the early to mid-'70s. Even when the sticker is missing, often the adhesive will remain as a witness mark of the sticker. The receiver stamping isn't easy to read, but it says "Division VICTOR COMPTOMETER CORPORATION".

During the Heddon/Victor era, a lot of changes were afoot. This is a model 99 Champion made about May 1976. It uses a 'transitional' shot tube that bridged the early style shot tube to the one we use today. The modern model 25 spring loaded shot tube we use today is one instance where newer is definitely better. 

Unfortunately, the model 99B uses the same non removable gravity feed shot tube as the model 1938B Red Ryder. It would have been better had they opted to use the spring loaded shot tube.

A few model 99 stock examples. There were also monte carlo style stocks used without the inletting for a medallion like shown at the bottom.

As Cobalt357 pointed out, there are lots of variations.  I have a gravity feed 99 "bottle cap", with the JC sticker on the stock.  Not sure if Daisy used up some old stamped guns for the new JC program in '59-60 while the litigation over the gravity feed was under way and did not offer them for retail sale?
