SIG MPX: Video and Details

SIG MPX video

“The next generation of submachine gun is here,” states a SIG Sauer video demonstrating the all new SIG MPX.  The SIG MPX is a new submachine gun that the company is expected to show off at next week’s SHOT Show.

There are a number of features that really set this gun apart from others in this category.  First, according to the video, the SIG MPX is the world’s first submachine gun to work with a fully closed and locked rotating bolt system.  The gun uses the SIG Sauer short stroke gas piston system that the company has used on their other rifles.  There is a last round hold open.


Saiga-9 Carbine

This is the Vityaz-SN, the SMG on which the new Saiga-9 is modeled.

Russian arms manufacturer JSC Izhmash is gearing up to produce the Saiga-9 carbine, a civilian version of the Vityaz-SN submachine gun.  The new Saiga-9 will be chambered in 9mm (aka 9×19).

The new carbine was introduced at the 2012 Russian Hunting and Sporting Goods show in September.  Currently, I don’t have much information on the Saiga-9, other than it is the “civil equivalent” of the SMG.

Below is a video of the Vityaz-SN in action.  Expect that the Saiga-9 will look similar (with a longer barrel no doubt), but will lack the automatic fire.


KRISS Vector Video

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?
