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.

    • The Schrillary reich didnt compromise Bernie? And when hasnt the biased media compromised an election in recent memory? Nick is a hack and consistently posts 2nd grade propaganda, hes sold out to the party. They've been exposed and are resorting to extremes.  They went all in with obama and got called, he had far more to do with the outcome of the elections than anything  leaked by anyone.  Now its the fake blame game, humorous to say the least.   Snowflake butthurt apparently leads to desperation.
    • Really??? Catfish is my favorite fish.
    • I suspect you haven't visited this year or seen the reports.     And, for the record, I didn't say I was catching "tons" on Mille Lacs, but it was the best lake I've visited in the last two years.  And it wasn't even close.    
    • I think Schells is Minnesota's oldest brewer, so they must be doing something right.   I know some guys from New Ulm, and they all drink Schells.   That's how I got turned onto it in the first place.  Never got burned out on it, though..
    • Sink or swim? I am sure that some of you have heard that if you put seeds in water the ones that sink are better then the ones that float. I have heard this from the old guys but I have never tried it myself. Well I found myself with some radish seeds and I decided to pour them into a cup of water and sure enough about half sunk to the bottom while the rest floated. I got out a bowl and filled it with coconut husk planting mix and put the floaters on one side and the sinkers on the other. I am now waiting to see what side comes up first or if both sides will come up at the same time.   Any comments? Has anyone else heard of this and does anyone check their seeds before planting?
    • Maybe he's just hungry............    
    • Catfish!! I haven't had that in about ten years! Dang, that looks good! 
    • All day long you sit here and demand answers from everyone else but you never answer anyone else's questions. I wonder why that is?    
    • I would guess even Fletcher would say Stall has passed all expectations. I will give credit to Fletcher for building this team from absolute zero, we had almost no skill or prospects when he took over,  sure it took longer than we wanted but right now it is worth it. No doubt luck can play a roll, most GM's don't have a Suter, Parise, Stall & BB fall into their lap but quality drafting and development are also paying big dividends right now. We also have a lot of high end prospects that can fill in for the vets in the coming years. A cup is still a long ways away but this year is probably the best NHL team the state has ever seen.
