Just went through the 2009 Remington catalog, and while they have one of the more impressive line ups of shotguns and rifles they've had in years - they no longer catalog a muzzleloader.
The Genesis, introduced 3 or 4 years ago, was made in Spain. (At the same plant where Traditions muzzleloaders are made.) And I think that once that word got out, no one was really interested in a Spanish-Made-Remington-Muzzleloader.
I've heard from several Genesis owners who claimed to get great accuracy with their rifles. I've shot several of the Traditions rifles, which feature the same barrel, and they have been extremely accurate.
I know the head of marketing at Remington, and took the liberty to drop him an e-mail and ask about whether or not Remington has dropped the Genesis line. As soon as I find out something, I'll get back on here and share what I learn.
