Making of Russia's ORSIS T-5000 Precision Rifle

Making of Russia's ORSIS T-5000 Precision Rifle

Marco Vorobiev was a member of the elite Soviet Spetsnaz in Afghanistan in the 1980s. He's a U.S. citizen now and conducts training courses that draw on his special forces training. He'll have a new installment every Wednesday.

I have written about the introduction of Russia's new precision rifle the ORSIS T-5000 at the International Arms and Munitions Salon in the Ural region city of Nizhniy Tagil, Russia.

The following is a follow-up to my earlier post. This is sort of a photo essay on the birth of new and exciting product.

The Russian state company "Promtechnologii" produces the T-5000 in a relatively new manufacturing plant. It is small but very modern and equipped with state-of-the-art CNC mills and machines. Its stated capacity is roughly 5,000 rifles annually with additional expansion capabilities depending on order volume. Though currently there are no government orders for the new T-5000 rifle, the company's management is hopeful that this may change in the future pending field testing.


Meanwhile, the company plans to start production of SVD style semiautomatic sniper rifle next year. There is even talk of possible handgun production.
