Rosoboronexport, part of Russia’s Rostec State Corporation, has concluded a contract, worth over 100 million rubles ($1.5 million), to supply a foreign customer with a batch of ORSIS T-5000 sniper rifles.
“Since 2017, when Rosoboronexport was granted the right to supply civilian and service weapons abroad, the company has considered requests for them from foreign customers worth over $150 million. Several contracts have already been completed, including that for ORSIS T-5000 rifles, and we see great interest in them from the army, police and special forces units of our partners. Today we are negotiating and participating in tenders for the supply of these weapons to a number of countries,” said Igor Sevastyanov, Deputy Director General of Rosoboronexport.
The ORSIS T-5000 is a Russian bolt-action sniper rifle developed and manufactured by Moscow-based company Promtechnologia, which trades under the name ORSIS.
It was the first product developed by ORSIS and is produced in its 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.
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.
T-5000 is manufactured in the following calibers:
• 308 Win. (7.62×51 mm), effective range up to 800 m
• 300 Win. Mag. (7.62×67 mm), effective range up to 1000 m
