I have one and it wont cycle anything but heavy loads. Even win "super speed" ammo won't do it. A good hefty 1-1/8oz load is the minimum to fully cycle this action and that seems like the problem your boss is experiencing, A short stroke.

hope this helps,

How heavy of loads is he shooting? My friend has a 105 and it won't cycle with light to medium loads. Sometimes it would do as you described or it wouldn't kick the hull out at all. But it worked just fine after he started shooting heavier loads through it. Hope this helps, Josh.

I shot the Rem reps gun a couple years ago and it worked even with 1100 fps 1 oz reloads. That gun had a lot of rounds through it.I expect a long break in is neccasary. Jeff

The original 105's had all sorts of nagging problems and even had a recall on them I believe.

They had a newer version at the shot show called a 105CTI II. They made some small changes to the gun and all the problems are supposed to be sorted out. Only time will tell.

Remington spent a lot of money on the original and it was a complete dud in the market place because of the issuees and lack of availability.

All Good,

The original 105 CTi's were known to have cycling problems. Remington quietly took them off the market and they have just released the 105 CTi II which is supposed to have all of the problems engineered out of it. I have read on some of the duck hunting forums that owners of 105 CTi's that wouldn't cycle had their guns bought back by Remington. Maybe your boss can send his back and get his money back, or at the very least, maybe get the new internals retro-fitted to the gun.

The link above is a quick write up on the new CTi.
