Smaller calibers are making quite a surge lately. Between 5.7 and the .22 LR it seems that the gun industry is all about going small and compact. And 22 LR, in particular, is getting quite a bit of attention.
Ruger did a .22 LR LCP, Christensen Arms did the Ranger, and Kel Tec has given quite a bit of attention to the classic rimfire round, too. Not to be upstaged KRISS has not given us us the Vector is .22 LR. Their new .22 LR plinker space gun comes in both rifle and braced pistol configurations.
And why not? Who doesn’t love the .22 LR? It’s not 2012 anymore and the affordable rimfire round is in stock everywhere ammo is sold.
The KRISS Vector series of wanna-be SMGs are quite futuristic in design. While the main draw of reduced recoil during full-auto fire is a bit lacking in the semi-auto designs, I can’t help but appreciate the high-tech and futuristic design of the KRISS guns, putting one out in .22 LR gives you a cheap shooting and fun gun with ergonomics that are out of this world.
Shooting the little .22 LR KRISS was a treat. It was easy handling, accurate, and ultimately very fun to shoot. It proved to be reliable. At this time the Kirss .22 LR rifle and pistol models will be released with a 10 round proprietary magazines with 30 round magazines available in the near future.
The Future is Now
I fired quite a few mags through the gun before the line built up behind me at Range Day and it was very soft and accurate. It was also quite reliable. Plenty of shooters before me got behind the gun and dirtied it up nicely before I got my hands on it. I do appreciate the modern controls and ergonomic layout of the KRISS guns.
The Vector CRB .22LR model features a 16” threaded barrel, an M-Lok rail system. This rifle variant comes with a standard 6-position M4 style stock. The Vector SDP-SB .22LR model features a 6.5” barrel thats threaded for any muzzle device you desire. The pistol variant comes complete with an SB Tactical brace.
MSRP is $649 so hopefully, it comes to a street price a bit lower than that. Are you guys in for a rimfire space gun or s the trusty 10/22 serving you well?
