Hasn't gotten cold yet?

I'm thinking I might design a portable 3000 BTU gas pack heating unit for a duck blind to market to 105CTI owners. Reckon there are enough of them out there for me to be profitable? :wink: :biggrin:

Was surprized to see this thread pop up. Mine is running just fine with the loads I like. It seems as though the more you shoot it the better it gets. I shoot a lot of 1 1/8 and 1 1/4 lead loads. The only Winchesters I shoot are AA's. As far as steel I stick with 1 1/4 Remington and Federals, with some Kents thrown in once in a while. In my opinion the most important thing is keeping the tube clean. I clean the tube,port and rings and bore about every 2 to 3 hundred rounds depending on how they look some times just the tube. I still look for the gun to be reintroduced in a few years. You see less and less of them on the market and the price seems to have crept up somewhat.

I added to my Remington Collection. I finally convinced by lovely wife let me get a Versamax in the Waterfowl Edition. I have had it about 5 weeks and have yet to pull the trigger on it.

I now have:
2 Twelve gauge Wingmasters
1 Twenty gauge Wingmaster
1 105 cti ll
1 Twelve gauge 1100 G3
1 Versamax in the Waterfowl Edition.

Any updates that you want to share? My CTI II's had another great season! My wife FINALLY went pheasant hunting with me with her CTI II, and guess what? She shot three roosters this season! A FIRST for her! She is all excited about pheasant hunting now with her CTI II. She loves that gun! :)

Have found if you keep the magazine tube clean its as reliable as any semi auto out there. Used mine for 98% of my hunting this year. Still look for it to be introduced as a skeet/clays gun after the smoke clears in 2 3/4' only.

Have you noticed the price has gone up some,while the availability has gone down. Mine is still running great. You just have to keep the magazine tube clean,the temp. doesn't matter. It's a not for sale gun. I've yet to let someone shoot it that doesn't think it a great gun.

I love my CTi II,(3rd year of shooting), shoots really really well, excellent dove gun. Just keep it clean! I have never seen another hunter carrying one, and wonder how many were actually made and sold. Is there any way to find that out?

It really is not a bad gun. I love the bottom ejection on it. I wish they would have kept making them. I do not have a price on mine. I plan on using it this week.

Hey 105 cti owners! :smile:

I am still doing well with my 105 cti 2! Good to see you guys still got them. Gives me a little trouble every now and again, but it fits me so well that I cannot part with it.

I had a couple of cycling issues recently. I will take the magazine tube cleaning recommendation to heart, and see what that does. :thumbsup: Does this seem to resolve the cold weather cycling issues???

Question for you all. I was out hunting the other day when my metal emblem "R" logo on the stock fell off! Any recommendation on the best way to reattach it? Glue type etc? Anybody else have this problem? Looks like it was glued in place before from the factory.

Hi Norcal!
The "R" fell off? Beware, I had the same problem. Used Loctite epoxy to glue it back on, lasted two years, ended up losing the "R", still trying to replace that part. Body shop maybe? They might have a good glue to hold it on. Just don't lose it like I did.

Fine steel wool and CLP then wipe dry. Works wonders warm or cold.

Augusta,
Yes that metal "R" fell off. I was shooting at a jumping triple of mallards. After I got done shooting I just happened to look down and saw that it was on the ground. I will see what I can find for a good adhesive.

Ohio Mike, I will try your exterior cleaning of the magazine tube method. Not sure how or why that method would resolved the cold weather issues.... I actually clean already clean it really well with CLP as it is, but I will try a little bit of steel wool as well. Can't hurt at this point.

If a dirty magazine tube exterior seems to be the core of the cycling issue, I wonder if an upgraded spring with more "power" would make a difference?

Ohio, what type of "fine" steel wool are you using to clean the interior of our magazine? I want to try that method? Thanks
