The presentation brought together more than 50 trainers from all regions of Russia. ORSIS BIATHLON biathlon rifles were shown to participants in two versions: with stocks made of aluminum alloy and laminate (special armory plywood).
The trainers expressed great interest in the novelties, asked questions related to the design features of the models and shooting in the cold. The presented samples successfully passed a series of tests, including shooting at -13 ° C. The results of the shooting convinced the participants in the accuracy of the ORSIS trunks both at positive and at negative temperatures. Of the advantages of the gathering, they noted, among other things, a simple procedure for replacing the barrel and a convenient recharging scheme.
The presented aluminum alloy bed has the greatest number of adjustments to adapt its geometry to the anthropometric data of the athlete. The weight of the box with the rifle is as close as possible to the minimum allowable threshold IBU (3,5 kg).
At the end of the presentation, preliminary prices for future rifle samples in various versions were announced. More than competitive prices were approved and aroused even more interest among participants.
The project to create a new biathlon rifle began in the 2011 year and is still ongoing. In the future, the modification of the rifle ORSIS BIATHLON will be adapted for hunters. In this design, it will be different in the lodge, mounting the telescopic sight on the Picatinny rail (Weaver), as well as on the hunting trunk will be installed external sights (front and rear sights), more massive trunk.
