Fantastic small game gun!
June 8, 2015
This is my favorite airgun and one-of my favorite guns period. It is easy cocking, light, quiet as a whisper and accurate. The trigger is very nice too! I have a Benjamin trail and trail np 2 and the trigger on the genesis is my favorite. I don't know if crosman did some work on it since it's a return, but the trigger is smooth, predictable and nice and crisp. The accuracy is very impressive too. At 40 yards I can hit my spinners every shot. At 20 the shots just make one big hole. The only thing I don't like about it is the red in the suppressor...that's it! I paid 300 for my Benjamin trail 2 with the upgraded scope and I like that gun too, but this one is my favorite. It was just over 1/3 of the price too!
Accurate, light, powerful, fits like a nice pair of jeans.

Good Gun, Bad Scope
June 4, 2015
I have had my benjamin genisis for over a year now and have had only one problem with it. The centerpoint scopes never work on the gun. Just so we are clear, it is a .22 caliber and the scope's reticle will jump around after about 15 shots. After having sent two scopes in to the company, with the exact same problems, I would recomend not buying a centerpoint scope for any rifles .22 caliber or above. I haven't tried the scopes on a .177 before so I personally would not know how well they would perform. As far as the rifle goes, it is a good caliber with good accuracy and feel. I have shot dove out to 134 yards with this air rifle and centered the breast. But this is because I know my gun well. Every person needs to get to know their guns before taking risky shots or having accidents. I have also shot more than 7000 pellets from the air rifle since I have had it. Yes I did say 7000 pellets, I do a ton of shooting just to stay up to date with my guns. I prefer using the cheap and accurate crosman domed and crosman hollowpoint pellets from a local wal-mart. They cost about $10.00 in my town but will vary everywhere you go. For $10.00 I can get 500 rounds of domed or hollowpoint pellets. About the scope I have put on the air rifle, the scope is a regular hunting scope for centerfire rifles and has been working great for me since I have had it. It is a $50.00 Tasco scope from wal-mart and has a magnification of 3-9x50mm. Even something as simple as that will be good for hunting. I have killed so much with the air rifle I do in fact feel confortable about shooting it everyday that I pick it up off the gun rack. I promise this article is 100% the truth and please go out and buy a benjamin, I like 'em and I would hope that you would too.
Accurate, reliable, good feeling gun.
Scope is not anything I would ever consider using on any of my guns ever again.

Very Good Rifle Good Accuracy
March 24, 2015
Bought this 0.22 pellet rifle refurbished. First thing I did was remove the scope to put on a CO2 rifle I have. I put an old Bushnell 4-12x40 with parallelax scope on this rifle and sighted it in at 10 yards in our basement. After four shots I'm now hitting a circle the size of a quarter consistently with Crosman hollow point pellets at 10-15 yards. Hits with plenty of power. Plan to sight it in again but at 25-30 yards to use for shooting starlings and prairie dogs. Guns still diesels a bit but I know this will go away shortly. I carefully examined it and found no sign of wear - rifle appears new. I shoot left handed so I reversed the adjustable stock part. Didn't have to raise it to fit me. It seems to be significantly more quiet than my other springer rifles and seems to have less kick. Some time I will make some adjustments on the trigger. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and would like to buy another Benjamin Genesis but in .177 caliber some time in the near future. I'm a 66 year old man enjoying new toys.
Comfortable to shoot, good weight, and very accurate. Kick is short and is quieter than most rifles out there. Looks good!
May have too much plastic which could wear off in the moving parts areas like when you cock it (Only time will tell). Scope that came with it seems cheap and more suited for a rifle with less kick and range,

This I is good rifle,but not a great one. First thing to do is change the scope. 2nd don't try to shoot it from the bench. It's by no means a tack driver. I shot over 20 different type pellets all shapes and sizes and weight. Only found 1 that shot good 18.21 H&N Baracuda Hunter. They chronyed at 675fps and 18+ fpe and 1inch grouping at 10-15 yards, anything farther then that your pushing it . So if your hunting medium size game like squirrel, rabbit, large crows, or pigeon than your fine because it shoots great from the standing or knealed position. So my overall opinion is just use for close range hunting.
Good feel and weight, very quiet, good power
Only found 1 pellet that worked. Can't shoot from bench. Cheap scope

