Does anyone have any experience w/that new rem auto with the carbon receiver and bottom eject. I like the looks and concept but if it's anything like an 1100, ( which I place just above a Lorcin pistol in the reliability dept) I don't want any part of it.

There have been some discussions on it. Seems like the jury is still out.

Here's another thread on the subject. IMO, the jury has delivered a verdict on this gun and it's thumbs down.

gee, my 28 gauge 1100 works very well...my only complaint is the ab workout picking up empties

Well, I have five 1100s and nary a problem. So, I must just be real lucky, huh?

Sounds like another instance of "operator error".

Buy a Benelli Super Black Eagle II . Thats what I did . You can shoot anything though the Benelli with out a problem . Unlike the 1100 .

The benchmark for gas guns is the Beretta 391/390 series with a close second place to the Browning Gold/Winchester SX.

Current production 1100s are a pale imitation of the guns they once were. I had an action bar failure on a 28 gauge 1100 and it was immediate obvious the metal used was cheap sintered steel that didn't stand up under pressure. I use that 1100 for introducing young or small statured shooters and never take it to the range without an assortment of spare parts. I've needed them often.

Because I'm a shotgun nut I keep track of what friends and acquaintances are shooting. I can name five people with recently acquired 1100's that have had problems with them from recurrent rust to a 28 gauge owner that had his gun rebuilt twice in less than 5 thousand rounds.

Meanwhile, the two Remington CTi105s I've shot were disgraceful from a manfacturing/quality control standpoint. One of these guns went back to the factory approved repair stations three times before it was right.

The CTi is a fascinating design. Maybe Remington should do what they did with the Model 32 and sell the design to someone who knows how to build a proper shotgun.

I own four 1100s now. I must be lucky, because all of mine function flawlessly. Granted, three of the four are vintage (60's and 70's) and the fourth is a brand new "Police" model.

I will get a CTi eventually, but I'll let them work the kinks out before I plop down that kind of cash.

Might be a nice gun, but it costs way more than I wanna give for a shotgun. The Spartan 453 is more in my budget. LOL! I have an old Winchester 1400 and it works just fine. For that kind of money, I'll get a nice O/U from Browning or Beretta or something.

Have not tried the 105, but both my 1100's work just fine. Lucky, I guess? ;)

Nailed it.
