KRISS USA, Inc. is an American arms manufacturer that is a part of the innovative Swiss-based KRISS Arms Group. Together, the companies have collaborated on a range of designs, including what they believe to be the first major breakthrough in weapons operating systems in over 120 years – likely a nod to the early recoil-operated system of the Maxim gun developed by Hiram Maxim in 1884. With the unique KRISS Super V System, KRISS USA and the KRISS Arms Group have developed an efficient solution for the modern demands of militaries, law enforcement agencies and civilians worldwide. Located in Virginia Beach, Virginia, KRISS USA is responsible for all production and sales to the North American market, including the KRISS Vector carbine.
Before discussing the KRISS Vector carbine in detail, it is worth taking a look at the KRISS Super V System, also known as the KSVS.
Though unconventional, the KSVS operating system that is found in all KRISS firearms was designed by Renaud Kerbrat over a five-year period and is actually an ingenious design that works with the operator to provide for an accurate close-quarters battle firearm. By incorporating a mechanism that allows the block and bolt of the firearm to recoil off-axis into a recess behind the magazine well, the firearm is able to reduce the amount of recoil felt by the operator by directing the force downward rather than into the shoulder. This also provides for reduced muzzle rise and allows for increased control and accuracy.
As for the KRISS Vector carbine, it is one of the company's semi-automatic offerings that are legal for purchase in the U.S. without registering it as an NFA item. Its 15.9-inch barrel (1:16-inch twist rate) gives the firearm an overall length of 34.8 inches when the stock is unfolded and 26.5 inches when it is folded. The construction of the carbine includes 4140 chrome-moly steel that has been both heat treated and given a manganese phosphate coating for resistance to corrosion. Other components include hard-anodized aluminum and injection-molded, fiber-reinforced polymer. Other features include dual Picatinny rails for the option attachment of tactical equipment, ambidextrous fire controls, and custom flip-up iron sights. As noted, the carbine is chambered for the .45 ACP cartridge and includes a single GLOCK 21 13-round magazine.
Despite the odd appearance of the KRISS Vector carbine, the firearm is a truly unique innovation that is definitely worthy of your time and efforts. Consider grabbing one today for:

The KRISS Vector carbine is now available for $1788.25.
