Weatherby Orion over/under NWTF 12 g

Won this gun at the local NWTF banquet...is a beauty even though I don't know much about it. Has gold inlay of a deer, turkey and I believe quail.

Here's some general info on the Orion:

Folks seem to be asking around $1K for them on the online auction houses.

Re: Weatherby Orion over/under NWTF 12 g

The Orion's used to be made for Weatherby (and before that for Ithaca) by SKB in Japan and were/are great shotguns. I've shot the Ithaca/SKB's for about 40 years. The newer ones imported by Wby after SKB closed are made in Turkey and I've not shot those. I think you have a darn nice gun though.

The older I get, the stronger gravity becomes.
