    All were recalled for being such a POS. Remington is supposed to be releasing a second generation model, but it still has problems. Way too many good auto's there to put up with junk.

    Friend bought one through our shop and loves it. I shot it and it functioned perfectly with trap loads. Very nice woodwork, fit and finish. It was one of the new ones. No problems yet.

    How does the bottom load work out when used for trap?

    Gun-Tests report:

    "REMINGTON 105CTi II

    Time can be a very harsh judge of a newly introduced shotgun. Remington’s 105 has an 'interesting' history, to put it mildly. Apparently intended to be introduced in 2005, it was delayed until 2007.... So it was with the 2007 105CTi, a model that quickly gained a reputation, not at all a favorable one. Originally announced as a $1200 retail product, its price ballooned to $1500 in short order. For 2009, the revamped 105 "II" retails for $1559....

    The rework of the 105 II is substantial. According to Remington, we have trigger-plate changes, action-sleeve changes, action sleeve–seal changes, and bolt-head changes. On top of that, we have barrel-assembly modifications, including gas-cylinder changes, carrier, and carrier-buffer changes. Most of these parts have received nickel plating and Teflon coating.....

    For maximum reliability, 200 shots with the factory-applied break-in lube are suggested.... The manual tells you to clean after every use. That means yanking the trigger group (needed to remove the breechblock), and disassembly of the complete bolt assembly. This is covered in the manual in over 70 documented steps to disassemble, clean, and reassemble the 105CTi II over five pages of text and illustrations...

    The 105’s narrow range of shell function is adequate for most hunting purposes, but 1-ounce loads long handled by the Browning Gold, Beretta 390/3901/391 and a couple of others seem out of the 105’s design parameters.... There are further design flaws, we believe. For example, if you drop a shell into the bottom of the receiver, it jams and will not enter the magazine. The magazine is offset from the bottom of the breechblock enough so interference of the hull with the top of the magazine tube is a virtual certainty....

    Right after our jams, we immediately contacted three principal officials at Remington, asking for an explanation of or solution to the malfunctions. We sent pictures that showed what the gun was doing. That was more than two months ago. Eventually, we received an e-mail from Remington stating, 'Sorry to hear about these issues… will follow up with you ASAP on how we correct the situation.' We are still waiting for that follow-up."

    The only one I have seen at the range was pure crap. There are many many other makes of autoloaders that outperform this contraption, the old M1100 being one of them.

    This is truly a classic example of why Remington can not/will not complete. A true disapointment. I was hoping that this would actually be a great design that they could develope into and merge with the target market. Once again, the big "R" has let me down. Have you seen that plastic piece of crap pump called the 887? It looks as if they hired some of Mattel's finest engineers to help design that remarkable tool.
