Ever since Orvis began selling guns in the early 1970’s, when we introduced the Orvis Wingshooting Schools, we’ve offered custom-fitted shotguns along with our completely handmade side-by-side shotguns. The custom-fitted shotgun program, unique to Orvis, provides the shooter a gun built to the shooter’s individual measurements. These measurements are taken by our skilled gun-fitters to insure your gun fits your specific build perfectly and, most importantly, shoots where you point.
While the custom programs remain the core of our gun business, we have expanded our shotgun offerings to encompass the Orvis Field Grade shotgun, available in over-and-under and side-by-side models in all gauges except 16; Caesar Guerini guns of the highest quality and beauty for production guns, viewable at our Flagship store in Manchester, Vermont or at our shooting grounds at Sandanona in Millbrook, New York; and our pre-owned English-made side-by-side guns of outstanding value, fully inspected by the Orvis in house gunsmith with 30+ years of experience.
We’ve been busy at the Orvis Gun Room expanding our assortment to insure that we have an assortment of guns whether you are a seasoned or novice clays or wingshooter. Check out the Orvis web site, visit one of our two locations, call (802) 362-2589 or email me, John Rano, Orvis Gun Room Manager, at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll help you find the shotgun just right for you.