Very nice, quiet, and accurate.
February 27, 2015
The rifle came with a 3 x 9 x 32 Center Point scope which is just fine. I zeroed it at 25 years with about 5 pellets, and could hit a quarter at that distance easily. If you think that purchasing a refurbished rifle from AGD is a risk, set your mind at ease. I have been purchasing refurbished rifles from them for years and have never been disappoint. Look at it this way, when you buy a new rifle, they are assembled, examined once, and maybe test fired once. Then it is packaged and sold. A refurbished rifle is repaired of the defect, carefully re-examined, test fired and then advertised for sale. I am sure the second exam exposes the rifle to far more scrutiny, meaning a more thorough inspection. In conclusion, this rifle was a bargain. It hits hard, silent, and accurate. The only thing you will hear is the pellet striking the can down range.
Feels good in the hand. Easily zeroed, silent, and accurate at distance.
So far none, however, it is early in the ownership of the rifle. There is a lot of plastic so I hope this will not be a problem in the long run. Benjamin / Crosman have built some really great air guns and I am hoping they got this one right.

Awesome first rifle
February 22, 2015
This is my first air rifle as an adult, I didnt want to spend alot to start and this one seemed perfect. Overall this thing looked brand new, the scope had a couple scratches touched up with a black marker on the bottom but no big deal. Mounted the scope and took the first shot and scope was almost dead on. The rifle cocks easy and smooth, shoots nice, the trigger could use some work. Looking for a first pellet rifle, this is a great choice.
The trigger could use work

Very Stealthy
February 20, 2015
I bought this gun about 3 weeks now and I'm in love with this gun. It is extremely quiet 1 to 5 I say 1 1/2. The impact of the bullet is louder than the bullet fire out of the barrel. I sighted and it is very accurate from 25 yards in quarter size group. I have 3 other guns that are spring piston that are so loud and compares to this Benjamin Genesis is like whispering. I got it for good price when there was a coupon...highly recommend this gun and I will buy Nitro Piston air gun from now on.
Extremely quiet Good price Accurate

Very Good Gun----7 Star Customer Service
January 26, 2015
I bought this gun from Air Gun Depot about 2 months ago. The gun shoots well and is very very quiet. I cleaned the gun and fired 50 shots then mounted the scope and zeroed it in at 50 yards. I have 4 rifles that are quiet. Number 5 here is dead quiet. That is not something that I have to be real concerned with but is critical for a friend of mine that lives in town and is worth noteing.Crosman Corp has issues with triggers on some of there guns. I reworked the trigger on this gun and another Crosman Corp gun that I own. I am retired now but was a Master Repair Machinist and Maintenance Mechanic by trade. This gun shot 1 in groups at 50 yards before I made changes to the trigger. It now shoots quarter size groups or better at 50 yards. This is a good gun for the money and has the potential to be a lot better.There is a lot of real nice features about this gun. I LIKE IT
The real story here is the customer service that I have recieved from AIR GUN DEPOT. Both guns that I bought from them came double boxed with good packing material--Top Notch Shipping I bought this gun as a refurb deal. There was a problem with the scope rings being 11 mm and the pictany rail being Weaver. To qualify this, with most any other refurb deal, you do not get a scope or rings, you get the gun only.I notified Air Gun DEPOT SERVICE and they gave me a direct number to Crosman. ( with a person on the other end of the phone) With most companys if you get that much you are doing good but with AIR GUN DEPOT they did a lot more. They notified me that they had been in contact with Crosman , opened a service ticket and gave me a ticket # with crosman and them and gave me a direct number to Air GUN DEPOT in case there were any more problems. I WAS STUNED THANK YOU AIR GUN DEPOT

