Has anyone had the chance to shoot the 105 CTI yet? If so wha tdid you think. Pro's Con's???
You got me.... I scanned through the first three pages and did not see anything about a CTI except one post. He was having some issues with it cycling shells properly. Had it fixed and it is still having the same issues.MRPOWER said:If you head on down to the "I Love my Remington" forum here on SGW, you will find page after page after page of interesting reading about users' experiences with the 105CTi, positive and negative. Personally, if I wanted a field gun, I'd buy one, and if they made a much heavier version with an appropriate gas system in a clays gun, I'd strongly consider buying one.
And people rail on me for getting rid of a SPR310s after 2 weeks. :roll:Burnt Powder said:This one only lasted 2 days and 2 boxes of shells. Something musta bit him in the butt!
The story I thought was, "he shot 2 rounds of trap with it". Nowhere did it say he bought it specifically for trap. How many times do we all buy a firearm and take it range? A good place just to try it out. I'm pretty sure that is what happened in this case.MRPOWER said:BP, your buddy's experience, while indicative of something, may not be indicative of the gun's suitability for trap. After all, that is explicitly not what the gun was designed for. I'd like to see them do a higher-rib, heavier weight clays version. Don't know that that will happen, but I'd like to see it.
Humm ok. It might not have been hunting season. Instead of trap he maybe should've shot sporting then? That probably takes a specal gun to or does it? My point is your going to have an idea just by some trigger time if the gun is more or less something you are going to want to explore further. Even without putting it into a more real world situtation it was intended for.MRPOWER said:Yes, yes, yes. But my point remains. And that is that subjecting a firearm to a use for which it was not designed may not be the best or most effective way to evaluate its performance. That is all.
No not me. The 105 is one I haven't had the oppertunity to try. I shot the Benelli Ultra Lite with some of my personal loads and found it to be a hidious on recoil though. Maybe that is what your thinking about? As far,as the 105 goes I can only remark on what I've been told from trusted friends that have shot it. They say it is pretty soft. Maybe even softer than an 1100? That I like to see for myself, but everyone has claimed it to be soft so I guess there must be truth to it.Worc said:
