Orion® I

(54 customer reviews)



With gloss-finished metalwork and glossy Turkish walnut stock, the Orion I fits in just as well on the sporting clays course as it does in the field chasing birds. 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 28″ in 20 gauge, the Orion I has a vented top rib fit with a single brass bead and is shipped with a set of interchangeable chokes.

  • “A” grade walnut stock

    However, It does seem to be very tight and I have too almost struggle with opening and closing the breech dues to this situation. I am still working to get the correct lubrication to help with its operation.

    I’ve had my weatherby orion for about a year and it shoots very well in skeet. I love the gun because, the weight, the look, and the overall performance. I think it is worth it because it keeps up with my dads browning citori for half of the price.

    very well made and nice looking shotgun. good weight at seven pounds. tang safety could be a little smoother and not slide laterally so easily. can get hung up in the middle. I have had this issue with a browning as well.

    My significant other bought me this shotgun and I absolutely love it! It shoots naturally and looks killer! This is a great shotgun ..and a for the price, an amazing deal! I’d recommend this shotgun to anyone looking for affordable quality. Performance would have been rated 5 out of 5 is I could have gotten a more complete choke set from Weatherby (as opposed to 3rd party). Regardless, if you can only have one over and under shotgun, this is the one you want!

    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.

    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.

    Very happy about this gun. We bought it to have an extra field gun for friends and guest to hunt with. Carries well at 7lbs and folds birds like a champ. Would highly recommend this O/U
