The semi-automatic version of the KRISS Super V SMG.  I know the announcement is a month old, so this is definitely old news for some; and while I was sort of peripherally aware that they were offering a civilian legal version, it didn’t really sink in until I noticed an add in G&A this month.

I have never made a secret of the fact that I love pistol caliber carbines, especially for close range defensive work as a civilian.  They’re more accurate than handguns, but without all that pesky recoil that you get from full on rifle calibers.  The new KRISS Vector also takes hi-capacity Glock 21 magazines, which are rather easy to find.

There’s no information on price yet, but it’s probably not going to be cheap.  I will say that if you’re looking at getting a civilian FN PS90 (the civilian 5.7mm carbine), get this and a Glock instead.  You’ll be able to swap magazines and ammo back and forth, and your “tacticool” factor will be absolutely off the charts.

  1. You know of the Medusa revolver, right? (That can fire numerous types of .357/9mm ammunition.)

    What there needs to be is a “Medusa carbine”. It would make a good companion to various handguns.

  2. The scary part of the referred to article is that it is only 38-state legal. Are there really 12 states where they prohibit a rifle unless you get “approval from the authorities”?

  3. The January 2008 issue of Shooting Illustrated magazine contains an article about the Vector CRB/SO. They give an MSRP of $1100.00 – $1300.00. The article itself was fairly lackluster and didn’t give very detailed information. I got the feeling that instead of a intensive test and evaluation, the author just went out and had fun with his T&E firearm.
