i looked for one this spring when I bought my SX3. They are definetly hard to find. If I remember correctly they had problems with the gun so they pushed back the release date, that was last year though. i would definetly put some research into this gun before buying.

Lots of problems with the first 3000 or so that were released. Remington made some part upgrades in the model and apparently those after the serial #3000(roughly) have been working well.

The are hard to find because they are a special order from the sales rep side of things. The store has to special order it from their supplier and their supplier has to special order it from Remington.

I wouldn't expect to see them on the shelves on a regular basis until Remington is sure they have worked out all the kinks. I think initially they pushed them out the door because of all the hype that was out there and because they were way behind their initial release date. They were to come out in 2005, hence the 05 in 105. I don't know if they were trying to beat another company to the punch with a bottom eject auto or not. Haven't heard any rumblings about competition but you never know.

I think Remington may have made a huge mistake by letting this gun out before it was ready. It really has caused a lot of Remington bashing on other sites. Can't really blame people for being mad when they buy a $1200 gun and it goes back three or four times to Remington.

I had the opportunity to handle one and to take it apart and put it back together. It takes some getting used to but I think it's like anything else, you do it a few times and it's second nature. As far as handling and such. This gun comes up really nice and it swings exceptionally well. Slightly front heavy. It points well and it felt perfect for me. It is a nice looking gun with the carbon fiber and titanium reciever. The wood is a little plain. It's not your daddy auto thats for sure. It looks strange but really, hmmm... cool!

If things go well with the gun I may consider buying one next year. I need some more positive reports.

My dad has one and it is a very nice gun. His was purchased after the bugs were worked out of the first batch. He has not had any issues with it and many rounds have been fired through it.

I use a benelli legacy and can switch to the 105 CTI very easily. The legacy is faster to swing but the CTI has less felt recoil and the second shot seems easier.

If I had the extra $1200 a 105 CTI would be in my gun cabinet.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
