New from KRISS: GEN2 KRISS Vector

GEN2 KRISS Vector (courtesy The Truth About Guns)

Our man Leghorn got some trigger time with the full-zoot KRISS Vector SMG back in June. That bad boy spits out .45 ACP at “a finger-scorching” 1,200 rounds per minute. Which left Nick underwhelmed, accuracy-wise. Roger that. The semi’s the one to have – if you’re into that whole pistol-caliber SBR-ish thing. (*cough * SB Tactical Brace  *cough*) New for 2015: the GEN2 KRISS VECTOR, complete with . . .

new barrel shrouds and new, more aggressive moulding on the base of the magazine well, pistol grip and side. The new Vector’s rails vector into your LGS with more of a military style shtick. There’s Cerakote for those who demand personalization. And last, but not least, the company’s introduced a new trigger. Which can be retrofitted to a GEN1 Vector without excessive fuss or muss.

KRISS has moved from a sliding go-pedal to a pivoting bang-switch. It’s a much cleaner trigger pull that genuinely enhances the experience of shooting something that looks like a ballistic book and sends recoil down (and up) rather than back (and forth). The new gun arrives Q2.

[NB: When a gunmaker promises sales of a new product will begin in Q2 at SHOT it’s a bit like the furniture store’s six to eight-week delivery schedule. Or a Warner cable guy’s four-hour window. Or the prediction that the world will end on April 14th, ahead of the IRS’ tax filing deadline.]

The GEN2 KRISS Vector will set you back $1795 msrp. Add another $100 for Cerakote.

      No kidding

      I think he did something with his hair.

      1. avatar TravisP says:

        Yeah that’s gotta be it

          Dead give away, look at that trigger discipline. It is Nick.

      2. avatar LK says:

        I think it’s the sweater he’s wearing.

        1. avatar Jeremy S says:

          That’s called a “shrug,” brah.

    3. avatar IAB2 says:


      You guys are brutal! I’m crying here, I am laughing so bad.

      Seriously, Nick-
      you DO need to get some help on the gun accessorizing-

      the ear muffs just don’t go with that flower pattern.

    “The GEN2 KRISS Vector will set you back $1795 msrp.”

    Yeah… no it won’t. There is no way I could be LESS interested in that gun.

    1. avatar Phil COV says:

      What if it was $1800? That would be even less interesting for me.
      It would start getting pretty interesting as it approached $600.

      1. avatar Timmy! says:

        “What if it was $1800? That would be even less interesting for me.”

        LOL, you got me there.

  3. avatar Bryce says:

    I want one!!! *looks at 1986 Gun Owner “PROTECTION” act*

    I want to hang out with FateofDestinee and a few Kriss vectors. I gave her a hard time before for her public speaking skills (or lack thereof) but since then I’ve become a big fan.

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:

      (Fate of) Destinee is my second fav Gun Gal after KJW…

      Did Kriss hire her for Official Booth Babe duty at SHOT?

      1. avatar TheBear says:

        They should.

      2. avatar IAB2 says:

        +1. Destiny and KJW are doing great things for women in guns. Not to mention being VERY easy on the eyes.
        I give Destiny bonus points for putting up with so many well-meant pointers from OFWG, too.

    Hey, low-cut dresses and lots and lots of flying hot brass. What’s not to like? — unless you’re wearing the low-cut dress!

    1. avatar Geoff PR says:


      So I’ve heard…

    2. avatar Summer says:

      There was a situation where a woman wearing a low cut top at a gun range ended up shooting someone else because of doing the hot brass dance while she was still holding her loaded gun.

  6. avatar pyratemime says:

    Slight geeky tangent here but are there any other W40K players here who looked at that and the first thought was, “Who made the Tau pulse rifle?”

    1. avatar Bad-Timing says:

      I don’t know enough about the Tau, or 40K in general, to comment. I’d just like to thank you for reminding me that uber-nerd gun owners exist.

      Do… Do you paint your guns red?

    2. avatar Jimmy says:

      Didn’t remind me of Tau, but like 40K, the Kriss has an astronomical price tag.

    3. avatar DGM says:

      Pulse Rifle or Pulse Carbine?

      I played Necrons and collected and assembled Imperial Guard and Space Marines.

      1. avatar pyratemime says:

        You are right, it does look more like the carbine used in service of the Greater Good.
        Also happy to have been of service in reminding someone that uber-geeks can be uber-gun guys too.

        No red guns as that would be a heretical choice of the ork xenos. The Inquisition would not approve.

        Ok nerd out complete.

  7. avatar Ian says:

    This will actually be out right after the .22lr version they announced last year.

  8. avatar Publius says:

    The biggest reason that I would never consider the Gen 1 carbine was how absurd it looked. The new rectangular barrel shroud looks so much better.

  9. avatar Jonathan - Houston says:

    I’m not really in the market for another PCC at the moment (still getting acquainted with the .357 Henry lever that Santa brought me), but it’s nice to see they’re tending to this product line with some updates.

    My Kriss Vector pistol remains one of my favorite firearms. It’s my go-to gun should someone crash through a window in the middle of the night.

  10. avatar Curtis in IL says:

    If I never again see another photograph taken with the camera tilted 30 degrees, it’ll be too soon.

    I like the woman. But, at my age, first thing I want to know is, can she cook? The rifle? Not so much. I like firearms that you don’t have to read the directions to find out which end the bullet comes out of. I like my women pretty and my firearms simple. I have had more simple firearms than pretty women. But, all were wonderful.

    1. avatar Tim T. says:

      Sure she can cook. Look up Destinee’s kitchen on the Youtube 😉
