Orion over/under shotguns are returning to the Weatherby product line in 2015, and will be on display later this month at SHOT Show 2015.

The new over/under models will be available in 12-gauge, with a 26- or 28-inch barrel and a three-inch chamber. Each will weigh in at about seven pounds.

The Orions will feature a walnut stock with a high-gloss finish and a rounded Prince of Wales grip, featuring precision-cut checkering. A Pachmayr Decelerator pad is included to help reduce felt recoil. In addition, Orion shotguns have a traditional boxlock action with a dual conical pin locking mechanism. The forged steel receiver is shallower in depth and thinner in profile than traditional 12-gauge designs.

"Back by popular demand, our new Orion is a rock-solid, beautiful over/under shotgun that offers exceptional balance and effortless swing through," said Adam Weatherby, executive vice president/chief operating officer. "We subjected it to rigorous testing to ensure smooth, reliable performance. We also gave it the Weatherby touch to meet the expectations and inspire the dreams of hunters and shooters everywhere."

Each Orion over/under shotgun features Weatherby's Integral Multi-Choke System and comes with Improved Cylinder, Modified and Full choke tubes.
