1. We have added the ability for anyone to 'bump' threads that they have created. This is mainly useful in the classifieds area where posters constantly bump for sale threads to bring it to the top. This allows them the ability to do that without having to clutter the thread with extra 'TTT' and 'Bump' type posts. To bump it, go inside your thread and click on 'Thread Tools' at the top, then select 'bump'. You can bump only once per 24 hour period.

    For more detailed information please see this post: Thread Bump Functionality.

    I'm not sure Bulger, but you may find it has mechanical trigger's.

    Page nine of the owners manual in the link shows these as inertia triggers. I have always wanted one of these in a high grade 28 gauge. The action is basically an SKB if I am nit mistaken.

    The Orion was built by SKB, shipped to Weatherby in the white and then polished, blued and stocked by them.

    The Orion was a great pheasant gun in 20 ga; but they always seemed a bit clubby in 12 ga. However, most 12 ga o/u's feel that way to me...

    All Orion's had inertia triggers, except for the 28 ga model, which had mechanical triggers.

    Looks to be a good solid gun, a little fix up work will bring it back to life!

    When I was a kid in high school I won a Weatherby Regency in a raffle, damn that was a nice gun, too bad my wise a$$ed teen aged mouth over rode my brain and I ended up having to sell it to pay for a lawyer to get my a$$ out of a crack

    You too, Cat? Guess Rod Stewart's lyrics apply to both of us, eh?

    "I wish that I knew what I know now

    When I was younger.

    I wish that I knew what I know now

    When I was stronger."
