Remington Genesis for $99?

Is this gun worth buying? It can be had from cabelas for $99 after a mail in rebate.

Cabela's -- Remington Genesis™ Rifle - Blue/Black

I don't currently have a muzzleloader but would like the 2 extra weeks of deer season before rifle season opens.

I wouldn't be posting on this site if I didn't want to know if thing was a shooter. So, how does she do, and how far? If anyone has any experience with this muzzleloader then please share it.

Thanks for help, Wyatt

Wyatt:
I bought my first muzzleloader last year. Like you, I wanted to extend my season. I also didn't want to spend a bunch of money on the project. So I looked at all the mid-priced muzzleloaders out there - including the Genesis. After looking at several in stores, I opted against the Genesis because I thought the cam-action breech might get broken in the field.

Ultimately I chose a CVA Optima Pro. I found out that Gander Mountain sells factory refurbished guns. At that time, the Optima Pros were selling for $329 and I picked up mine for $179.

Any of the guns that can handle 150grain charges can easily shoot 200+ yards if you can get the accuracy.

Thanks for the quick reply .280fan. I was concerned that the cam-action breach would get in the way of mounting a scope. Thanks for the heads-up.

wyatt:
I thought of the possibility that the breech design on the Genesis might make mounting a scope difficult, but ultimately that's just finding scope rings that are high enough.

The decision factor for me was the possibility of getting that breech caught on something while it was open. Seemed to me that it might easily be torn off or just as bad, damaged. In the field unusable is unusable.
