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.
