Is there a guide or some booklet that details of variations of the model 99 during its production?

Thanks, I have what appears to be 5 variations. The post below yours has the info from the guidebook. Interestingly, it does not include the 1967 produced 99 Champion.

I saw a 99 for sale and it was referred to as "Variation" 3. As I have indicated, I believe I have 5 different models. Anybody have any ideas.

The first thing I would want to know is, whose idea of the model 99 variations is the seller using, and where can it be seen?

It's my opinion that "variations" are subjective at best. What constitutes a variation to one might not to another. Especially without a description of the individual variations. 

For example, do you count the Quick Kill guns as a variation? The Quick Skill's as another? Lucky McDaniel's as another? 

What about the first model 99s that had a gravity feed shot tube- it it a separate variation from the exact same gun that came with a spring loaded shot tube? Are the two different rear sight mounts separate variations? Are Heddon/Victor Comptometer-stamped guns a variation?

Then there's straight stock models versus monte carlo-style stocks. Then there are coil spring trigger return springs vs. leaf trigger return spring triggers, as well as thin trigger blade models that came before the thicker trigger blades- are they, too, "variations"? Then what about Champion models, or guns having inlaid stocks with "Official Shooting Education BB Gun By Daisy", or guns with a "US Junior C of C Official Model" stock sticker?

Yes, variations become very subjective, It may be more in the line of different "issues" such as the Champion 99, only produced in 1967. The stock configuration, front and rear sights, and shot tube seem to be the main characteristics that may be used for comparing. I have yet to see a 99B with the safety. The stamping may be another area.

I'm not sure where you're information came from, but I can offer the following for you to research. I am not arguing, I am relaying what I have found and nothing more.

The Model 99 "Champion" guns marked in silkscreen were made over a much longer period than a single year. I have documented a 99 Champion with Lot No. J706838, meaning it was stamped Sept. 1977.

All "B" guns (1938B, 105B, 95B, 99B, 111B, etc.) have safeties. I own a 99B and I can attest it has a safety, too. It's also marked with "Champion" on the side of the receiver. It was stamped May 1979.

Thanks, that's good information. I have seen the year 1967 as the only issue year in several places, which were for sale listings on several sites. It could be that someone stated it and it has proliferated through the internet. I have only been interested in the 09 since May, so I am a novice and appreciate any and all impute.
