The Orsis T-5000 (Russian: ОРСИС Т-5000) is a Russian bolt-action sniper rifle. It was the first product developed by ORSIS, and is produced in their Moscow factory. The rifle was introduced in 2011 at the international exhibition of Russian weapons in Nizhny Tagil, and is entirely original, using no third-party components. According to General Director of the Institute for Precision Machine Engineering TsNIITochMash, Dmitry Semiozerov: "As of 2017, the newest sniper complex T-5000 "Precision" was adopted by the FSB, the FSO, and Rosgvardiya".[2][3]

Design[edit]

In its standard configuration the T-5000 is equipped with a 660 mm fluted, stainless steel barrel (698 mm when chambered in .338 Lapua Magnum), cut to a twist rate between 1-in-10 and 1-in-12 depending on customer requirements.

The stainless steel stock adopts a highly "skeletal" design, with highly adjustable butt and cheekpiece components mounted on a folding stock that reduces the transport length of the T-5000 by around 250 mm. The trigger is adjustable from 500 g in its Varmint configuration, to over 1500 g depending on application, and a Picatinny rail is provided for the attachment of optics.

Variants[edit]

A modernized variant of the rifle T-5000M is planned to increase its firing range up to 2,000 m (2,187 yd).[4]

The Federal Security Service, the Federal Protective Service and the National Guard in 2017 adopted a next-gen T-5000 sniper rifle named 'Tochnost' (lit. "precision") sniper rifle chambered in 7.62×51mm NATO and .338 Lapua Magnum (8.6×70mm).[5][6]

A next-gen T-5000 'Tochnost' sniper rifle chambered in .375 CheyTac (9.5×77mm) and made for rough military conditions was tested in the Moscow Region. Its range is over 2,000 m (2,187 yd). The tests were successfully completed in 2019.[7]
