In today's long gun market, the bolt-action shooting purist can select from a bevy of options in 7.62x51mm NATO, .300 Winchester Magnum and .338 Lapua Magnum. One such product available to the discerning buyer is the ORSIS T-5000, a manually-actuated bolt-action weapon designed for the tactical sniping role. It currently (2018) claims users in China, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, Syria and Russia at the military, special forces and special police levels. It is used by the special forces outfit SPETSNAZ of Russia - which provides a high endorsement for the line.

The product was introduced by ORSIS, founded in 2011, during 2011 and is currently being produced at the company facility in Moscow.

The T-5000 is chambered in the usual flavors (as well as .408 Cheytac) and feeds from a 5- or 10-round detachable box magazine (depending on chambering). The arrangement of the gun is highly conventional with the receiver being home to the action, ergonomic pistol grip / trigger unit and magazine feed / well. Over the top of the receiver is a section of Picatinny rail for mounting various optics fits. Over the right side of the receiver can be found the bolt action handle as well as the ejection port those these qualities can be flipped to favor left-handed shooters. The forend is ribbed and the barrel sits exposed most of its length. At the barrel's midway point is affixed a collapsible bipod and another short section of rail for additional accessories. The fluted, stainless steel barrel assembly, of extremely tight factory tolerances, is capped by a slotted three-chamber muzzle brake - said to reduce felt recoil by as much as 50% compared to competing designs. At the rear of the receiver is a skeletal shoulder stock constructed of duralumin allow (D16T) with shoulder pad and cheekpiece - both adjustable.

Depending on chambering selected, the barrel length ranges from 660.4mm (.308 Winchester) to 698.5mm (.338 Lapua Magnum). Weight is 14.3lb with an overall length near 46.5 inches.

The "Hunter" and "Varmint" models offer adjustments to the trigger load. Other variants of the family line include the "Alpine" (big game hunting), "Benchrest" (competition shooter), "F-Class" (competition shooter) and "Varmint M" (competition shooting/hunting). A modernized variant of the T-5000 is recognized as the "T-5000M".

The T-5000 has been used in the combat environments of Iraq and Syria to date.
