I liked it very light and the recoil was not much at all. Ws a little weird to load but I am sure you would get used to it pretty quickly.

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.

Good gun with light recoil,you need a litle training to learn load and unload the gun.I shoot last month my first boar[95 kilos].I believe the cti is a fieldgun,can shoot magnumloads without problems.With light loads,you maybe have problems.

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.
I was looking for more than that.

Now, granted, that's not a list of every thread dealing with the 105CTi, but it's a pretty fair sampling. I hope this satisfies your "I was looking for more than that" complaint.

I have a friend who just couldn't take another breath without owning one. He finaly got it and shot 2 rounds of trap with it. Next day he traded it to a guy for a used Model 12 Winchester. That told me quite a bit about them!

Some folks don't like Model 12s either.

It's not like he doesn't have other autos to compare it with. I couldn't begin to recall how many 1100s, 1187s, 11-58, 48, 11, SX-1, SX-2 Model 50 and 59s, Gold and A-5s he has. I'm sure I missed several others too. I don't know exactly what he didn't like about it, he won't say, but it indeed is a rare occasion that he ever trades or sells a gun, any gun. This one only lasted 2 days and 2 boxes of shells. Something musta bit him in the butt!

And people rail on me for getting rid of a SPR310s after 2 weeks. :roll:
It sure would be interesting as to why he let her go that quick. I only handled one and never had the pleasure on really trying one out. It to me handles really well, but that is all I got on one.

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.

The early ones were total crap. The newer ones work but, I am not sure how reliable they are yet. I have spoken to a local range owner and, he just wouldn't touch them for a couple years yet and, he sells them.

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.

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.

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.

I think if someone offered me a mod 12 in great condition I would take it for almost any gun that was in the price range of the cti 105 because the model 12 in my mind is the greatest pump ever built. That being said I would love to buy a 105.

I thought you shot the 105 with you personal trap loads and found it to be a soft shooter.
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.

Busted. Yeah looking back at what I wrote looks like I wanted to win the argument with you I hedged the truth. NO I have not shot the 105 myself, but for the record there is no possible way it could remotely be as bad a the UL. With or without your magical shims in terms or recoil. I find it flattering that you must feel the same way about me as do I you. Score one for Worc and Lariat 0

Mr Power;

Trap has nothing whatever to do with why he did or did not like the gun. He could have been shooting whatever, and shoot whatever he does. And lots of it! Just so happened the day he got it the trap range was the closest place to home.. It isn't like he doesn't know what a Trap gun is, I suspect he has at least 2 dozen or more. Even a few collectors, single shot high grade Ithicas and L.Cs, Diamond grade 101s, several of both single and O/Us, 1/2 dozen or so Model 12 Trap, 870s, 1100s, SX-1s. I could go on and on. The fact that the 105 may or may not be a Trap gun has noting whatever to do with the fact that he says; "I just didn't like the @#$%^ thing! Worst piece of @#$%^&* I've ever shot! Glad to be rid of it!"

Trap gun or not. :roll:

He would hardly admit he even had one. He had been talking about getting one for a while, ever since he first saw a picture of it in some rag. It was a mutual friend who was shooting with him that day that told me about it and then I "confronted" him about it. That's when the expletives arrived, and he rarely talks that way!
