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.

Outstanding quality great price
After paper tuning and stock adjustment this gun fits and shoots amazing love it. It has features of guns twice the price.
very well buily. A solid shotgun.
To be honest, this gun was an impulse buy. I have shot trap for 5 years with a single barrel from the 70's and love the gun. In the last two years I started getting in to get into sporting clays and trap doubles with my dad and brother and always shot a pump. They always tried to get me to buy either a semi-auto or an O/U. I was hesitant because of the cost of getting a sporting gun that fit and shot great. I've shot Benelli's, Citori's, Ithaca's, but I could never afford a gun that nice. Well until that is, I stopped in at my local gun shop to pick up a choke for my buddy and the salesman asked me if I was looking for anything else. I opened my mouth and said I was in the market for an O/U. He handed me the Orion, I closed it and it found it's place on my shoulder. I knew before I even set it down that I was walking out with it in my possession. Around a thousand rounds later, I've tacked 6 birds on to my doubles average, my sporting clays, I'm finally in the 30's as for trap... I'm sticking with my single barrel for now.
This has to be the best impulse buy I've ever made. The Prince of Wales stock fits my frame perfectly and the thing shoots so flat I had to change my shooting style. This is the best shotgun I own.
A good value
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.
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.
