Design

The T-5000 is a bolt-action rifle with 2 lug bolt assembly on a glass bedded aluminum frame. Various types of heavy free floating barrels can be fitted. To suit its tactical role the T-5000 is fitted with an adjustable folding stock, rubber pistol grip and large multislotted muzzle brake. Normally the T-5000 is fitted with the DH 5-20×56 scope which is a quantum leap forward in Russian scope design. Often an adjustable bipod and forward accessory rail are fitted.

Firepower

The T-5000 comes in 7.62x51mm NATO and .338 Lapua Magnum versions. Magazine capacity ranges from 5 to 10 rounds. The effective range is quoted as 1.500 meters for the .338 Lapua model. With match ammunition consistent sub-MOA accuracy can be expected. The large muzzle brake is said to reduce felt recoil by 50 percent.
