Orion® I

Orion® I


* Required Fields



I am back by popular demand, and more handsome, balanced and durable as ever. The folks at Weatherby subjected me to rigorous testing to ensure my smooth, reliable performance. In their words, they built me to inspire the dreams of hunters and shooters everywhere. I know they succeeded, because Gun Dog Magazine recently agreed, saying: “A great gun for flushing pheasants, grouse and Huns because it seems to jump to the shoulder and allows for quick, consistent shots.” Awww shucks, I’m blushing.

  1. Just purchased 2018

    By Aaron June 03, 2018

    Picked up this over and under and went out put 100 shells though it. Performed excellently good value and beautiful. Only wish it had come with a case. However SKB case fits well.

  2. Tremendous Value

    By Jimnquincy May 12, 2018

    I bought the Orion to take on a bird hunting safari to South Africa. I found the Orion fit and finish to be equal to if not better than its compeitors in $2000 range. The Orion performed flawlessly. For the money, there is not a better gun made. Buy it!

  3. Best gun for the money

    By HunterB April 29, 2018

    Finally got to shoot a round of Clay's with The Orion; throws good, feels great, looks even better. Best $1,000 market gun out right now. I can say the front bead is too small, besides that I'd buy again. Will hopefully have for a lifetime.

  4. All Great

  5. Fantastic

    By Andy December 22, 2017

    I own this shotgun at a pig roast about 15 years ago. I've put hundreds of rounds through this awesome gun. It's so smooth and well made. Good job Weatherby!
