1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    There should not be any cast on/off on this gun unless the stock was bent for the shooter.
    Most 101's I have seen and shot have a neutral cast from factory.
    I would say this is late 70's model without choke tubes.
    I have and shoot the pigeon grade XTR Model 101 with tubes and full receiver engraved on the bottom. The gun I shoot is from the mid 80's

    Have about three Model 101 shotguns from that era.

    Like 'em a lot.

    .


    One 101 is a Diamond Grade and it has a lot of cast suitable for a left-hander (which I am).

    The original purchaser custom ordered it with cast for a right-hander, but the custom order got misunderstood somehow.

    So I got a bargain from the original buyer who did not discover the error for quite some time.

    All he knew was that he couldn't hit anything with it.

    .

    Maybe because I am a lefty, but maybe due to other things I don't understand...

    I am pretty sensitive to cast.

    Have found a number of used guns with more cast than one would expect.

    I would have guessed that all production guns are cast neutral, but they're not.

    Found a Beretta side-by-side with a tremendous amount of cast in it. Likewise a Winchester Model 21 and a Fausti.

    But fortunately have found someone who can correct them for me -- Michael Orlen in Amherst, Massachusetts.

    How much longer should we let it sit here before one of us buys it ?
