I was hunting with this guy when a pheasant exploded from right under his boot. Man, it just about turned him inside out. But I stayed cool as a cucumber, because I’m the Orion I Sporting shotgun and I have a job to do – which is to shoulder faster than a teal on a tailwind, point and swing with syrupy balanced smoothness, and inspire the perfect lead with my fiber-optic bead. Oh, and to look good doing it with A-Grade walnut and Weatherby’s timeless craftsmanship.

  1. A good value

    By MickyB June 07, 2018

    I purchased my Orion a bit capriciously; I thought if felt good, it looked great, and the salesman convinced me that the Turkish managers at the new plant were aware of the reputation for modest quality of regional manufacturers and wanted to build a good o/u shotgun along with a better reputation.

    I also have a Citori that has worked flawlessly for many thousands of rounds and have no intention to replace it; well, perhaps a good Red Label. My view has always been that a good quality o/u shotgun for less than $3K would be made in Japan. However, I have now shot more than 2000 rounds through my Orion without any issues and my belief is changing; I like the way it is balanced, I enjoy shooting it, and it is still tight. I think the Orion is a very good value.

  2. Great shotgun!

    By Maverick June 02, 2018

    This is one great shotgun! This o/u can't be beat for the money. It has many features that guns twice the price have. I am very happy with this gun.

    A truly beautiful gun that I will eventually hand down to my child when I am too old to shoot.
