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.

    • Well I had a little project that we found after buying our camper used. It had a leak in the back corner which 3 other same type campers in our camp ground had in the same spot. I sealed the roof a few years ago but have not had time to tackle the soft floor in that corner. Spent one weekend ripping out to find out what I had and a 3 day weekend repairing it. Had to build boxes as new supports to tie into the good wood past the rotted area. Really glad there were two metal frame supports under that end as I could span them with the new wood. Re-insulated and put new plywood down and it's looks great. Now my wife doesn't have to worry about getting into her side of the bed without going through the floor!        
    • Well I guess I could close the loop on my water heater since I finally had time to look at it.     I haven’t pulled the element yet but have filled the water and run through everything with my meter.  I’m 99% sure it’s the element.  I have 120V to it and it Ohms out at 2.  I figure that’s the water giving me that reading since the elements should Ohm out at 10 or more.  Basic rule I learned in shop: Power to the load; load don’t work; load is broken.  Looks like a $15 part.   What I did enjoy learning is getting the propane part of the heater operational.  Never had that before since the wire harness was apparently always disconnected from the ignition module.  I plugged that in and she fired right up.   Now to get my sealants put on tomorrow and clean and lube the bumpout gaskets.  I bought some LED light bulbs to try also.  And time to get a bigger TV installed in the main living area.  That 13 inches just doesn’t cut it with my eyes anymore!
    • Prespawn might be a stretch but I bet you see them on the beds.  Late start/almost no spring in these parts but the water has warmed quickly once the ice finally left.   Last weekend, at about the same latitude as OTC (assuming that’s where you’re headed) the males were all over in the shallows.  Didn’t see many bass beds yet and didn’t see any big females but they’re getting close.  Didn’t have a way to check temps so I can’t tell ya that, just what I saw.   Heading to Ely this weekend - I’ll have temps and observations from there next week.
    • So Fenton is the pick, maybe we can sell off our talent and pickup some middling speedsters/diamonds in the rough and make a vegas like run. 
    • It is not looking good from our end. I finally got Morgan out yesterday and she came to full draw on a nice tom but he busted her on the draw and scooted out of there. I got a shot off at him at 20 yards and he was walking and I didn't quite lead him enough. I clipped feathers back in high but he was fine otherwise.   I have family obligations this coming weekend and stuff going on the following weekend. There's a good chance that our turkey season is over.  If this was Ryan without the tag he would be pushing hard and still chomping at the bit to shoot something. Morgan is much less concerned with filling her tag.    Unpunched tags drive me completely crazy! But it looks like we will have some in the Engel household this year. Sorry team! Good job to you guys who managed to get it done and my apologies that we couldn't hold up our end of the bargain. Well... Ryan did, but Morgan and I couldn't do it this year. Next time!
    • The lake was low when we fished it but they only closed the dam days before ,, should be able to get under the bridge to get to Little yellow ,,, I have not heard that the crappie action was going well tho ,,, Did catch some decent pike  but no walleyes 
    • How high is the water, wondering if we can get into little yellow this memorial weekend or not.  How was fishing?    
    • Here are a couple pictures from our WI season. We were able to take 5 birds. Two of us had two tags and one buddy just had one tag. Really think the predators in the area have these birds learning to be silent. They do not gobble much and if they do it’s mainly morning before fly down 2 or 3 times at the most. Over that last 5 years it’s been like this the first 10 years gobbling was heard through the day but now you don’t hear that gobbling in the distance or to calls very often. Still come to calls but almost ways silent now which is fine they still come in.   Finally all done and food plots are almost finished love the spring time.
