The trigger was the best I’ve ever tried—the trigger pull was short and crisp, breaking cleanly at 2.2 pounds. Operating the bolt was smooth and fast. I shot the rifle in five-round strings and my best groups measured a tad less than 1 inch across. This translates to slightly less than 1-MOA accuracy, and this was my first ever attempt at shooting a real precision rifle (my previous “sniper rifle” experience was limited mostly to the Russian Army-issued 7.62mm Dragunov SVD semi-automatic rifle). With more experienced shooters firing this rifle, 0.5-MOA or better accuracy is the norm, even at extended ranges.
Read on to find out about some of its best features.
1. Inherent Accuracy: With proper ammunition, 0.5 MOA is a norm, and even 0.3 MOA can be routinely achieved with some effort.
2. Ruggedness & Reliability: The ORSIS T-5000 passed extremely demanding Russian Army small arms tests with very promising results.
3. Precision Barrels: ORSIS makes stainless steel barrels that can be ordered from the factory in any conceivable chambering, profile, rifling and twist rate.
4. Threaded Muzzle: This can accept various muzzle devices, including muzzle brakes, flash suppressors and sound suppressors.
5. Rigid Stock: The sturdy aluminum alloy stock features steel bedding inserts to hold the action in place.
