The fiber optic front sight is easy to see and makes the gun particularly useful for hunting at dawn and dusk.
The forearm is also stippled. The micrometer rear sight has fiber optic tubes.
The Genesis has a synthetic stock with a raised cheekpiece on both sides, making this breakbarrel rifle suitable for lefties, too. Note the stippling on the grip. The thumbhole stock makes the gun lighter and gives you a better grip on things.

Things I liked: Powerful gun, accurate when you have the correct pellets
Things I would have changed: Terrible scope mounts.. knocked off roughly every 30 shots. I got rid of mine.
What others should know: Gun works well with H&N sports silver point pellets
Things I liked: accurate, accurate, ACCURATE! stock feels awesome when shouldered, almost has a tactical feel to it. everything else i said in my previous review
Things I would have changed: nothing. maybe a nickel plated version or a wooden stock. or a model without sights
What others should know: got that barrel problem fixed so i figured i should write a better review. got my scope put on and dialed in, and this thing is a real laser gun. had a repair dot for a shoot-n-c target i was using as a bull, about 25-30 yards out and all 6 pellets fired were inside, completely covered by a quarter. probably capable of better accuracy cause though my poi didn't leave the bull, i was all over it. shot a bird that had to have been about 50 yards away and the pellet entered right where i was aiming. now that this gun is at full potential i'll never get rid of it. if you are having trouble eliminating barrel wobble there are plenty of ways to fix it if you do some searching on the net, don't let that stop you from getting this gun, its a BEAST!!!
Things I liked: Nice feel to the stock. Adjustable cheek rest.
Things I would have changed: Different scope, mine holds zero, but the screws come loose as I shoot. The gun is loud and vibrates allot for a springer. Its very pellet picky. Long break-in period. The mount that came with the rifle, didn't have a stop pin that would align with the hole on the rail.
What others should know: This was my first adult air rifle. I bought it a few years ago when the Genesis first came out. Now I have had time to address the issues with this rifle, and use other air guns, so now I have something to compare it to. I was having major accuracy issues. The gun was also dieseling badly at the time, although I didn't know it. The scope mount was also sliding on the rail as I would shoot. I then found Pyramyd's website and learned what issues the rifle and myself were having. I replaced the scope mount with one that has a proper scope stop pin, and the sliding issues stopped. I also learned the proper hold and have had time to shoot the rifle enough to get it to stop dieseling. I went through almost 2 dozen different pellets before I found that this guns seems to like the Gamo Tomahawk. I don't like Gamo pellets, as they don't work well in any of my other airguns, but will stick with them for this one until I find something better. Overall its a good rifle and keeps getting better with use. It's hard to find a good pellet for it, but once you do you'll be happy with it.
