Versatile and adaptable, the Orion Sporting is fit with a four-way adjustable comb that greatly assists in making the shotgun come to shoulder perfectly each and every time. The Sporting’s longer 30″ barrels make for a much more deliberate swing and are ported to help reduce recoil and aid in transitioning to a second clay target. The vented rib helps dissipate heat and optical distortion when shooting volume climbs, and a fiber optic bead glows brightly in the sunlight. Automatic ejectors kick spent hulls from the chambers, and the extended and knurled chokes are easily swapped depending on the target presentation. Built to crush clays, the Orion Sporting can be purchased in 12 or 20-gauge.

Built to run modern 2 ¾” and 3” magnum loads, the Element has front and rear QD sling studs to enable the quick addition of a sling. A light-gathering fiber optic front sight sits atop its serrated and ventilated rib and rubberized grip panels lend traction in wet conditions.

He’s fanned out, backlit by the morning sun and glowing amber in the light. I’m ready to send a tightly-choked pattern of #4s with terminal accuracy. This is what I was made for. He just needs to take two – more – steps…
I remind you how special I am every time you chamber a shell. After all, my name is engraved right there next to the bolt release button. Whether the game is feathered or clay, it’s an honor to be in good hands.
With matte-finished metalwork and matching matte Turkish walnut stock, the Orion Matte Blue is right at home chasing birds, whether that’s chukar in the mountains or quail in the desert. Equipped with automatic ejectors that throw empty hulls clear of the chamber, the Orion is notable for its slim action that employs a set of sliding locking bars nestled in above those ejectors that result in less bulk than many similar over/unders. Fitted with 26″ or 28″ barrels in 12 gauge or 26″ in 20 gauge, the Orion Matte Blue has a vented top rib fit with a single brass bead and is shipped with a set of interchangeable chokes.
