    Hello all! A new guy here, new to forum and trapshooting. I was looking for a shotgun that was inexpensive to purchase so I could give trapshooting a try. A freind took me to a outing that they were shooting at and i had a great time shooting. With that said I located a Weatherby Orion nearby that is in very good condition for $500. I was wondering how you can tell the year of the gun thru the serial Number. It starts with an EN and was made in Japan on the barrel. Thank you for any help.

    For your info I bought an Orion five years ago that was about 95% and paid 750 and considered it a deal. Go for it for that price. Dan

    I bought one of these about 3 years ago. If it's the same as mine, it's the older Orion with the Ivory colored diamond inlaid in the rosewood grip cap I gave $850 for it and wouldn"t take that for it now. "I shoot doubles (poorly most of the time) with it. It's a good gun that I've had no problems with. J.W.
