This is probably old news for many on SW but it wasn't for me.

If you use an Orvis CC that you get online approval for; you can get 20% off on their firearms. This would make their very elegant Orvis FABARM Elos D2 priced at $2,159 VS the normal $2,699. It seems to me it comes with everything needed plus Orvis's unique 100% satisfaction guaranteed.

That seems to me to be a really great buy on a very capable and handsome gun that Orvis has had dolled up with gold and better grade of wood it seems. Good to know, just before Christmas. HO, HO, HO

Here are the details on the D2.

Gauges: 12, 20, 28
Barrel length: 28"
Average weight: 6 1/2-7 1/2 lbs
Receiver finish: Nickel plated forged steel
Receiver design: Orvis Logo with gold birds
Stock finish: Hand rubbed oil finish walnut
Standard length of pull: 14 1/2"
Standard drop @ comb: 1 1/2"
Standard drop @ heel: 2 1/4"
Standard cast: 1/8" off
Recoil pad: Rubber pad
Center rib: Ventilated
Chokes: Five flush, nickel plated FABARM Hyperbolic chokes
Sight: Brass bead
Safety: Automatic
Case: Elos D2 Integrale Hard Case

I have zero vested interest in Orvis or FABARM.

Not according to Orvis. CC offer excluded guns.

See below chat from Orvis customer service. It says that it DOES apply so there is some confusion and that is why I asked for a copy of the chat with Orvis customer service. On another thread, Randy said he called and said it does NOT apply so I really don't know at this stage and was only trying to help out if it is possible to get the savings via CC online approval.

I asked them the same question and I got the same response as you did that you can get the 20% but it is only if you are opening one of their credit cards for the first time and approved, unfortunately I already have one. I emailed the gun room to confirm the discount, if so I will try to open one up in my wife's name, thats a great savings, and a great looking gun.

I just asked...
[Doug] When you apply for the Orvis Rewards Visa and are instantly approved you do qualify for a one time 20% discount. This discount cannot be used on shotguns.

Anyone can call Greg Carpiniello, the gun room manager, directly-- it does not apply to firearms.

Strange because I am sure their margins are 35% or greater on these.

I can confirm after emailing the gun room that the discount does not apply to the shotguns. They need to let customer service know this because they will say that guns are not exempt.

Too bad.

I am curious though as I attended one of their fly fishing schools and at the end of the 2 day course we were able to get 20% off of anything we wanted from their website, this included $800+ rods, reels, clothing etc.

I don't know if they are still doing this or if you could use it towards a gun but you could try I guess. You will ultimately pay the same price or more but you will get a class out of it, fishing or shooting.

On the Fabarm website they have a calendar of events where you can shoot these guns without buying. There are a few at orvis facilities. Does anyone know if they offer the orvis version of the elos D2 and if they offer any discounts on demo guns?

Only Orvis sells Orvis exclusives. You'll have to call Greg at Orvis and let him know what you are looking for.
