The McMillan ALIAS® CS5 is designed for stealth and concealment in urban settings.
The bolt action CS5 is specifically designed as a compact and concealable precision tactical rifle. It is sold in suppressed configuration for military and law enforcement applications, but can be purchased by civilians in accordance with NFA rules.

Breaks down into a common backpack.
With the buttstock and suppressor detached, the CS5 is only 23.5″ in overall length. It stuffs neatly into backpacks and other inconspicuous carriers, yet it delivers the stopping authority of a .308 projectile.

Sub-MOA accuracy, subsonic or full power.
Using McMillan’s match-grade 200 grain subsonic .308 Winchester ammunition, the CS5 will deliver 0.5 MOA performance or better in urban settings. With full power match grade ammunition, the CS5 will also deliver 0.5 MOA performance or better at typical 7.62 NATO distances. Hence, it is a dual purpose firearm serving subsonic as well as traditional sniper rifle roles.

Designed with extensive input from elite military teams.
The infinitely adjustable buttstock will fit any operator, regardless of height, build, bulk of clothing, or shooting position. A tactile safety button can be operated without moving your trigger finger. Index marks allow repeatable stock adjustments and an Anschütz® match trigger adjusts for weight and length of pull.

The ALIAS CS5 is currently in use by elite law enforcement and military tactical units and has received excellent feedback by operators. Call for details.

Applicable NFA rules apply regarding SBR and suppressor.