Excellent Tool for the Money
December 15, 2014
Ordered this refurbished from AirgunDepot, mounted my own scope and within minutes was tearing through the same hole at 20 yards. Very accurate with Crosman pointed pellets, Benjamin Discovery and Gamo hunter pellets as well. Will be using it for close range squirrel hunting here in the swamps and for sniping jack rabbits and desert cotton tails when out west.. The trigger adjusted well on mine with the stock adjusting screw. Noise level was so quiet I had to fire it at a couple of metal targets just to make sure it was throwing pellets out the front. A very quiet gun, much quieter than my Ruger Air Magnum, not as powerful but more accurate and does not disturb the neighbors. All in all I'd say this is one fine piece of equipment for what I'll be using it for. Can't say enough about the customer service at AirgunDepot and the price was more than competitive. These will be my go to guys from now on for my air gun needs.
Easy to cock, low noise level. Powerful enough to dispatch small game and pests.
No iron sights.

Awesome rifle glad I purchased it wasn't to sure being it was the refurb but so glad I did. Sweet shooting and very hard hitting. Reason for the 4 stars is the scope was the wrong one and the rings were as well but the very helpful people here helped me out and crosman is sending right one.

Genesis .22 break barrel
July 18, 2014
power is very good. accuracy is still coming on(not broken in quite yet) the suppressor seems to actually work well. MY neighbor(AT APPROX 45 YDS.) ASKED ME WHAT THE WHAT THE PA-TINK sound was he could hear was several days after it arrived. When I showed him he said he thought I had taken up using a sling- shot but had not considered an air rifle, this unit has an adjustable trigger and it needs all of it. I have the screw all the way in now and MOST of the creep is gone but the pull is still fairly stiff for accurate work. the scope is clear and has good relefe but really needs to have an AO objective, Stock fits good,but the adj. cheak pice is prob. not nessicary. overall very pleased but the trigger pull is a bit too stif and the scope NEEDS an adjustable objective lens,
Nitro piston is smooth and hits hard ,good accuracy and good stock feel and fit. solid scope mount. scope is clear and responds to adj. well.
needs scope up grade (adj. odjective)

Magnum wow
June 19, 2014
I wanted a hard hitting pest destroying gun. I had no idea what i was getting. First of all at this price is unbelievable for what you are getting. This gun is a beast. You better be in good shape to cock this bad boy its quite a pull. The reward for that effort is evident in each shot. With the nitro piston the scope destroying vibration is replaced by a pretty good recoil in the butt pad. Once you fire you have no doubt you have sent some lead down range with some oomph behind it. I found Daisy pointed precision max 14.3 to be pretty accurate. I also used gamo round ball 15.43 which blew through 1 inch cedar plank at 10 yards with ease. I have owned two springers in the last ten years which were 1000 fps 177 guns. This thing seems to have twice the power. I know people complain about scopes frequently but this centerpoint is certainly better than the four power gamo that came with my other gun and even better than the aftermarket Tasco 3X9 50 I have on the other. Site picture very clear and easily adjusted to zero in a few shots. The adjustable cheek piece helped with immediate comfort with this gun. The trigger is a little stiff and may cause the unfamiliar to pull off target for a while. Using 22 subsonic by itself reduces report plus the silencer so the gun is acceptable in the backyard
Big time power, adjustable cheek piece, very nice scope, quality built, silencer, adjustable two stage trigger, black out scheme with tacky grip surfaces, looks bad
trigger but it may loosen up with some real use

This is a great airgun. It is powerful and accurate. The scope that comes with this airgun is pretty good also. This has a great feel and has an adjustable cheek pad that helps a lot with aiming this airgun. I would recommend this to everyone if you need a good solid airgun.

Awsom power & accurcy.
June 9, 2014
Genesis is the easiest pellet rifle I have ever shot. After break in and modifying the trigger I found it to be almost as powerful as my Trail NP 22 ca...Some say the breach is hard to open , ,use some good gel type synthetic lubricant on both sides of the latch and it will pop right open. I intend to sell my NP Trail 22. It shoots better than I can manage a rifle.At 35 Yards it is deadly with my Nc Star red dot sight.Very quite and smooth..Add a lot of Burch Wood synthetic spray around the outside of the gas piston and also a liberal amount in the air discharge port to lube piston seal and it will get supersonic for several shots. The FPS will increase and stay much higher. Be careful to use a pure synthetic lubricant ,if you use a hydro carbon base oil it could explode the air chamber and hurt you.
Make a 177 just like it. Love this rifle ,greate value.
None ,its agreat rifle in every way.

