Video—ARTV: Weatherby Orion Shotgun Review

posted on June 28, 2018
Weatherby's Orion shotgun is a Turkish-made, entry-level, over/under that is loaded with features at an affordable price. The shotgun includes a mechanical trigger, so regardless of whether the first barrel fires, the second one will. It also features a manual safety, which requires the shooter to apply the safety by sliding it back into the "on-safe" position each time the gun is fired; and an automatic ejector, which aids in easy removal of the shells. But even though its outward appearance is less finished than the company's other models, it comes decked out in a sleek walnut stock and boasts a shallow receiver.

Check out this 
“Rifleman Review” video from a recent episode of American Rifleman TV, in which Mark Keefe heads to the range with the Weatherby Orion shotgun.
