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.