Very comfortable, quiet and accurate
April 6, 2014
This is one of the best quality air rifles I have shot. The break over is funny in that you have to slap the barrel to unlock and begin the cocking process (unlike my Gamo big cat - just pull down on it). The ergonomics of this rifle are awesome with its adjustable cheek rest and soft rubber hand grips. It hugs your shoulder almost like it belongs there. This gun is very quiet and is very suitable for shooting in those small neighborhoods. The scope is quite adequate for an air rifle. I have heard several review complaints about the focus being blurry after adjusting zoom past 7. Just a little secret for all those reviewers. The objective lens is adjustable and will clear things up. Just remove ring from end of scope, then turn the threaded section(this will adj the objective lens), and then re install ring. I recommend doing this with zoom power set at 9 (full zoom) while looking at an object at least 50 or more yards away. Accuracy is acceptable though I hope to see some improvement as the rifle breaks in. Being a .22 is a bonus in this rifle setup as it produces some great knock down power for an air rifle. Overall, this is the ticket for those pesky squirrels that keep getting in your bird feeder.
ergonomic design Adjustable cheek rest Rubber comfort grips Excellent suppresor (very quiet) .22 caliber nice scope included no tank refills required picatinny rail incorporated into barrel

I think this rifle waste the money. This rifle looks good and has a very good feel. The gun could make the big damage within 35 feet. I tested this gun with Crosman Field Hunting .22 Cal, 14.3 Grains, pointed pellets ammo. It getting 745fps. After 35 feet, it get inaccurate and weak. It come with 3-9x32 centerpoint scope. The scope is acceptable. I mean what you can expect with this price gun. Another thing, I am not sure the gun which airgundepot ship to me is the brand new gun. When I opened the box, it missed a screw on stock, also, it has scratches on gun body and one screw. I contacted airgundepot, the customer service let me contact Crosman. I called them many times, nobody response me. I will post the pictures about those scratches.
The silencer really does cut down shooting noise. Looks good.
The trigger is big problem. This is my fourth air rifle. My other three is gamo extreme hunter, hatson 85 and gamo silent stalk IGT whisper. I don't need to pull a mile away to shoot. I like SAT trigger. Customer service. Hope Crosman or airgundepot could help me.

Almost Great
December 30, 2013
The rifle is made of quality materials and is finished well. The Nitro Piston performs as advertised and the included Centerpoint scope and rings are of good quality. The only issue with the gun is the trigger pull. I've never owned a firearm where the trigger pull was so long. This issue ultimately affects the accuracy of the rifle. The fortunate thing however is that this is well documented among air rifle enthusiasts, and so aftermarket trigger options as well as DIYer mods can easily remedy this issue. If you're not the type willing to purchase the mod or do one yourself, then you'd probably want to go with another option. I got the gun at a great sale price and was ok doing the mod. It works great, and the gun now shoots accurately! If the trigger been properly designed and tuned from the factory, I would have rated the gun with five stars.
- Quality construction - Excellent fit and finish - Good scope - Excellent power - Quieter and smoother firing (Nitro Piston) - Easy to mod/fix the trigger - Accuracy with new/modded trigger
- Long trigger pull (from the factory) - Inconsistent accuracy with stock trigger

great pellet rifle
December 21, 2013
The genesis is one great air rifle. It's one of the few rifles where you get more than you pay for. It is very accurate and hard hitting. I've found several pellets that provide great accuracy and shoot to the same point. I would recommend it to everyone, Buy one and you won't be disappointed.
Accurate, Powerful, adjusable stock, style, comfortable , and a great bargain for the money
did not come with the 3-9X32 mm A.O. scope as advertised on site, but did ship with a 3-9X32mm scope. No other cons. Just a great air rifle at on great price
