The folks from Laura Burgess Marketing put up a video of the Vector line of firearms from KRISS USA. Evan McNamara introduces the viewers to the Vector line of guns including the carbine, SMG, SBR and pistol models. All of the KRISS Vector firearms are chambered in .45 ACP and use the standard Glock 21 magazine. KRISS also makes a magazine extension, taking the Glock mag to 30 rounds.
The carbine is a civillian legal, semi-auto version of the gun with a 16″ barrel. The SBR, or short barrel rifle, is similar to the carbine, but has a 5.5″ barrel. The short barrel requires a Federal tax stamp, which is obtainable by all citizens – it just takes time, money and is a hassle. But hey, that pretty much sums up dealing with any government agency, doesn’t it?
The handgun is essentially the Vector SBR without a stock. It is manufactured as a pistol, so it does not require any special stamps and is completely civilian legal. Throw a sling on it and you can handle this a little better than a traditional looking handgun and not quite as good as a rifle or carbine with a shoulder stock.
The SMG is for government sales only. It is unfortunate that most people will never get to shoot one, as these things are extremely fun to shoot. With burst fire, the shooter can really see how well the Vector recoil reduction system works. Unfortunately, the government has determined that law abiding citizens are not to be trusted with such a gun.
The folks here at GunsHolstersAndGear.com got to shoot the KRISS SMG at the 2010 SHOT Show. Check out the video and see what I mean about the lack of recoil. The gun is very easy to shoot and the recoil reduction system is no joke or gimmick.
