The Orsis T-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. As of 2017, the newest sniper complex T-5000 “Precision” was adopted by the FSB (the main successor agency to the Soviet Union’s KGB), the FSO ( the protection of several high-ranking state officials), and Rosgvardiya (independent military agency). the FSB, the FSO, and the National Guard in 2017 adopted a next-gen Orsis T-5000, and designated it as the Tochnost (“precision”) sniper rifle chambered in 7.62×51mm NATO and .338 Lapua Magnum (8.6×70mm).
