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.
